These are Myrtle Forest Falls, tucked away in the ancient rainforest and snow covered slopes of kunanyi / Mount Wellington this weekend captured by @tassiegrammer. With the recent snowfall, many of the waterfalls across the state have been in full flow, offering some stunning views! These little falls are just a stone's throw from Hobart - and a ten minute walk along the Myrtle Gully Track. You can walk along several different tracks to find Myrtle Gully Falls and the track is part of an extensive network of walking trails that link Hobart’s waterfront with the summit of our mountain and provide hours of exploring for the young and young-at-heart.

Would you believe this vibrant gem of a lake is hidden up in Tassie's far North East corner? These are the stunning turquoise waters of Little Blue Lake, located just metres off the main road between Derby and Gladstone in @NorthernTasmania. The lake is a phenomenon that has resulted from the pioneering mining days of South Mount Cameron and the surrounding areas. It reflects a vivid aqua blue from the minerals that occur in its base and is a must visit for those in the Mount William National Park area. It's a popular spot with locals, but due to the high mineral content, we probably don't recommend taking a dip.

The beauty of Pencil Pine Cascades, brilliantly captured yesterday in our winter wonderland by @camblakephotography. A short boardwalk stroll, this series of cascades are located on the boundary of the Tasmanian World Heritage Wilderness Area and the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. It’s just one attraction on a network of short walks around the park's entrance that feature tranquil creekside grottos, rainforest tunnels and if you’re really lucky, spontaneous wildlife encounters. It’s the perfect prelude to the drama and majesty of the main attraction – the dual peaks of Cradle Mountain!

We saw these amazing clouds forming on our drive to Cradle Mountain.

Do we really need words to explain how stunning our mornings are here? 🌞

Starting day two of the Three Capes Track and we already have some awesome views. #pointassist #adventure #adventuretravel #travel #travelgram #explore #exploreeverything #wounderlust #travelbug #amazingplace #amazingplacetovisit #australia #australiagram #instatassie #tasmanianmade #tasmania #tasmaniantravelways #discovertasmania #views #coastline #trekking #hiking #wilderness #threecapestrack #getafterit #getoutthere #tasmaniantravelways #tasmaniagram

Sunset view in Port Arthur #discovertasmania

These falls which are unnamed on Tasmaps would have to be one of my favorite places in @tasmania. Located deep in the Meander Forest, they make you feel a world away! ____________ #discovertasmania #tasmania #tasmaniagram #instatasmania #focusaustralia #ig_australia #crusing_australia #cradlecoastcaptures #northwesttasmania #amazingaustralia #exploreaustralia #wheredoyoukooee #weareexplorers #gearsupply #nikonaustralia #wanderlusting #wanderlust

Winding it's way up the banks of the River Derwent in #hobart the Tasman Highway takes a graceful line past Government House.

The pink glow of dawn painting the skies high above @Hobartandbeyond and the rocky summit of kunanyi / Mount Wellington. The Mountain, as the locals affectionately call it, is a majestic 1,269m peak that stands proudly over our Capital City. For those keen enough to make the early morning drive, you may just be rewarded with views like this, from one of the best sunrise spots in all of Southern Tassie. On clear days, as the sun breaks the horizon, the region is awash in a colourful glow, lighting up the waterways of the Derwent estuary and the far reaches of the World Heritage Wilderness Area, nearly 100 kilometres to the West. Sounds like a pretty good way to start the weekend, if you ask us! Thanks for tagging, #discovertasmania @ffourie! #Tasmania #SeeAustralia #MountWellington #Sunrise

How's this for life on the edge! @Video_compass captured this adrenaline-pumping shot during his 17 day adventure scaling the rocky walls of Federation Peak and the surrounding wilderness of Southwest National Park. This rugged and remote trail is often described as one of the most challenging Bushwalking experiences in Australia and is, for many walkers, the ultimate trekking goal. Of his adventure, Simon says, "we finally emerged onto the first step of Blade Ridge after battling it out in the jungle below. We waited many days for this day and it was a pleasure to watch it unfold..." Thanks for sharing this incredible experience with us, mate! #discovertasmania #FederationPeak #Tasmania #SeeAustralia

