ICONS OF TASMANIA

Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service

Welcome to our backyard. Come and explore.

Welcome!

The Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service acknowledges the Aboriginal people of Tasmania and their relationship and connection to the land, sea and community. We respect the Elders—past, present and future.

Tasmania is one of the most beautiful places on Earth: compact, diverse, wild, yet accessible. The island State’s famous national parks and reserves protect a wide range of its unspoiled landscapes, intact ecosystems and striking cultural heritage. These places are a refuge for an array of plants and animals found nowhere else on Earth including iconic species such as the Tasmanian devil. They offer visitors a superb range of natural and cultural experiences. Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service manages around 50 per cent of the State’s area, including the internationally renowned Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area protects one of the last true wilderness regions and remains one of the richest natural and cultural landscapes on Earth.

This guide introduces you to some of the features of these special places. But there’s no substitute for getting out there and seeing for yourself. We hope you enjoy your visit.

ICONS OF TASMANIA

BOFA Film Festival is proudly Tasmania’s film festival and we are understandably lovers of all things Tasmanian. So, this year we have picked the best wine, spirits and food producers, the best places to stay while you enjoy Tasmania, the best producers of artisanal and other products as well as the best providers of uniquely Tasmanian experiences.

We call them the Icons of Tasmania.
