I had the pleasure of traveling to the Tarkine area of Northwest Tasmania recently, one of the great temperate wilderness areas of the world. #tarkine #northwesttasmania #northerntasmania #tasmaniasnorthernexposure #instatasmania #tasmaniagram #tasmania #discovertasmania #cradlecoasttasmania #wilderness_aus #earthfocus #earthofficial #amazingearthofficial #thevisionaryhub #thevisualcollective #distinct_artworks #welivetoexplore #thedailyadventurer #travelling_the_blue_planet #theglobewanderer #colors_of_day #rainforest #mthrworldnewcomers #capitallocation #ingenioustones

Now I don't do #landscapephotography in #portrait style that much but at this point in Sarah Anne Rocks portrait was the way to go.

Thanks for having us Tasmania. We will be back. 7 weeks has flown past and now onto the next adventure in our trip.

Autumn sun strikes the sheer flanks of Mt Geryon in this glorious image captured by @ffourie from The Acropolis. Part of the Du Cane Range in the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, these breathtaking peaks of ancient jurassic dolerite are deep within the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. At this time of year, they are changing colour thanks to the Deciduous beech, or 'fagus'. Native to Tassie, and @Australia's only cold-climate deciduous tree, the leaves of the fagus have started their transition through a spectacular range of autumn colours, from rust red through to brilliant gold. This annual display only enhances the already spectacular scenery. Can you see them? Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Francois.

Tasmania food and wine conservatory A man who loved traveling and European architecture so much was inspired to build a conservatory in his home in Sassafras Tasmania. He wanted a beautiful building to house his piano. Now this building has been turned into a food and wine conservatory serving up exquisite platters of cheese, meat, and dips among other things. Plus, the piano still sits in the corner - enjoying it’s home! #discovertasmania

Wildflower and Barn Bluff, Cradle Mountain National Park, Tasmania

Such a gorgeous place 😍⛰⛰.. #mytasmania #tasmaniagram #tasmanianmade #discovertasmania #tasmaniasnorthwest #hikingadventures #instaholiday #hikinglove #mountainshike #gorgeousplace #worldclass #awesometasmania #travellife #traveltheworld

This is a video I captured of the stars and aurora over Dove Lake at Cradle Mountain. I spent most of the night staring up at the sky (I believe it was about 2am when the cold finally soaked through to my bones and I decided to pack up and hit the road). Oh, and this was one of the only times I've ever heard the sound of silence. I was actually trying my hardest to hear something, but there was nothing. No wind, no insects, no planes overhead. Just complete and utter silence. It was fascinating and is something I really want to experience again, so I think I'll be heading back there as soon as I can. #milkyway #milkywaychasers #galaxy #australia #aurora #southernlights #timelapse #timelapse #longexposure #discovertasmania #StargazingABC #stars #astrophotography #tassie #tasmania #cradlemountain #nightsky #downunder #auroraaustralis #nightskies #reflection #mirror #canon #canonaustralia #ausgeo #natgeo #nature_aus #mirror #dovelake #nightshooterz

Sipping the coffee, eating the cake, closing my eyes and pretending this former greenhouse is actually, my house 😍 Seriously, if I've ever seen an eatery that's Pinterest worthy - this is it! Stocking 100% Tassie produce, the menu at Tasmanian Food & Wine Conservatory changes daily to take advantage of the freshest and best(est?!) local produce our state has to offer ✔️👏 Now all that's left to do is pop this little bebè out so I can come back and smash some cab sav and one of those soft cheese and salami smorgasbords these guys are Instafamous for! 😏🧀🍷 #PlattersAPlenty #ATassieAffair #Tasmania #InteriorDesign #TasmanianFoodAndWineConservatory #Cafe #Providore #Food #Wine #Cheese #ButFirstCoffee #Tassie #DiscoverTasmania #InstaTassie #Travel #TassieStyle #Tasmaniagram #InteriorInspo

