Benjamin Franklin famously once said: ''out of adversity comes opportunity''.
It's safe to say 2020 has brought plenty of adversity, both locally and around the world.
With the closures brought on from COVID-19, the state's tourism sector has taken a considerable blow.
This is an industry that directly and indirectly supports around 42,000 jobs in Tasmania, or about 17.2 per cent of total Tasmanian employment - higher than the national average and the highest in the country.
However, from this unique moment or adversity, Tasmanians also have an opportunity.
Now more than ever, Tasmania is ready to be explored by those who call it home.
This is a time when crowds are few and far between, and when locals can help an industry that is vital to our state's future.
And if it's been a while since your last big Tassie adventure, be prepared to be wowed.
Within these pages we have highlighted some of our favourite trips around the state, from the remote West Coast beaches to its best food drives.
For those who feel you never really get away without jumping on a plane, there's also Flinders Island to explore.
Wild, untouched, pristine, remote, pure and inspiring: these are just some of the words used to describe our island. Now is the time to get out there and discover the truth in them for yourself.
