  • Tasmania is the only state of Australia which is not part of the mainland.
  • Tasmania also has a much cooler temperature year-round than the mainland states.
  • Tasmania is the only state in which the Tasmanian Devil is found in the wild (although it once roamed the whole continent).
  • Tasmania is the smallest of all of the states (discounting the territory of the ACT)
  • The island is predominantly bushland and cool temperate rainforest, whereas the other states have fewer areas of rainforest in relation to their entire area.
