Becoming Tasmania - Renaming Van Diemen's Land
 
(0 reviews)  

Where did the name Van Diemen's Land come from? How was it chosen? Were there any alternatives? And how did it obtain self-government and the new name of Tasmania?

The evolution of Van Diemen's Land society involved a struggle to rid the island of the stain of convictism. Inseparable from this process was the attainment of self-government for the State and a new name.
