    HistoryThe Tasmanian Steam Navigation Company was formed in 1853 initially only operating steamers between Sydney and Hobart. It expanded operations and began operating very sucessfully on regular services across Bass Strait until the 1880s when competition from other companies began to rival it. In 1891 the TSN Company was bought out by the Union Steam Ship Company of New Zealand.
