The beautiful idyllic island of Tasmania found that personal testimony was the best way to increase tourist numbers, and these continued to grow each year at a steady rate.
In 1913 the Tasmanian Government Railway Department issued 'A Guide to Tasmania: The Premier Health Resort', which was not intended as an advertisement of the state, but as a guide to those who were visiting, showing them the various means of getting to Tasmania, the costs, and advice on places to visit.
It provides the reader with an accommodation directory, and details Hobart, Launceston and their surrounds. Places on the west coast, as well as those on the Western Line are also covered. Information is included on caves, rivers and lakes, hotels, railway lines, and other useful information for tourists. There is a detailed map and numerous photographs.

This CD contains high quality scanned images of the whole original volume, and has been bookmarked for easy navigation. Pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
