Here are some of our native animals:

  • Tasmanian devil
  • spotted tail quoll
  • wombat
  • echidna
  • wallabies
  • platypus.

Tasmania has beautiful bush land. Here are some of the types of trees:

  • huon pine (famous for it’s wood)
  • blue gum
  • wattle
  • eucalyptus trees

Tasmania has chilly waters, but it doesn’t freeze. We have good waves to surf on. At Ship Stern Bluff there are some pretty scary waves! Check out this YouTube taken here at Ship Stern Bluff, which as you can see is a fairly southern end of Tasmania:
