| ||On the east coast of the great Island of Tasmania, the Wineglass Bay displays the perfect curve of its white sand beach. The grey and pink granite outcrops of the Hazards Mountains close the horizon. This natural site is touristy, but being within the limits of Freycinet National Park, it is protected like the 17 others such parks in Tasmania. Their area represents one third of Tasmania. UNESCO World Heritage Area since 1982, The Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area is another protected territory encompassing 1.38 million hectares or 20% of the island’s land area. It is one of the largest wild area in the Southern Hemisphere. The animal life symbolized by the Tasmanian devil, a carnivorous marsupial, and the flora symbolized by the Huon pine, are highly endemic. In to protect this natural héritage, public authorities favor an environmentally friendly tourism. Thus, the main lodging and tourism infrastructures are situated outside of the protected areas.
