BEING TASMANIAN IS THE QUIET PURSUIT OF THE EXTRAORDINARY

 

In Tasmania, we protect our environment. We draw on our culture of invention and enterprise. As a result, everything we grow and make is different. If you want it renewable, you want it TASMANIAN. 

Our clean environment, rigorous standards and culture of invention and experimentation create finer foods and beverages. Our mining equipment, boats and military hardware are highly specialised. Tasmania's tourism experiences focus on what can only happen here, taking advantage of our special environment, our ingenuity and our culture.

FEATURED TASMANIAN ENTERPRISES 

In the fast-paced and competitive world of business, growing a business and reaching the top requires more than just a pinch of luck. No matter what the business, businesses at the top of their game share many similar qualities, such as a deep and ingrained culture of excellence, total commitment, ultra-competitiveness, incredible bravery, inspiring creativity, extraordinary products and above all, constant evolution.

Tasmania's isolation and the push for globalisation meant that the island state had to reinvent its economy. In order to compete, Tasmanians had to work harder, drawing on their entrepreneurship and Tasmania's unique position of being in the imagination of Australia and the world.
