The state has a new premier, and now the focus is on them getting down to business on the countless pledges they put forward along the election campaign trail.
Meanwhile, the pages of The Examiner were filled with stories and voices unrelated to the election, but equally important to the local community.
Here are five stories you might have missed and we think are particularly important for you to know about:
Wednesday marked the 25-year anniversary of the Port Arthur tragedy.
A number of men and women who were serving in the police force during the tragedy, some of who were speaking for the first time, discussed how the event had continued to impact them long into their lives.
The officers discussed what they were doing when they first were called into action, how they had no idea what was coming, and how they quickly realised what was unfolding would be one of the most significant events in their career.
Northern Tasmania's former police commander Brett Smith was one who shared his experience.
He was a freshly promoted sergeant working in the radio room at the time and said what unfolded was "permanently etched into my mind".
"The enormity of it hit a number of our operators when we started to see a list of names. When you actually saw the names, people's names, it was quite confronting. Not a lot happened in my time in the radio room that I remember as vividly as this," he said.
All voices involved in the story were adamant that the killer could not be named, and what was most crucial was honouring victims through their memory.
The story comprised of a two-part series on the event and a podcast featuring some of those involved in the story.
A 50-hectare section of native forest known as CC161B considered a corridor to Blue Tier is due to be clearfelled, burned and sowed at some stage this year.
This type of practice employed by Sustainable Timer Tasmania has long divided political and environmental opinion.
This part of the forest highlights the crossover between native forestry, tourism and clearfelled and reseeded vegetation.
STT, a slew of experts on forestry practices in Tasmania, and people who have a vested interest in how CC161B is maintained discussed their views on the section of forestry, and the pros and cons of ripping down old growth.
On Sunday the O'Byrne family patriarch, Brian O'Byrne died in his sleep "unexpectedly and peacefully" aged 79.
Mr O'Byrne had been a fixture in his children's, Labor politicians Michelle and David O'Byrne, lives.
He was also a well-known local identity who was a life member of the Hospital Employees Union, now known as the Health and Community Services Union.
Mr O'Byrne's death came in the last week of his children's election campaign, and despite the volatility of such a campaign, both Michelle and David took time out to honour their father.
Premier Peter Gutwein also took the time to offer his condolences to the O'Byrne family.
His funeral was held on Thursday in Launceston.
Last weekend was a big one for Launceston TSL star Dylan Riley who booted 10-goals in his sides come from behind victory over North Hobart.
Riley, who is the reigning Hudson Medallist for kicking the most goals in the TSL season last year, chalked up a league record nine-goal second half.
Speaking to The Examiner, Riley explained that the promise of a beer after the game spurred on his tenth goal.
"[Brendan Taylor] wasn't going to give it to me, I had to tell him I was on nine goals and then he handballed it off to me," Riley said.
"Credit to him - I offered to buy him a beer after the game but he said it was all good."
Wilson security, which won a four-year tender through 2018 to 2022 to supply court security, told The Examiner it was struggling to attract staff to fill the tender.
Shortages of security staff at the Launceston and Burnie Magistrates Court required staff from the Tasmanian Prison Service to help out.
A spokesperson for the security company said an industry-wide shortage of qualified personnel was to blame for the issue.
A department of justice spokesperson said the department was "committed to the safety and security of everyone within the court buildings".
United Workers Union state secretary Jannette Armstrong said waning job security was to blame for the lack of personnel.
