It's a stretch of water separating Tasmania from the south of the Australian mainland, specifically the state of Victoria. Named after George Bass when he and Matthew Flinders passed through it while circumnavigating Van Diemen's Land (now named Tasmania).

Bass Strait, channel separating Victoria, Australia, from the island of Tasmania on the south. Its maximum width is 150 miles (240 km), its depth is 180240 feet (5070 m). King Island and the Indian Ocean lie at its western extremity, and the Furneaux Group is at its eastern end. Banks Strait is the southeastern opening to the Tasman Sea. Another small group, the Hunter Islands, is located off the northwestern tip of Tasmania. The strait was named in 1798 by the English navigator Matthew Flinders for the surgeon-explorer George Bass.
