Where is Tasman Sea?
The Tasman Sea is the water surface between Australia and New Zealand. It is a southwestern part of the South Pacific. The name honours the Dutch explorer Abel Tasman, who went on a voyage of discovery in 1642/1643 and also discovered New Zealand and Tasmania. Around 1770, British explorer James Cook explored the area during his first voyage of discovery.
To the Tasman Sea, the International Hydrographic Organization calculates the areas east of the Australian states of New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania. The far north Queensland is adjacent to the Coral Sea. The border of the States also serves as a Demarcation of these two seas.
The Tasman Sea is 2800 km long and up to 2000 km wide, with an area of 2,331,000 km2. It reaches its maximum depth of 5200 m in the Tasmanian Basin.