Anyone up for an early morning sail along the glassy waters of the Gordon River? @peterhendriephoto captured this stunning shot while exploring this pristine piece of wilderness buried deep in the ancient forests of Tassie's West Coast. Meandering through the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, the Gordon winds its way for more than 172km before passing through the wide expanse of Macquarie Harbour and on through the narrows of Hells Gates into the Southern Ocean. It's a favourite with visitors to our wild west, as they glide across Australia’s second largest harbour and down the river on an wilderness cruise that's bound to take your breath away!

The other day I shared this photo of a section of track along the West Coast Wilderness Railway on @wcwrtas and it's had quite a bit of action on their social sites, so I thought my followers might enjoy it to. Hope everyone is having a great week.

There are many things I treasure about living in this beautiful city, but sunrises and sunsets are definitely near the top of my list. The ever changing textures and colours of the clouds and sky at the beginning and end of each day never cease to amaze me. ——————————————— Canon 6D EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM F/18 ISO 100 80 seconds ——————————————— #tasmania #discovertasmania #Hobart #hobartandbeyond #seeaustralia #ig_australia #instatasmania #cruising_australia #australiagram #wonderfulworld #CanonAustralia #sunset_vision #dream_image #fs_longexpo #amazing_longexpo #ig_sunrisesunset #watchthisinstagood #exploringtheglobe #fotografdukkanim #theimaged #canon_photos #landscape_captures #longexposure #longexposureoftheday #special_shots #discoverglobe #moodygrams #meistershots #artsyheaven #sky_sultans

Do you have an individual photography location that you would love to be able to place your tripod and camera down at right now and take some pictures? Castle Rock on Flinders Island in @tasmania is one of those locations for me. I wish I was standing here right now watching the incredible sunsets that happen in this part of the world . ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ Canon 5Ds Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L II 23mm f/8 0.6secs ISO200 Lee Filters 0.9 Soft Grad ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ 📸 Prints available : http://tassiegrammer.com.au 📩 Email enquiries : enquiries@tassiegrammer.com.au ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ #discovertasmania#seeaustralia#tasmania#tasmaniagram#hobartandbeyond#exploringaustralia#exploreaustralia#australiagram#ig_australia#wow_australia2016#beautifuldestinations#worldbestshot#earthpics#fantastic_earth#igpowerclub#igphotoworld#GlobalCapture#Exploringtheglobe#bestworldpics#phenomenalshot#longexposure_shots#splendid_shotz#longexposure#main_vision#igpodium#ig_masterpiece#amazing_longexpo#earthpics#amazing_captures#longexpoelite

Golden hour light illuminating the craggy peaks of Mount Roland as captured here by @theotherwayhome from the tranquil hills of Lower Wilmot. This majestic mountain dominates the horizon in this @TasmaniasNorthWest view, standing at 1,234m over a landscape filled with classic coastal drives, food trails, stunning national parks and beautiful nature reserves. It is an area with a wealth of fascinating stories, from great museums to significant Aboriginal heritage sites, and a creative spirit that is showcased in the many art galleries, public artworks, artisan shops and markets along the picturesque North West coast.

The imposing silhouette of Barn Bluff against pastel, dusk skies as seen from the winding boardwalk of Waterfall Valley on @Tasmaniasnorthwest's iconic #OverlandTrack. The Overland is Australia’s premier alpine walk - a 65 km, six-day trek through the heart of the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park - part of the magnificent Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. It's views like these of the stunning alpine landscapes and towering mountains paired with the physical challenge of the multi-day adventure that have secured its national and international reputation as one of the great wilderness bushwalks. Are you up for the challenge? Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, @kalanrobb! #SeeAustralia #Tasmania

The soft tones of dawn lighting a winter's morning sky over the the Tessellated Pavement on Eaglehawk Neck, captured by @davidjamesphotography. This stunning region in Tassie's south is the gateway to the Tasman National Park and is famous for its spectacular coastal scenery - from the surging spouts of the Blowhole to the ancient archway of Remarkable Cave. The Pavement's geological checkerboard of rectangular, saltwater pools occurs in only a handful of spots around the world and is a must-see attraction when visiting this fascinating part of our island. While in the area, take your pick of an afternoon eco-cruise, a visit to the Port Arthur Historic Site or, for the intrepid traveller, an adventure on the multi-day Three Capes Track!

