Tasmania ~ Island of Treasures

Tasmania is very well known for its built heritage and its many beautiful Georgian and Victorian buildings, indeed there are whole villages that are straight from the pages of history.

Accompanying this built heritage is a rich collection of beautiful and significant artefacts.

The state collection is on display in the larger population centres and in a fascinating array of smaller museums curated by an army of dedicated volunteers.

This beautifully produced book with 133 museums and history groups celebrates our physical links with the past and acknowledges the people, amateur and professional, who ensure the survival of our physical cultural heritage.
