Launceston and North

By Discover Tasmania | Tasmania's north is a feast of historic streetscapes and heritage estates, rich farmland, premier cool-climate wines, fresh produce and a haven for designers and craft makers eager to talk about their work.

A spirit of wonder, a spirit of strength, and a spirit of adventure. ---------------------------------- #localartist #artist #photography #photographer #photoshoot #model #landscape #landscapephotography #canon #canon1100d #canon📸 #canonphotographer #canonphotography #launceston #launcestonphotographer #launcestonartist #mathewgroomphotography #discovertasmania #hollybank

Yesterday's adventure saw me venturing through an abandoned railway tunnel in the North East of Tasmania... definately not one for the claustraphobic! 🌏 / / #travel #exploring #adventure #tunnel #abandoned #railway #train #track #Tasmania #Australia #nature #claustraphobia #echo #discoverTasmania

A pretty special capture of the Low Head lighthouse and the core of the Milky Way by @milopiapab. At the turn of the 19th century when a sail was sighted at dusk, a fire was lit and kept burning all night to keep the vessel in touch with the port. After a review of pilotage in 1827 it was resolved to build a lighthouse at Low Head. The tower was built in 1833. It was constructed of local rubble with a coat of stucco to make the structure durable and to provide a worthwhile landmark. The crown was built of freestone from Launceston. This first light was known as the 'Georgetown Station'. It is Australia's third and Tasmania's second lighthouse built. #tasmania #instatasmania #tassie #tassiepics #tasmaniagram #lowhead #lighthouse #milkyway #hobartandbeyond #clicktasmania #seeaustralia #discoveraustralia #discovertasmania #exploretasmania #exploreaustralia #amazingtasmania #amazingaustralia #australia #getlostnow #gosomewhere

Happy first day of spring friends! #discoverwesttamar #discovertasmania

"The trek in greeted me with a rainbow... on the way back I was chased away with a thunder storm." A brilliant capture from the Tamar Island wetlands by @lifeinfocusphotography. Located just 10 minutes from Launceston, the Tamar Island Wetlands is a unique wetlands reserve with a 2km wheelchair-friendly boardwalk running through it, strategically positioned so you can ogle the resident birds. The island itself also has BBQs and an elevated bird hive 😃 #instatasmania #tasmania #tassie #tassiepics #tasmaniagram #tamarvalley #hobartandbeyond #clicktasmania #seetasmania #discovertasmania #discoveraustralia #exploretasmania #exploreaustralia #amazingtasmania #amazingaustralia #australia #gosomewhere #getlostnow

The vibrant turquoise waters of Little Blue Lake in the dappled light of a winter afternoon in @NorthernTasmania. Located just metres off the main road between Derby and Gladstone in Tassie's far north east corner, the lake is a phenomenon that has resulted from the area's pioneering tin mining days. It reflects a vivid aqua blue from the minerals that occur in its base and is a must visit for those in the wukalina / Mount William National Park region. Though the miners have long since packed their bags, the lake is now a popular spot with locals and visitors alike, and well worth the stop on any Northern roadtrip. Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, @micahlambeaux! #LittleBlueLake #Tasmania #SeeAustralia

A very picturesque Bradys lookout by @lovethywalrus who says: "Even with my own eyes I struggled to distinguish this scene between reality and a handcrafted painted masterpiece as the late afternoon sun streamed through. The Tamar Valley is a charming region of northern Tassie, and also my childhood home." Thanks Paul 😃 Bradys Lookout offers beautiful views over the Tamar River and surrounding areas. There are excellent, fully accessible toilet and picnic facilities, including sheltered BBQs and a number of picnic tables. The paths to the lookouts have good surface material and width, although wheelchair users may require assistance due to the moderate gradient. #tasmania #tasmaniagram #tassie #tassiepics #instatasmania #bradyslookout #tamarvalley #clicktasmania #seeaustralia #hobartandbeyond #discovertasmania #discoveraustralia #exploretasmania #exploreaustralia #amazingtasmania #amazingaustralia #australia #gosomewhere #getlostnow

"What? Oh, do I have something in my teef?..." This shot of a snacking Bennetts wallaby taken by @simply.travel in Launceston's Cataract Gorge Reserve really made us smile! The unique location of the gorge - only 15 minutes' walk from the Launceston CBD - makes it a cherished and popular attraction for locals and visitors alike. Aside from it's incredibly cute, furry and friendly locals, the reserve features an extensive network of walking tracks and pathways, a swimming pool, a restaurant and cafe, and the longest single-span chairlift in the southern hemisphere. It's the perfect place to while away a couple of hours - or indeed a whole day - in one of the world's most unique urban settings. Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania!

