We'd like to turn your world upside down in the nicest possible way! Today you're gliding across glassy waters of Macquarie Harbour and the Gordon River with @gordonrivercruises - waters that can be so mirror-like, it's often hard to know which way is up! Gordon River Cruises are based in Strahan, a harbour-side village with a dark and fascinating convict past set on the edge of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area on Tassie's West Coast. Cruises depart daily and explore Macquarie Harbour - Australia's second largest natural harbour and a body of water six times the size of Sydney Harbour - and the Gordon River, one of the namesakes of the Fraklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. Magical. Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, team.

Ever have an elusive & specific shot in mind but the conditions are just never quite right..? Well I finally got to check one off my list on Sunday night, and wow am I absolutely stoked on the result!! I originally drove out to capture just the tree and milky way without any clouds around, which took quite a while of waiting for the right day with no clouds and the moon below the horizon... but imagine my surprise when I clicked off the first shot and saw the burst of colour in the corner! Was absolutely floored. ☺ Canon 6D, Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 | f/2.8, ISO3200, 30" ________________ #milkyway #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #nightphotography #aurora #auroraustralis #tasmania #northwesttasmania #instatasmania #cradlecoasttasmania #tasmaniagram #discovertasmania #ausnzlandscape #focusaustralia #amazing_longexpo #long_exposure_pics #longexpoelite #wow_australia2016 #night_shooterz #top_masters #earthexperience #fantastic_captures #lazyshutters #naturelovers #ig_astrophotography #milkywaychasers #ig_discover_australia #global_hotshotz #canonaustralia #world_bestsky

Tip-toeing through the tulips at Table Cape Tulip Farm with a 🚁 Spring has definitely sprung here in @tasmania and for the next four weeks until the 21st October the tulip farm will be open to those who want to frolic in the bulbs. This is definitetly one of the highlights on the annual calendar in and around @tasmaniasnorthwest. I think @tassiedventurer and I were a little early to visit this year but we might just have to go back again and get all of the rows in full colour from the air. Now with all of the colours of a rainbow present, I am wondering if I can call this either a tulip-bow or a drone-bow 🌈🚁🌷🤔 ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ 📸 Prints available http://tassiegrammer.com.au 📩 Email enquiries : enquiries@tassiegrammer.com.au ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ #exploringaustralia#exploreaustralia#australiagram#ig_australia#infinity_shotz#tasmania#tasmaniagram#global_hotshotz#magicpict#ig_shotz#GlobalCapture#earthpix#earthpics#tourtheplanet#marvelshots#nationalgeographic#abcmyphoto#wow_australia2016#cruising_australia#discovertasmania#ausgeo#lonelyplanet#cradlecoasttasmania#fantastic_earth#travelstoke#mytassiebreak#traveldeeper#seeaustralia#tulips#liveauthentic

Around forty per cent of Tasmania is protected in national parks and reserves, with a large part comprising the world-renowned Tasmanian World Heritage Wilderness Area. We reckon that’s worth stopping and thinking about! @steve_walters_ did exactly that on a recent visit to the Enchanted Forest within the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. Tassie's alpine, sub-alpine and temperate wilderness areas contain some of the rarest plants and animals on Earth. And the great thing is so much of it is easily accessed, and in many cases is either on your doorstep or a short drive from major centres. Whether you’re a hard-core adventurer, or your prefer a more laid-back travel style, next time you're in the middle of yet another breathtaking Tassie scene, take the time to stop and soak it in, reflect quietly and savour the moment. Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Wally.

Tail end of the Sept 3rd aurora showing up. After getting a few shots off from around the Kindred area, @mark_hicks77 and I decided it was worth a shot driving out the back of Sheffield to capture Mt Roland with the aurora in all it's glory behind. Luck was not with us, and by the time we got out there everything had died down to a faint glow. Still, nothing ventured, nothing gained! 😊 This also happens to be one of the last shots out of the Samyang before dropping it. That said, it definitely still works, the only thing wrong with it is focusing to infinity is now at the 0.7m mark, and the corners are slightly warped on full frame. Would be 100% fine on a crop sensor Canon, if anyone's after an extremely cheap fast ultra-wide for your APS-C Canon, chuck me a PM. 😊 6D, Samyang 14mm f/2.8 | f/4, ISO-16,000, 25" (I have no recollection of why I was shooting at such a high ISO 😂) #aurora #milkyway #mtroland #milkyway #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #nightphotography #tasmania #northwesttasmania #instatasmania #tasmaniagram #discovertasmania #ausnzlandscape #night_shooterz #nightimages #createcaptura #top_masters #skymasters_family #earthexperience #longexposure #longexpohunter #fantastic_captures #lazyshutters #ig_astrophotography #milkywaychasers #ig_discover_australia #loves_skyandsunset #darkskyshots #nightscape

Sunken Rock Bay, #HuonValley in #Tasmania. Not the sunrise I was chasing but stunning all the same. Shot with the nifty #Canon #G7XmkII while my #5DmkIV was doing a time lapse. #CanonAustralia

#australia #tasmania #discovertasmania #tasmaniagram #strahan #holidays ...we made it to the cute little town of Strahan on the West coast a couple of days ago. Telstra has a monopoly on the phone services so we were cut off from the outside world until we left Strahan an hour ago. We now have mobile phone access. This is one of the few images I'll be posting of Strahan. It's a beautiful place and a gateway to Tasmania's Cradle Country and the West. Population of Strahan is 660 and the locals we met and spoke to are super friendly.

This is inside the chapel of the Separate Prison. Each convict was allocated an aisle and one by one loaded into the aisles separated by a door between them. At any time each inmate could only see the minister and the two guards who watched over them. When they left the chapel they were asked to wear the facial hoods again to conceal their identity. This is the only time that the inmates were allowed to speak as they sang hymns of worship. #PortArthur #Tasmania #historicalsite #history #heritage #SeparatePrison #prison #gaol #jail #travelphotography #travel #travelblogger #SeeTAS #DiscoverTasmania #PortArthurTassie #Tassie
