The Red Knoll Lookout in Tasmania’s South West National Park has to be one of the best places to visit to easily experience the grandeur of Tasmania’s rugged World Heritage Area. There is camping nearby at the Huon and Edgar campgrounds so spending a night is an easy option. This sequence of shots was taken overnight a couple of years ago. The sunset didn’t really fire, but the low light view to the western Arthurs was wonderful, as utter stillness and quiet descended over the mountains. Similarly the morning was magnificent. Mist filled the valleys as I shot a soft yellow sunrise from the buttongrass.
Of course this location is only the beginning of explorations into the South West National Park, part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Walks to Mt Anne, Lake Judd, Schnells Ridge and the Western Arthurs all begin nearby and all are significant walks – the Western Arthurs for example requiring around 1 week of your time and a very high level of fitness and self-reliance.
