South Coast & Lion Rock

South Coast & Lion Rock

This months featured photographs come from Lion Rock on the South Coast of Tasmania. Our stay turned out to be on quite a squally evening on the beach, with persistent showers only allowing a brief shoot in front of the striking silhouette of Lion Rock… Read more →
Styx Valley of the Giants

Styx Valley of the Giants

The Styx Valley of the Giants is Tassie’s home to some of the biggest trees in Australia, and the tallest flowering tree in the entire world, the Eucalyptus regnans. The Styx is home to some 90+ metre giants in the Andromeda area, as well as numerous “smaller” giants at 70+ metres throughout the valley… Read more →
Hobart & Mt Wellington

Hobart & Mt Wellington

Hobart is a great city, it really is like the “Wilderness Capital of Australia”. It is situated on the Derwent River, which is a large enough port that dozens of giant Cruise Ships come by every summer, the Antarctic research boats make their home here, and even Sea Shepherd seem to have adopted Hobart as a kind of unofficial home port before tackling the Antarctic whaling fleet every summer… Read more →
Schnells Ridge, South West Tasmania

Schnells Ridge, South West Tasmania

Another trip into South west Tasmania, this time to Schnells Ridge. Scnells Ridge is located south of Mt Anne and commands fine views of the Anne Range and Lake Judd to the north, the giant Lake Pedder and Frankland Range to the west, and the jagged and remote Arthur ranges dominate the view to the south/southwest… Read more →

Tasmanian Waterfalls: Horseshoe Falls, Mt Field

Tasmanian Waterfalls: Horseshoe Falls, Mt Field

Russell Falls seems to get all the attention as one of the most famous Tasmanian waterfalls, but Horseshoe Falls a little further along the path is something of a quiet achiever and is often overlooked. This is a pity as it really is worth a visit and some would argue even more picturesque than Russell Falls… Read more →
Fagus at Tarn Shelf, Mt Field

Fagus at Tarn Shelf, Mt Field

Tasmania’s Gondwanic connection is firing at the moment, as the autumn colour returns to Australia’s only winter deciduous tree, the Fagus. Each autumn, around Anzac day, the small green leaves of the fagus, which is a Tasmanian endemic found only in the higher mountainous areas of western Tasmania, change into hues of yellow, orange and (if you’re lucky), flame red… Read more →
