At Map of Tassie Tours we love sharing the historic tours Tasmania has to share.

Tasmania is rich in history from it’s first European discovery by Abel Tasman in 1642.   Fascinating stories of the lives and adventures of early settlers, convicts, bushrangers and gold prospectors abound.  The story of Tasmania’s indigenous people since European settlement is a tragic one.

You can read more about Tasmania’s history on the Lonely Planet website.
