Rugged mountains that are resplendent with native flora, jewels of lakes and brimming rivers that crisscross the region, dramatic rock formations and the pristine blue sea lapping against them, and remote communities with their patchwork farmlands, cattle and cellars, Central and South East Tasmania is a window to another kind of a world.

The South East is spread wide covering approximately 23,820 square kilometres encompassing nearly one-third of the state. It surrounds the capital city of Hobart and includes the Tasman Peninsula, Bruny Island and the Huon Valley, as well as many remote and rural parts of the region. The area supports a small population of 38,000 residents. However, it continues to grow with a constant influx of people arriving to settle here.

Large tracts of land are conserved and protected, and only 28% of the region is utilized for agricultural and pastoral activities. Cherry, wool, sheep and lamb are the prime produce. Aquaculture, with recreational and wild fishing, receives high participation. Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing is the largest sector employing 3,100 people. Healthcare and Social Assistance is the second largest, generating over 1,900 jobs.

Tourism is a growing sector, with a large number of tourists visiting the region for the authentic nature and wildlife experiences. The southern wine trail is a booming enterprise and vineyards have sprouted along countryside areas in the Coal River Wine Region and D’Entrecasteaux Channel.
