lutruwita/ Tasmania - we are an island state with more than 540,000 people. To locals we are ‘Tas’ or ‘Tassie’.

What’s unique about us? Our vibrant and safe cities go hand in hand with nature, resulting in a relaxed and harmonious way of life.

A Tasmanian lifestyle, just like our education, is focussed on quality. We breathe some of the world’s cleanest air, drink its purest water and eat and drink food and beverage of exceptional quality. Our cities and towns are historically rich and yet modern and vibrant. We have trendy cafés, sensational seasonal festivals and internationally renowned museums and galleries.

Our lifestyle is influenced by the beautiful nature of the island: Tasmania has more than 1000 mountain peaks to climb, stunning beaches to visit and ancient rainforests to discover.

Active by nature? In Tasmania, there is a large range of extracurricular activities on offer to students. Whether it is joining a sports club, participating in a cultural festival, visiting a museum or art gallery, shopping, or exploring the beautiful natural environment and scenery, you will always find something interesting to do.

Want to be Tasmanian?

It’s different in Tasmania, and we have learned to embrace it - to make it our strength. Our cities are fun and beautiful, yet they are among the safest in the world. We are never far from the wilderness and its special animals, the land and sea, clean air and clean water.

In Tasmania, you can hear yourself think yet you won’t feel alone. We want to know your name.
