Cape Raoul Lookout

Cape Raoul is the third of the Three Capes Track capes, and as I wrote about previously, is a little separate from the two that you visit on the official Three Capes Track. Visiting Cape Raoul involves some extra time and transport. For those short on time, it is well worth the effort to just...Read More

Tessellated Pavement Sunrise

A good Tessellated Pavement sunrise shot is a must for any photographer visiting Tasmania. Over the past 12 months I’ve run a few private tours for one or two guests at a time, and next March I will be running my first small group workshop in the area.   The Tessellated Pavements is a classic,...Read More

24 hours on the Three Capes Track

The Three Capes Track is now one of Tasmania’s most popular multi day hikes. The official hike involves booking your dates well in advance, catching one of the Pennicott boats to a remote starting point, and hiking for 3-4 days out to Cape Pillar and back over Mt Fortescue to Cape Hauy, finishing at Fortescue...Read More

Waterfall Bay

Waterfall Bay in all its glory! Spring 2022 was quite cool and wet across Tasmania and I made the most of the conditions to shoot out to Waterfall Bay on the Tasman Peninsula to see this seasonal waterfall at its best. It is seasonal in that it only flows after heavy rain, and can be...Read More

Cape Raoul – The Forgotten Cape

The Three Capes Track is now one of the most popular walks in Tasmania, as guests embark on a multi day walk through the Tasman National Park marveling at stunningly tall dolerite cliffs as they traverse coastal heathland from Port Arthur to Cape Pillar and Cape Hauy. It sounds like a rather wonderful experience, however,...Read More

Fossil Island

I took advantage of stunning clear skies last week to shoot the stars above Eaglehawk Neck. At dusk I visited Fossil Island near the Tasman Arch, and caught some nice pink in the eastern sky as the waves crashed around me. Very atmospheric 🙂 Visiting Fossil Island requires wading across from the car park –...Read More
Remarkable Cave Tasman Peninsula

Remarkable Cave

The Remarkable Cave is one of the many fascinating geological highlights on the Tasman Peninsula. Located at the Maignon Bay Lookout, it is a very short walk to view the cave, which on exactly the right angle looks a lot like the map of Tasmania! The sign in the car park says 15 mins but...Read More

Tasman Peninsula Blowhole

The Tasman Peninsula Blowhole is a nice little attraction at the entrance to the Tasman Peninsula just after you cross Eaglehawk Neck. As well as the blowhole itself, there is a short walk to a lookout, and further on to the Devils Kitchen and Tasman Arch. The whole area contains some pretty interesting geology and...Read More

Sunrise Tessellated Pavement

It’s hardly the world’s best kept secret so I don’t think I am letting any cats out of any bags by saying this, but the Tessellated Pavement really is a great spot for photographing the sunrise! I have been re-visiting a few locations with my new Pentax 15-30mm and the accompanying monster Nisi filter kit...Read More

Sunrise Photos: Tessellated Pavement Tasmania

I took an early morning drive today to the Tessellated Pavement Tasmania which is one of my favourite spot for sunrises. I have been meaning to re-shoot the pavements for a long time and the forecast overnight was for clear skies with showers developing during the day which to me meant the perfect combination for...Read More
