Wilderness Tasmania: Mt Rufus

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. There are very few tracks south of here, and Mt Rufus really is one of the best walks in Tasmania in terms of familiarising yourself with the mountains of the World Heritage Area.

The hike is usually done as a circuit walk via Shadow Lake. It takes around 7 hours return. Most often done as a day walk, but wilderness photography really requires carrying some gear and being “out there” during the golden photography hours of dawn and dusk.