Guide falls located approximately 20 mins from Burnie on the north coast of Tasmania A very overcast day with a lot of rain about and i was getting ready to pack up before taking this shot, Pretty happy with how it turned out in the end Nikon D810 Tamron 15-30mm Lee filters CPL and 6 stop 20 sec exposure #longexposure #longexposure_shots #longexposurephotography #longexposhots #nikon #nikonaustralia #wideangle #waterfall #waterfalls #tasmania #waterfallsfordays #scenery #capture #landscape #landscapephotography #landscape_lovers #landscape_captures #landscapelovers #photooftheday #instagood #earthpics #nature #naturephotography #amazing_captures #discovertasmania #Super_photolongexpo #exploreaustralia #adventure #photography

Boardwalks and battle scars....If trees could talk, we wonder what this distinguished old fellow would have to say? It's Day 3 of the Overland Track, and @lachlan.gregory is en-route from Lake Windermere to Pelion Plains. This section of the Overland follows the 1898 horse trail built to transport miners from Tassie's eastern towns to service the booming mine industry on the West Coast. (Perhaps that's the story behind the scar?) After the day's walking, you get to pitch your tent and marvel at the jagged silhouette of Mount Oakleigh and the super-sized wombats grazing in the Buttongrass plains, or spend the evening at the recently refurbished Pelion Hut. Either way, restorative rest is needed! Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Lachlan.

Welcome home! This magic little spot is New Pelion Hut, the largest of 6 public huts tucked away along the Overland Track in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Located about half-way along the 65km Track, New Pelion is the ideal stopping point for bushwalkers looking to take on some of the stunning side-trips off of the main track, including Mount Oakleigh, Mounts Pelion East and West, and Tassie's highest peak, Mount Ossa. Or if you're just looking for a day to catch your breath; pull up a chair, kick off your boots and take in these views over the stunning alpine landscapes of our Cradle Mountain - Lake St Clair National Park. See you soon? Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, @hevs_8!

Made it to my big turning point: Stanley! This moment is rewarding in so many ways - check out the mad view! @tasmania 💙🙌 @lornajaneactive @nutcasehelmets #tassiestyle #bestlifeintheworld #longboard #skateboard #rollsrolls #bucketlist #yolo #stanley #tasmania #nature #beach #travel #adventure #wanderlust #thenut #activeliving #vans #ilovemybrain

Nature overload on the #overlandtrack last week. How lucky are we to live in such a beautiful country! #tasmania @tasmaniaparks

Forever chasing waterfalls. This one is Bridal Veil Falls in @tasmaniasnorthwest during dry season, still impressive. Can't say the same about the waterfalls in Sydney, barely any water falling these days 😁😁 . . #tasmania #tassie #tasmaniagram #tassiestyle #instatassie #discovertasmania #seeaustralia #discoveraustralia #instatravel #travelgram #bestdiscovery #wanderlust #theglobewanderer #bestvacations #beautifuldestinations #worldcaptures #wonderful_places #wonderfulworld #nature #naturelovers #landscape #landscape_lovers #fantastic_earth #instapassport #passionpassport #discover_vacations #places_wow #hiking #waterfall #longexposure @wearetravelgirls

Reposting @tasmanianexpeditions: Day 1 - the start of the Overland Track! We begin our trek at Waldheim Chalet, which provides an insight into the early history of the Cradle Mountain area and the people who played a pivotal role in the establishment of the Cradle Mountain - Lake St Clair National Park. #travel #instatravel #travelgram #wanderlust #ilovetravel #travelblogger #traveldeeper #travelling #traveltheworld #igtravel #travelblog #instago #travelpics #travelphoto #mytravelgram #travelphotography #tagsta #nature #trekking #hiking #camping #austtravellermag @austtraveller @theplanetd @Australia #SeeAustralia #discoveraustralia @Tasmania #DiscoverTasmania #TassieStyle

Just one of the many paths to adventure dotted across Tassie....We love this shot from @_grahamk_ of the boardwalk near Pencil Pine Creek in the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. There's something strangely comforting about wandering the tracks and boardwalks through the World Heritage-listed rainforest near Cradle Mountain. Perhaps it's the silence and solitude? Or the soothing and sweet-smelling vertical carpets of green? Or the promise of encountering one of the shy and incredibly cute furry critters that call this ancient wilderness home. Whatever your motivation, we're convinced this place will leave a lasting impression. So what are you waiting for?... Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Graham.
