Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Shows some of the highlights of Tasmania’s scenery. Pictures the many threads which combine to form the tapestry of life in the State of Tasmania - a pattern composed of high, snowcapped mountains, lakes, fast streams, hop fields, orchards, towns and cities rich in colonial history: of fast developing secondary industries, great mineral resources and expanding hydro-electric schemes.
