Maps • Tasmanian (TAS) Islands
The state of Tasmania is south of Victoria and is separated by the Bass Strait. The Tasman Sea is off the east coast, with the Southern Ocean off the west coast. Tasmania has some 1,000 islands1, some protected conservation and wildlife refuges, others providing a range of access and activities for the tourist.

The map shown here is not to scale, but is provided to give you an indication of the locality of certain islands around the Tasmania coast.

Please note that this is not a definitive list of islands around Tasmania, if we have missed any, please feel free to email us the additions.
