Why Tasmania?

You have seen the beautiful photographs and the stirring videos. You’ve tasted a Tasmanian pinot noir or you’ve ridden on a Tasmanian-made wave-piercing catamaran. Maybe you’ve visited, so you know what it’s like in this magical place. Maybe you’ve experienced one of our festivals, discovered a white sand beach of your very own, rode on a bush mountain bike track or met a producer or two at a local weekend market.

It is a much bigger step to apply for a job in Tasmania, but you won’t be alone when you arrive. No matter what you do, you’ll find others who have made the decision to leave metropolitan life behind to create something extraordinary here in Tasmania.

You’ll soon be working hard during the day and bushwalking in the evenings and weekends, breathing the cleanest air in the world.

Living in Tasmania you will have the best of everything - career opportunities, an active and healthy way of life, space and a connected community.

Being Tasmanian isn’t about where you’re born. It’s a way of life, what you value.

You can be a Dentist or Oral Health Therapist anywhere, but can you BE TASMANIAN?
