Why is Tasmania called Tasmania?

Tasmania has had two different names.Tasmania's original name was Van Diemen's Land and it was named after the Governor of Batavia, Antony Van Diemen.In the mid 1800s, it was renamed after the Dutch explorer Abel Tasman, the first European to discover and land on the island.

How old is Tasmania?

It depends on what you mean by "how old". Much of Tasmania is composed of dolerite which means the island began life as stewing magma agitating under the earth's crust until, some 145-199 million years ago, it spewed forth from the belly of the earth during the Jurassic period. Much later, about ten thousand years ago, Tasmania split off from the mainland of Australia, compelled by tectonic forces to begin a new life as an island. Anthropological evidence suggests man occupied Tasmania some 35,000 years ago, long before it drifted out to sea. In 1642, Abel Tasman, the European to discover the island, spotted Tasmania. British colonies occupied the island in the early 19th century.

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.