A stunning capture from Seymour at Bicheno on Tassie's east coast by @blakesalive 😀 Blake says: “Living in Tasmania, being surrounded by raw, natural beauty every day, I feel like my love of photography was inevitable! I want to capture the natural beauty the world has to offer, and beginning that journey in Tasmania, my home state, I couldn't be luckier. It's such an incredible part of the world!” Well done Blake 😃 #tasmania #tasmaniagram #tassie #tassiepics #instatasmania #discovertasmania #discoveraustralia #amazingtasmania #amazingaustralia #exploretasmania #exploreaustralia #hobartandbeyond #gosomewhere #getlostnow #clicktasmania #seeaustralia #bicheno #seymour

Driving down a new dirt road in Tassie's late afternoon light is always a delight. 😊

The vibrant beams of the Aurora Australis dancing across the southern skies over Scamander Beach. This entrancing phenomenon is the result of electrons from solar flares colliding with the upper reaches of Earth's atmosphere. While elusive and difficult to predict, the southern lights are frequently sighted across our island state, especially during the darker winter months. Like its northern cousin, the southern lights may display as a red or green static glow on the horizon or, when the solar flares are particularly strong, as dancing beams of shifting colors. However they appear, they are certainly a view we never grow tired of. Thanks for sharing this magical capture with us, @helenawisby123! #discovertasmania #AuroraAustralis #Tasmania

Early morning views of a snow-topped kunanyi / Mount Wellington standing proudly over Hobart and the shores of the Derwent River. Tassie is home to a range of wild and fascinating geology and ancient landscapes. With thirty mountain peaks higher than 1,200 metres, Tasmania is one of the most mountainous islands in the world and is @Australia's most mountainous state. It is brimming with opportunities for day-trips and multi-day hikes to take in the views from our rugged peaks with plenty of stunning, snowy vistas across the state.

A very cool pic of an abandoned tunnel at Tunnel, just outside Lilydale, thanks to @talleah_johns 😃 The tunnel is long, very long, and open to walk through... if you are game! Tasmania’s North East Rail Trail project is set to revitalise the region through the conversion of 70kms of disused rail corridor from Launceston to Scottsdale into a world-class cycling and walking track. This means that cyclists and walkers will be able to sip, savor, spend, explore and invest as they meander along 100km through some of the State’s most picturesque villages, farmland, vineyards, art galleries, cafes, farmgate experiences and much more.The North East Rail Trail will pass through the rural hamlets of Karoola, Lalla, Lilydale, Tunnel, Lebrina, Nabowla, Lietinna, Scottsdale and onto Billycock Hill. The trail also includes an 1888-constructed 840-metre-long tunnel that is the envy of rail trail managers around the world. #tasmania #tasmaniagram #tassie #tassiepics #instatasmania #tunnel #traintrack #railway #hobartandbeyond #clicktasmania #seeaustralia #discovertasmania #discoveraustralia #amazingtasmania #amazingaustralia #exploretasmania #exploreaustralia #australia #lilydale #gosomewhere #getlostnow

The @thisistassie team enjoyed a weekend of festival fun #HuonValleyMidWinterFest @williesmithscider @theappleshed this weekend. After the #HVMWF16 finished we headed down to the Huon River in Franklin. It was a perfect end to the wild weekend. We wandered along the peaceful banks of the Huon River in the heart of the Huon Valley with Georgie FitzGerald. The Huon Valley produces some of Tassie's finest fresh produce, so it’s sure to keep you satisfied on all your Southern Tassie adventures. What's your favourite Huon Valley gem?
