4. Tasmania (TAS)
Tasmania is probably the most interesting state among all others. It is the only Australian state that doesn’t lie on the mainland. The Bass Strait separates this state from the Australian mainland.
The state is surrounded by water bodies(by both the Indian & Pacific Ocean) and doesn’t share land borders. Its coastline measures about 4500km – which is longer than the combined coastlines of NSW and Victoria.
Also, it is promoted as a natural state and the protected areas cover about 42% of the total land area, including national parks and World Heritage Sites. The map above marks these locations in different earthy color hues.
Any Tassie expatriate would be thrilled to receive this map as a gift.
5. Victoria (VIC)
We have a super-sized map of the smallest state of Australia. Victoria, despite its small size, is the second-most populous state and includes the metropolitan area of Melbourne, Australia’s second-largest city. The map also includes all the bordering places like Tasmania on the south, New South Wales on the north, the Tasman Sea on the east, and South Australia on the west.
