The Destination

Tasmania is a place of wild and beautiful landscapes, friendly people with a relaxed island lifestyle, wonderful food and wine, and a haunting history evoked by world-famous convict ruins. It’s also Australia’s smallest state and the most geographically diverse with over 40 per cent reserved as national parks and world heritage wilderness. No matter where you go, whether you spend time in one place or drive around the island, we know you’ll be delighted by what you’ll find and surprised at how much bigger Tasmania is on the inside. www.discovertasmania.com.au

International Seaweed Association

The International Seaweed Association (ISA) is an international organisation dedicated to the encouragement of research and development of seaweed and seaweed products. The mission of the ISA is to promote applied phycology on a global basis, and to stimulate interactions among researchers, industrialists and government representatives in all relevant institutions, organizations and industries and in all countries.


One of the main activities of the ISA is the organisation of a 3-yearly International Seaweed Symposium of which 20 have now taken place all over the world. The 23rd Symposium took place in Korea in 2019 and Australia will host the 24th Symposium in Hobart, Tasmania.
