Why is Tasmania nicknamed the Apple Isle? Is it because they grow apples? Or the geographic shape of the island?? Or is there some link with New York City??? A citable reference would be great. Norman21 (talk) 13:06, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
I found out why, and inserted a paragraph at the end of Soil. Norman21 (talk) 11:54, 1 December 2012 (UTC)
Auto writes - Thanks, Norman. I started at the top. I saw no reference to 'Apple Island' (or 'Isle'). Again thanks!.

I just noticed that Geography of Tasmania was converted into a redirect to here in mid-2013. It should clearly be its own article, if anyone wants to add it to their to-do list ... just mentioning here because the fact that it isn't a redlink may cause people to not notice it is "missing". -- Chuq(talk) 10:55, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
