And from the captions on the pictures, apparently you need to not be in Australia. (Hobart is in Taz.)

They also have a southern version of Cygnus called the Southern Cross. It looks like the deadly Australian swan, which has giant talons that rend your flesh while you are still alive.

You know sir, you have a very valid point and from this point forward I shall heed your advice, from this point forward when I think of Australia, I shall think of the positives like Alpine skiing and Ahhnold..

Tasmania is in the country of Australia.  It is also part of the continent of Australia.  The only Australian thing it isn't in is the mainland portion of the Australian continent.
