Who founded Tasmania?

Tasmania could be said to have been founded by Lieutenant-Governor David Collins in 1804. He was directed by the British Government to establish a convict settlement on Australia's southern coast. This settlement did not succeed due to the lack of fresh water, suitable local timber and the fact that the treacherous entrance to Port Phillip Bay made the site unusable as a whaling base.Collins had heard that there was better land and timber in Van Diemen's Land, so he moved most of the settlement across Bass Strait, and established Hobart on the Derwent River early in 1804.
