Religion in Southern Tasmania

Continuing the theme of religious geography with this map of non-Trinitarian Christian groups in Southern Tasmania. Note the even geographical spread of the Jehovah Witnesses (red) compared to the two more central Mormon locations (blue). Of the two it seems the Jehovah Witnesses reach deeper into regional areas and past the infamous 'flanelette curtain.' Perhaps the Mormons are pursuing a more centralised strategy.

Then this is a map of the other major religions; Islam (green) and Buddhism (red) as well as the Hobart Synagogue (blue) and the brand new Baha'i Centre.
