About this book

Tasmania is an increasingly popular destination for both local and international holiday-makers. Its main attraction is its large tracts of wilderness, its natural beauty and plenty of highly visible wildlife. Many of Tasmania's animals are found nowhere else on Earth, not even on Australia's mainland.

This book features 29 wildlife hotspots where people have a good chance of seeing animals in their natural habitat. The key species for each spot are listed and the area and its facilities described, together with a map and notes about accessibility.

Another indispensable part of this fully illustrated book is a gallery of colour photographs and descriptions of the animals likely to be encountered in Tasmania.
