You've arrived at the road photos and information section that covers Tasmania.

Tasmania is an island state that covers an area of 68 401 square kilometres on the south-easternmost part of Australia. 1

The State-owned road network consists of 3650 km of road. The State road network primarily consists of roads that provide connectivity between cities, major towns, rural catchments and key port and air transport hubs. The Tasmanian Department of Infrstructure, Energy and Resources has adopted a five-tier hierarchy. 2

The Hierarchy identifies five categories of roads: 2

Tasmania route numbering system is alphanumeric. Tasmania was the first state to introduce alphanumeric routes, with the exception of one route – National Highway 1. This is because of a Federal Government requirement, when the system was introduced, that the National Highway route be signposted with the traditional National Highway shield. Before the introduction of alphanumeric route numbering in the late 1970s, a small collection of State Routes existed, similar to those used in other states prior to the introduction of alphanumeric route numbers.

Below are the various roads that this site has photos of. The numbered routes are sorted by their route number. To view each gallery, click on the thumbnail or route number.