A celestial light show framed above the Grindelwald Chapel in @northerntasmania with @lifeinfocusphotography. Located 15 minutes' drive north of the city of Launceston, the village of Grindelwald was established in the 1980s as a unique residential development. All the houses in Grindelwald have been built in Swiss style, with wide eaves, flowerboxes, window shutters and balconies. The settlement is fringed with glassy lakes and views of the Tamar Valley, and features an expansive family-friendly resort with an activity list as long as the Alps! It's a little bit of Europe in northern Tasmania that delights local and visitors alike. Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Jono.

Despite the crazy weather, Tasmania still managed to whip up a hidden gem for me!

Great view down the Tamar River, Tasmania. #northerntasmania #discoverwesttamar #discovertasmania

I'm halfway through one of the best road trips I've ever experienced with @s4soundproduction, weaving our way through Tasmania in a campervan that smells faintly of foot at the worst of times and delicious bacon at the best of times. I'm actually awestruck at the terrain in this place. It's like Australia and New Zealand had a baby and annexed it to the south of the world. #discovertasmania

Misty morning on the Tamar River. #discovertasmania #discoverwesttamar #northerntasmania

More amazing coastline that I've never seen before in @NorthernTasmania. This is #lowheadlighthouse from a 🚁's perspective. So much winter lushness 🌳😍👌🏼✨ #TasmanianHelicopters #ChoiceHotelsAP #ChoiceTravelGrammer2016

Another amazing sky this morning - very grateful to be able to breathe this beauty in so often! #michfrost #sunrise

Get off the beaten track in Tassie and you're bound to find scenes like this. Welcome to the Great Western Tiers in @northerntasmania, and the remote Hidden Falls, photographed here by @ljdphotos. The Great Western Tiers are a collection of mountainous bluffs that form the northern edge of Tassie's legendary Central Plateau. Part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, they're most centrally accessed from Deloraine - a delightful riverside town with an historic streetscape classified by the National Trust and home to @Australia's largest annual craft fair. So what are you waiting for? Lace up your boots, load up your day-pack and take your imagination on a day trip to remember. Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Laurie.

Time to take to the skies over Narawntapu National Park and Badger Head in @northerntasmania with @milesgray88. Known as the 'Serengeti of Tasmania' due to the proliferation of native animals that graze in the park, Narawntapu includes an historic farm, a complex of inlets, small islands, headlands, wetlands, dunes and lagoons, all with an amazing variety of plants and animals. At dusk and dawn, this place is guaranteed wombat, kangaroo and wallaby-spotting territory! Narawntapu is about 30 minutes' drive from either Devonport or Launceston, or your can stay close by at one of the coastal communities such as Port Sorell or Greens Beach. Oh, and as you can see, the beaches are all yours! Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Miles.

What a perfect day on the pontoon out the front of our hotel #blessed #view #discovertasmania #discoverlaunceston #rosevears #discovereosevears #destinationrosevears #relax #tasmaniawhyweloveit

Little bit of a long exposure down in Deloraine, Tasmania. Was looking through my phone and found this picture of the Meander River in high flow floating around that seems to have been missed somehow. Always pretty speccy when there's this much water flowing over the weir, the little red building (pumphouse?) makes for quite a pretty subject. #deloraine #meanderriver #weir #water #longexposure #tassie#tasmania #tassiepics #tasmaniagram #northwesttasmania #discovertasmania #instatassie #seetasmania #exploretasmania #exploreaustralia #australiagram #hellobluey #loves_longexposure #longexpohunter #amazing_longexpo #iso100 #10stop #lazyshutters #igmasters #beautifuldestinations#wow_australia2016 #ig_exquisite #ig_dynamic #focusaustralia
