Happy Friday 💚 What adventures do you have planned for the weekend? I am hoping for a quiet one with some much needed chill and of course great food! Let me know what you are getting up to in the comments! 😊

Soaking up the scenery under a stunning Spring sky with @mingtse1976 - simply sensational stuff!...Ahem. But seriously, this has to be one of Tassie's most iconic views: Wineglass Bay and the Freycinet Peninsula from atop Mount Amos. Whilst the climb to the top of Amos is generally reserved for the fit and agile, the 1.5-hour return trek to Wineglass Bay lookout along a hand-crafted track is much more achievable and equally as spectacular. Those with the luxury of time and seeking more adventure can continue down to Wineglass Bay Beach and return via the circuit to Hazards Beach. And if you're in the mood for absolutely no exertion whatsoever, there's always Richardsons Beach or Honeymoon Bay. Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Matt.

If you're afraid of heights look away now 😯 This is The Moai near beautiful Fortescue Bay and is quite the challenge for climbers to summit. @chrisarvs made it to the top and shared this with us, cheers! #tasmanpeninsula #discovertasmania #seeaustralia #hobartandbeyond #rockclimbing

Not a bad way to spend our last couple of days in @tasmania ☀️👌🏻

Hold on to your hats! - Have you even seen so much blue?... Clearly @cheekztagram visited Little Blue Lake in @northerntasmania on one of Tassie's spectacularly clear days, and was fortunate to witness to this spellbinding scene. Located between the communities of Derby and Gladstone, Little Blue Lake is a natural phenomenon resulting from the pioneering mining days of South Mount Cameron and the surrounding areas of the Far North East of Tasmania. Originally a mine hole, the lake reflects a vivid aqua blue from the minerals in its base. Now popular with locals for waterskiing, swimming is, nevertheless, not recommended due to the high mineral content in the water. It's picture perfect, Kristine - thanks for tagging #discovertasmania.

Guide Falls, West Ridgley, Tasmania . Directions: (From Burnie) Travel south along the Ridgley Highway until you reach West Ridgley Road. After 2.3km reach the signposted Guide Falls park and reach the waterfall after a short 5minute walk! (1.5hours from Launceston) . Highlights: A very easy access waterfall of a fairly large scale, with lovely riverflow downstream. There is also the St George and Sanderson Falls which are close by but more elusive. ************************************************* #australiagram #focusaustralia #opentheworld #beautifuldestinations #tasmaniagram #discovertasmania #cradlecoasttasmania #cruising_australia #ausfeels #ig_australia #australia #awesomeglobe #seeaustralia #awesomeearth #tasmania #wow_australia2016 #fantastic_earth #aussiephotos #cruising_australia #socialifeaustralia #타즈매니아 #visualsgang #호주 #discoverglobe #exploringaustralia #waterfall #australia_shotz #thathiddengem #shotoncanon #longexposure_shots

Raising a flower to this beautiful Tasmanian Icon 🌻🌼🌻 . Having only the completed the simple Wineglass Bay Lookout walk on my previous visit, Mt Amos was definitely beckoning me this time... ************************************************** Location: Mt Amos Summit, (Over Wineglass Bay) Freycinet National Park, Tasmania . Directions: Travel towards Bicheno (from Hobart) along the Tasman Highway and roughly 10km before Bicheno, take the Coles Bay Road turnoff down to Wineglass Bay. The Mt Amos hike is signposted for a 3-5 hour return hike of relative difficulty of uphill ascent and rock scrambling (of which we saw many people turn around half way) and shouldn't be attempted on a wet day. Although. Much tougher than the Wineglass Bay Lookout hike, the rewards are much more vast, and amazing views await you. . Highlights: Amazing views from the summit of Wineglass Bay, a more difficult hike to those who need a bit of a challenge, and amazing open views of Coles Bay and surrounds behind you as you climb up Mt Amos! *************************************************** #australiagram #focusaustralia #opentheworld #beautifuldestinations #tasmaniagram #discovertasmania #lookout #cruising_australia #ausfeels #ig_australia #australia #awesomeglobe #seeaustralia #awesomeearth #tasmania #wow_australia2016 #fantastic_earth #aussiephotos #cruising_australia #socialifeaustralia #타즈매니아 #visualsgang #호주 #discoverglobe #exploringaustralia #clicktasmania #australia_shotz #thathiddengem #shotoncanon #beach

I love when the interior of a winery catches me by surprise like at Swinging Doors Winery in the Tamar Valley. I'm calling this style 'Rustic Hipster.'

Bruny to do list: Soak in the hot tub and enjoy the tranquility of our private cottage @hundredacrehideaway Checked ✔️☺️ #leialaurengoestotassie #discovertasmania #seeaustralia

The mighty fine beach of Crescent Bay on Tasmania's Tasman Peninsula.

Flying in a small plane over Tasmania's south west wilderness you'll be wondering if you're even still in Australia 😍 This is Louisa Bay and Louisa River, which you'll find along the rugged South Coast Track.

Bit of a speccy view #alumcliffs #discovertasmania #adventures

Spent last night camped out way above the clouds 🙌🏻 A couple of bottles of wine, a good fire and a movie to top it all off, my idea of a pretty perfect night 👌🏻🚐❤️

After an absolutely hectic weekend it does my soul good to reflect on some of the awesome things I've done this year. Can't beat a beautiful serene #sunrise from the deck at Retakunna on day 4 of the #threecapestrack #tasmania #discovertasmania #hobartandbeyond #australia #canonaustralia #5dsr #girlswhohikewithcameras #takemeback #

#Tassie, you can be a teensy bit feral sometimes, but you did real good. 💜 Radsticks 📷 @rossgib (go check out his mad snapping skills). #TourDeMo #matesonbikes

Everyone talks about how crystal clear the water is at the Bay of Fires is... well here it is 🌊 What a stunning shot thanks to @stimages 🌊 The “Bay of Fires” in Tasmania’s north-east is a stunning stretch of pristine coastline littered with granite boulders, covered in a distinctive orange lichen ⛱ In terms of natural beauty and charm... it's pretty unique and we think one of the most stunning places on the planet 🌏 #tasmania #tassie #tassiepics #instatassie #instatasmania #clicktasmania #seeaustralia #hobartandbeyond #discoveraustralia #discovertasmania #australia #australiagram #nakedplanet #bayoffires #earth_shotz #earthpix #earthoffical #eastcoastdrive #eastcoasttasmania #amazingtasmania #ig_captures #igpodium #majestic_earth #master_gallery

It's easy to see why the #stanleytasmania region is dairy country, just look at that lush green!

Thank goodness the weather cleared up enough for me to take my classic tourist photo next to cradle mountain! #discovertasmania

It’s time to let your imagination run wild with @jilliansaddington and a visit to the Village of Lower Crackpot and Tasmazia in @tasmaniasnorthwest. Get lost (and found again) in the Great Maze - one of the world's largest botanical mazes, or the aptly named Confusion Maze, or test your co-ordination on the Balance Maze. Built on a former dairy farm, which was later converted to lavender, the property is also a working lavender farm which you can see in full flower during the month of January. And to top it off, this amazing complex of whimsy is located in the rural community known as Promised Land. Who’s ready to unleash their inner child?… Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Jillian.

This is how we spent a lot of our time on our hike. It was often extremely windy with enormous drops to the ocean below. This was the safest way to not topple over the edge while we enjoyed the views! #hiking #outdoors #threecapestrack #tasmania #australia #discovertasmania #seeaustralia #ocean #rocks #cliff #coast #ilovenature #tasmania #naturelovers #lifeofadventure
