Tasmania changed from six-digit local numbers to eight digits on 19 August 1996, and six-digit dialling stopped working on 18 May 1997. As this was some years ago, most contact information should now show the full eight-digit number.
But, if you only know the old area code and number, it is easy to determine what to dial:
The old area codes were (002) for southern Tasmania and the east coast, (003) for northern Tasmania and the north-east, and (004) for north-west Tasmania and the west coast.
