Where we are botanically speaking ...
Tasmania is the southern most and only island state of Australia, separated from the mainland by Bass Strait. Its territory, including Flinders Island, Cape Barren Island and other offshore islands, gives it a total area of 67,800sq. km. Hobart is the state capital and the largest city situated at latitude 43 degrees south.
Tasmania is mountainous and a central plateau slopes gradually southeast from a height of about 1000m. Being an island, Tasmania is spared extremes of weather.
Winter temperatures rarely drop below -7 degrees C. (in mountainous areas) and summer temperatures rarely exceed 35 degrees C. Rainfall ranges from 2000mm (+) in the west to less than 500mm in the east.
There are about 2000 species of flowering plants known to occur in Tasmania with more than 200 endemic species. The vegetation has two components, the Antarctic or Southern Oceanic Flora and the Australian Flora. Antarctic flora has close links with South America and New Zealand. Many plants belonging to this type of flora are endemic. The Australian floral type is characterised by Wattles (Acacia species), Pea flowers and Eucalyptus species, which Tasmania shares with the rest of southeast Australia.
Several types of vegetation are recognised: temperate rainforest or myrtle forest, sclerophyll or eucalypt forest (both dry and wet), montane vegetation, coastal heath and sedgeland.
