While in Australia during the Fall of 2005 I was fortunate enough to visit the pure community of Tasmania. It's easy to call this large island off Australia's southern coast a pure community because with a population density of 18 people per square mile human contact is a pleasure. Tazzies just like things simple and quaint. This theme is expressed in their devotion to the land. 36% of Tasmania is protected by National Parks or World Heritage Sites.
This photo was taken on a nearly perfect day during our drive North from Hobart on route to famous Wine Glass Bay.
If I ever get the chance to go back to Tasmania I would do a bike trip starting in Hobart moving to the North and circling around the island visiting all the natural beauties to finally end in Hobart again.
