The challenge is set. The bass strait, a paddleboard journey into the unknown. Waves, wind, tides, sharks and shitty weather all bundled up into one hectic environment. Can't wait to find out how this adventure pans out and what is on the other side. @nicko.ray @onesector_construction @menofbusiness_mob @jazz_sundo
TASMANIA was once the forgotten little state separated from the rest of Australia by #BassStrait and no real desire from most Aussies to mark it down as a summer destination. But it seems now we can’t get enough of the #AppleIsle so start thinking about your #Hobart car rental now with an eye on scooting way down south for the #summerholidays .
Let’s not forget what happened earlier this year when #Tasmania loaded up with gold across five categories at the #Qantas Australian Tourism Awards. Not only that, Tasmania collected seven silver, two bronze and The Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel was inducted into the Hall of Fame. What’s more, Tassie picked up the most awards out of every state.
Such is Tasmania’s charm that Roy Morgan Research earlier this year revealed Hobart now outranks Perth and Brisbane as a capital city holiday destination Australians want to visit.
An image of Tasmania and surrounding waters using density slicing to show phytoplankton concentration. The ocean color as captured by the satellite image is mapped to seven colors: Yellow, orange and red indicate more phytoplankton, while light green, dark green, light blue and dark blue indicate less phytoplankton; land and clouds are depicted in different colors.
Density slicing is used in the analysis of remote sensingimages. For density slicing the range of grayscale levels is divided into intervals, with each interval assigned to one of a few discrete colors – this is in contrast to pseudo color, which uses a continuous color scale. .
The second image is also of Tasmania. .
The island state of Tasmania is located some 400 kilometres south of the mainland of Australia and is Australia's smallest state (65,000 sq. km.), measuring only 200 kilometres from north to south and east to west at its broadest points. It takes its name from Abel Tasman who first charted the island in 1642 and originally named it Van Diemens Land. Like those who visit it today he was struck by its intense and varied beauty.
As Australia's most southern land mass, it is snow capped throughout much of the year, and the mountainous terrain and many lakes provide a tranquil and beautiful island which is a popular destination for holiday makers from all over the world.
For travellers, the island can be divided mainly into 4 sections. The North-West, where the ferry from Melbourne disembarks at Devonport, the North-East, with beautiful beaches and snow capped mountain peaks, the South West, renowned for the system of rivers and the beautiful rain forests which comprise a magnificent World Heritage Area, and the South East, which houses the ruins of the penal settlement of Port Arthur, and has a rugged and beautiful coastline interspersed with many fine beaches.
Our City Superstars played out a 2 all draw against Victoria which ended in a 6-5 loss for Tassie in the Bass Strait Cup today at Bulleen, Victoria.
PFD Super League Best & Fairest Beth Bygrave was named captain for he outing and played the full 90 minutes with a few chances on goal.
Caitlin Storay was amongst it and a handful for 65 minutes in central midfield having her shot blocked midway in the first half.
Top effort girls! We’re so proud of you and your efforts playing for Tasmania 🖤⚽️⚫️⚪️ #cmoncity#launceston#tasmania#fft#womeninsports#victoria#bassstrait#cup#bulleen#forzajuve#juventus#juventuswomen
