Narcissus Hut is the last hut on Tasmania’s Overland Track. Most walkers stay the last night at Windy Ridge, however, and use Narcissus Hut as a shelter in inclement weather when waiting for the ferry ride back to Cynthia Bay.
On my last trip down the Overland Track in May, I stayed one night at Narcissus Hut, with the aim of capturing a nice sunset and/or sunrise over the lake, and perhaps even a shot of the stars above Mt Olympus… Read more →
An interesting conversation during a recent photography workshop leads me to this article today – about post processing waterfalls for an authentic, rather than “fake” image. We were at Nelson Falls and the conditions were challenging as there was a lot of white water on the waterfall as well as a lot of dark shade in the surrounding forest… Read more →
Leeawuleena – or “Sleeping Waters” is the aboriginal name for Lake St Clair. Here is a selection of dawn shots taken on the lakes edge. Utterly peaceful and serene.

A beautiful “Wilderness Tasmania” shoot – evening atop Mt Rufus in central Tasmania. The peak is above 1400m high, but the conditions were calm and serene for this visit earlier in the year. This is the view south over the King William Range… Read more →
Welcome to Part 5 of my best Tassie Photography locations. I have to admit being somewhat torn here, not being able to decide whether one of Cradle Mt/Dove Lake or the Lake St Clair area should get a stand alone gong or not… Since they are part of the same national park (don’t worry that it takes 5 or 6 days to walk from one to the other!) I have decided to list them both together… Read more →
The Labyrinth Tasmania is a maze of tarns, lakes and fantastically named mountains in the heart of Tasmania’s wilderness. Access is via Lake St Clair and Pine Valley. In order to save 6 hours of walking time it is not a bad idea to catch the Lake St Clair ferry service which will run you across the lake to Narcissus… Read more →
