abbreviated as Tas
and known colloquially as "Tassie") is an island state
. It is located 240 km (150 mi) to the south of the Australian mainland, separated by the Bass Strait
. The state encompasses the main island of Tasmania, the 26th-largest island in the world
, and the surrounding 334 islands

Tasmania's area is 68,401 km2 (26,410 sq mi), of which the main island covers 64,519 km2 (24,911 sq mi).
Promoted as a natural state; protected areas of Tasmania
cover about 42% of the land area of the state, which includes national parks

Tasmania was the founding place of the first environmental party in the world.
Though an island state, due to a mapping error the state shares a land border with Victoria
at its northernmost terrestrial point, Boundary Islet
, a nature reserve in Bass Strait. The Bishop and Clerk Islets
, about 37 km south of Macquarie Island, are the southernmost terrestrial point of the state of Tasmania, and the southernmost internationally recognised land in Australia.
