Tasmania's Tipping Point

Listen to Tasmania's Tipping Point

Once the Apple Isle, Tasmania’s size and isolation made it the butt of mainland jokes. But those qualities – and its stunning natural environment – are now seen as major advantages. And the buzz (and tourism) generated by MONA, and the island’s new identity as a research hub, suggests times are changing. Favel Parrett, Jo Chandler and Scott Rankin talk Tassie to celebrate Griffith Review’s Tasmania edition, with its editor, Natasha Cica.
