National Parks turn 100!

By August 29, 2016Out and about...

100 years ago, on 29th August 1916, Tasmania’s first two national parks were established – Mt Field and Freycinet. More than 40% of Tasmania’s landmass is protected as a national park or reserve (some of which is also World Heritage listed) which is a testament to the distinctive, unique and diverse natural environment that Tasmania is well known for. Unspoilt landscapes, wildlife not found anywhere else in the world and native flora that evolved when Tasmania (and Australia) was a part of Gondwanaland – this is just some of what you can expect to enjoy … those of us who live in Tasmania sure are privileged with such a spectacular backyard to explore.

The centenary is a rather significant milestone, so to celebrate it and showcase some of the diversity of these stunning regions we’ve displayed some of our photos for you to view (but we couldn’t possibly display all of our photos)… enjoy!
