Tasmania - Australia's island state - offers an amazing range of landscapes and production location opportunities in a compact environment.

Tasmania's rugged, ancient beauty commands attention. Its vast tracts of World Heritage wilderness are unparalleled in Australia. From wild mountain ranges, remote plateaux and magical forests to colonial towns and rural areas. Click here for general information about Tasmanian destinations.
