Tasmania has an estimated population of 495,000, mainly concentrated on the north and south east coasts. Total land mass covers an area of 68,401 km2. Known as the Natural State, almost 37% of Tasmania is in reserves, National Parks and World Heritage Sites. The state currently has 19 national parks, covering more than 1.4 million hectares or nearly 21% of the state’s total land area. The four largest national parks are on the World heritage list. Originally name Van Diemens Land, the first European to see Tasmania was Dutch Navigator Abel Tasman in 1642, although it was not until 1803 that settlers arrived. Early settlers were mostly convicts and their guards. All major Australian domestic airlines have routes to Tasmania, the state is also conveniently accessible by ferry from Melbourne.
