Tasmania has lovely bush and scenery. Wineglass bay on the east coast is a beautiful beach and people come from all around the world to see it. It is part of Freycinet National Park.
Tasmania Is home to the Tasmanian devil, and was home to the Tasmanian tiger which is now extinct. The Tasmanian tiger was the biggest marsupial but it is now extinct. The last Tasmanian tiger was called Benjamin but it was, surprisingly, a girl.
In Australia more people die surfing than they die from shark attacks every year.
Hobart is the capital city of Tasmania. Our school is close to the city and is the third oldest school in the country. Tasmania was originally used for convicts brought from England. Some convicts had only stolen a loaf of bread to try and feed their families. The history of Tasmania is very interesting.
