The Tasmanian government ignored the advice of its own experts to push ahead with logging in the habitat of the endangered swift parrot, internal departmental documents have revealed.

The documents show that experts warned the Tasmanian Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and the Environment of the impact of approving logging in five areas of forest in the state’s south-east.

Dropping wilderness tag from Tasmania's Wilderness World Heritage Area plan will damage tourism, industry group says

A move to ditch the word "wilderness" from Tasmania's Wilderness World Heritage Area (TWWHA) management plan will damage the state's brand, the tourism industry says.

The Tasmanian Government is taking submissions on its draft management plan for area, which covers almost a quarter of the state.
"Any shift in the perception or that we're downgrading the value of the wilderness within such an iconic brand of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area is something I don't think is required, or even really critical to what everyone's trying to achieve here, which I guess is a contemporary, balanced approach to management of these areas."

The industry's submission also said the concept of wilderness was integral to the economic value of the area the tourism industry.

Tasmania's wilderness supports 10 per cent of tourism businesses in the state, about 100 of which operate within the TWWHA.

International as an Important Bird Area because of its importance for waders, especially Pied Oystercatchers.
The area was named Panatana by local Aborigines. The town was originally a fishing and sealing port named Burgess, however the name was officially changed to Port Sorell (after Governor Sorell) in 1822. The town could have been a lot larger than it is now, had it not been for bushfires, after which nearby Devonport grew to become a major port. At the 2006 census, Port Sorell had a population of 2,211.Today Port Sorell is one of many popular holiday spots along the north coast of Tasmania.
The first Port Sorell Post Office opened on 1 February 1845 and closed in 1863. The current office opened on 3 July 1944.

Russell Falls

The Russell Falls, a tiered–cascade waterfall on the Russell Falls Creek, is located in the Central Highlands region of Tasmania, Australia.

Pin It : https://www.pinterest.com/pin/465067098996405012/

The Russell Falls are situated on the eastern boundary of Mount Field National Park, 100 metres (330 ft) downstream of the Horseshoe Falls, approximately 70 kilometres (43 mi) northwest of Hobart via the Brooker and Lyell highways. Accessible by a paved walking track, the falls are a popular tourist attraction. The waterfall descends over horizontal marine Permian siltstone benches, while the vertical faces of the falls are composed of resistant sandstone layers.

They were first named the Brownings Falls after the original discoverer, circa1856, but were known as the Russell Falls after 1884, by which time they were already a popular tourist attraction. The Falls Reserve was established in 1885 and in 1899 the Russell Falls were selected as one of eight images to be used on a set of pictorial postage stamps, aimed at promoting the then colony's growing tourist industry.

Tassie tourism running hot, according to latest official figures

BOOM times are continuing for Tasmania’s tourism industry, with the latest Tasmanian Visitor Survey showing record visitor numbers in 2014 and expenditure topping $1 billion.

Tourism Industry Council Tasmania chief executive Luke Martin said the latest results showed strong growth in holiday visitor numbers and expenditure — with particularly encouraging signs from the key growth market of South-East Queensland.

“These results show the transition that’s occurring across the Australian tourism industry, with economic uncertainty and a lower Australian dollar driving growth in domestic tourism as Australians choose to holiday closer to home,” Mr Martin said.

The figures show air travel is up by 3 per cent and sea travel up by 4 per cent on the previous year.

“Tasmania is the right place at the right time to seize this opportunity, with unprecedented positivity about Tasmania as a destination and an exciting suite of new and innovative tourism experiences entering the market.”

 It starts in the Northallerton Valley below Ben Nevis in the states North East, joining with the St Patricks River before flowing through Launceston. Launceston's Old Seaport tourist feature is located on the North Esk River. The river becomes tidal downstream of Hoblers Bridge to where it meets the Tamar. It is sometimes subject to flooding, especially in East Launceston suburbs.

The largest tributary of the North Esk is the St Patricks River, with others including the Ford River which flows from the skifields of Ben Lomond and down stream of the Corra Linn Gorge, the Roses Rivulet and Distillery Creek.

The famous Australian beer factory Boags draws its water from St Patricks River.
