54 | australia the education destination australian state profiles tasmania students in tasmania find friendly, supportive campuses and affordable prices on an island With World heritage-listed national parks, Writes margaret-ann Williams. IN TASMANIA, you can walk to campus each day, breathe the freshest air in the world, drink the purest water and enjoy a high quality of life at an affordable price. The small size of Tasmania means that students receive personalised, friendly support on campus and they become part of the community. It is said that good things come in small packages – this is certainly true of Tasmania. Historic cities and rugged landscapes The heart-shaped island is about the size of Sri Lanka. It is mountainous, with a dramatic coastline, incredible beaches and magnificent rainforests. Much of this unique landscape is now World Heritage-listed. Tourists from around the world visit Tasmania for its extraordinary natural environment, wildlife and colonial history. Hobart, Tasmania’s capital, with its fine harbour, is the second oldest city in Australia after Sydney. Launceston, known as the ‘Garden City’, is the third oldest. Both were founded in the early nineteenth century. Tasmania is famous for its fresh fruit and specialty agricultural products: apples, lavender, farmhouse cheeses, wine – even truffles. Other industries range from tourism to aquaculture and every aspect of marine industry and manufacturing. Tasmania is also known as a creative state for its poets and authors, musicians, artists and craftspeople. tasmania
