Books in Tasmania

Edit This
Here are some books that to assist you in planning a Tasmanian Holiday. Most of them are available from Amazon.com, don't forget to tell 'em who sent ya!

The stories by Richard Flanagan are semi-historical, so they are a good way to learn about the history while also reading a great novel. They should also give you a taste of the mood known as "Tasmanian Gothic".

Thomas' book is a must for those planning a hiking holiday in Tasmania, it gives good route descriptions and walk times. Maps referenced are usuall Tasmaps - if unavailable in stores you can buy them from the Lands Department in Hobart.

The sailing books should convince you that sailing in Tasmanian waters is not for the unitiated, but don't let them put you off ...
