11 Photos That Will Make You Want To Visit Tasmania

Without sounding too biased, I would have to say that Australia is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Just off the Southern coast of mainland Australia lies another, much smaller Australia, by the name of "Tasmania." OK, so Tasmania is actually it's own state within Australia, but I like to think of it as a "mini" Australia, so to speak, because it literally has everything to offer (scenically speaking) as the mainland. Rainforests, white sand beaches, snow capped mountains, towering waterfalls, beautiful rivers and lakes, a massive population of native animals, underground cave systems, the list goes on - Tasmania seriously has it all!
