Interactive map of Tasmania - click on a locality to go there
Sitting just 240 kilometres south-east of mainland Australia, Tasmania has long had the nickname Apple Isle due to the large amount of fruit grown there. In Tasmania, you are never far from water and mountains - it has more than 1,000 mountain peaks. More than 40 per cent of the island is protected as national parks and reserves, which are home to some of the world's rarest animals.
For one-touch access to our Visitors Guide to Tasmania on your phone or tablet, you can download a hotlink app button to your device's homescreen. Follow the simple instructions below for the type of device you have:
Android: Open this page in Google Chrome. Tap the menu button and tap "Add to homescreen". Chrome will add it to your home screen. The icon will appear on your home screen like any other app shortcut or widget, so you can drag it around and put it wherever you like. If using Firefox for Android, tap the menu button, tap the Page option, and tap Add to Home Screen.
IOS (iPhone; iPad): Open this page in Safari. Tap the Share button on the browser's toolbar - that's the rectangle with an arrow pointing upward. It's on the bar at the top of the screen on an iPad, and on the bar at the bottom of the screen on an iPhone or iPod Touch. Tap the "Add to Home Screen" icon in the Share menu. The icon can be dragged around and placed anywhere, including in app folders - just like an app icon.
Windows: Open this website in Internet Explorer. Tap the More ( &) button and tap Pin to Start in the menu that appears. Windows Phone 8.1 supports live tile updates from websites that have configured the feature, just as Windows 8 does.
BlackBerry: Open this website in your web browser. Press the three dot menu button and select "Add to Home Screen".
Other phones: if you have another type of smartphone or tablet, it probably has a screen icon download feature, too. Just open its browser and look in its menu for an option named something like "Add to home screen" or "Pin to home screen."
