♡ Sunsets wow ❤ Tassie showing off 😀 📍 Strahan, Tasmania, Australia @tasmania @australia @tasmaniagram
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.
Bonnet Island, Macquarie Harbour, Strahan. Brilliant day, not a drop of rain in a place that has rain 300 days a year. #discovertasmania #seetasmania #adventuretasmania #westcoasttasmania #wilderness #wildrivers #getoutthere
#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.
Making tracks with @lisaflanno for a wilderness adventure like no other - aboard the West Coast Wilderness Railway (@wcwrtas). The world's steepest steam-operated railway was originally built to move copper ore for the Mount Lyell Mining and Railway Company, delivering the mine's deep riches out of a massive, landlocked deposit at Queenstown to the port of Strahan, and from there, to the world. The railway features a Swiss-engineered ABT cog-and-rack system, in which a central cog under the locos engaged the teeth of a 'rack' – a third rail below. This enables the trains to drag themselves up inclines over twice as steep as normal - and there are plenty of those on Tassie's wild West Coast! Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Lisa.

A quick pic snapped between meetings in Strahan during the week.
It's going to be a beautiful day in #strahan today. #strahanvillage
Recent much-needed winter rains have resulted in some spectacular displays from Tassie's waterfalls. And Nelson Falls on the West Coast is no exception, as this snap from @simmybear shows. An easy 20-minute circuit track leads to this magical cascade from the Lyell Highway between Derwent Bridge and the historic mining town of Queenstown. It's just one of the jaw-dropping highlights encountered on a roadtrip into Tassie's Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park and the spectacular Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. We hope you had a memorable trip, Simon - thanks for tagging #discovertasmania.
Frenchman Cap from Lake Burbury in deepest west #Tasmania. Take the road less travelled and be rewarded with views like this, right from the side of the road. Head due south out of #queenstown towards the Crotty Dam. At the top of the pass look west to the ocean and east to the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. Drive along the old twisting rail line, cut through thick lush rainforest. Easily one of the best drives in Tasmania and you'll feel like you have the place to yourself. ============================================================ ============================================================= #discovertasmania #tassiepics #thisistassie #ig_australia #australiagram #exploreaustralia #exploringaustralia #amazingtasmania #thinktasmania #clicktasmania #mytassiebreak #instatasmania #westcoasttasmania

You can almost feel the silence as evening mist slowly descends over the Pieman River in @tasmaniasnorthwest in this atmospheric shot from @_emwilson_. The banks of the Pieman are home to Corinna - a remote historic mining town now eco-tourism haven set in pristine rainforest surrounded by stunning wilderness and great nature experiences. This tiny settlement sits at the southern end of the Tarkine wilderness area. Here, nature is the star, with the old-growth rainforests forming a living link with the ancient supercontinent Gondwana. Corinna was once a thriving gold mining town and is now an oasis for nature lovers and explorers seeking the ultimate wilderness experience. Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Em.
This is where #garden #gnomes go for #holidays 😂Saw this shot as we were leaving #Queenstown in #Tasmania and just had to stop and shoot it! Even at 10mm we couldn't get them all in the shot without getting the road in the shot. Nikon D7000 | Nikkor 10-24 f3.5-4.5G lens | f16 | 1/100th | 10mm | ISO 200 | Handheld
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! Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Peter! #SeeAustralia #Tasmania #GordonRiver
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.
Stunning morning view of Mt Owen today. #tasmania #thinktasmania #queenstown #discovertasmania.
There are some pretty steep sections along the West Coast Wilderness Railway. This one was captured by @mj_warland who joined us for a ride recently. Thanks so much for sharing your pics Michael and thanks for tagging #wcwrtas. We will share some more in coming days.
Foam created from the amount of water flowing over Hogarth Falls in Strahan, Tasmania created the unique motion blur during this long exposure. #Tasmania #discovertasmania #hogarthfalls #tassiepics #tasmaniagram #botanicalcreek #strahan #tassie #tas #seeaustralia #nature #travelphotography #hike #hiking #travel #igers #photooftheday #longexposure #tempraterainforest #rainforest #forest #creek #water #longexposure_shots #longexposureoftheday #river #australia #sonyimages #sonyalpha #sony1635mm
Good old Queenstown. Photo by @markbroadhead
One of Tasmania's less challenging bush walks;-) While there are plenty of adventures for those who like to pull on hiking boots and a rucksack and who don't mind wading through mud and leeches, I for one am glad that there are also some more universally accessible ways to experience Tasmania's wilderness. The short track from the Lyell Highway in to Nelson Falls can be managed by anyone, including those in wheelchairs. (I do actually quite like pulling on my boots from time to time, too...)
Iron Blow Lookout. The mine site was first discovered in early 1880's by prospectors. Initially mined for gold but had copper instead. #ironblowlookout #tassie #tasmania #australia #seeaustralia #instatravel #photooftheday #picoftheday #livefolk #mytravelgram #tasmaniagram #australiagram #vscocam #vsco #vscogood #vscophile #vscoph #vscodaily #wanderlust #ourplanetdaily #travel #travelgram #beautifuldestinations #globetrotter #wanderluster #discovertasmania #lonelyplanet
Come away with us and drift back in time through the tranquil waters of the Pieman River, deep in the forests of @TasmaniasNorthWest. Located on the southerly border of the Tarkine Forest Reserve, 'The Pieman' was named after pastry-cook Thomas Kent, who was transported to Van Diemen's Land in 1816. After a long series of offenses in the colony, Kent was sent to the Macquarie Harbour Penal Station in 1822 but subsequently escaped, only to be recaptured near the mouth of the river which now bears his nickname. Today, it is a stunning spot for the whole family to explore, touring the Western Explorer route which winds its way through these ancient forests to the tiny settlement of Corinna. Thanks for tagging #DiscoverTasmania, @LoicleGuilly!
That moment on the Railway when the King River Gorge hoves into view. We think it's one of Tasmania's great wilderness scenes, but what do you think?
Our little loco number 3 at Lynchford on a cool but clear winter morning. Winter is a brilliant time to visit, and we have half day services operating Monday to Saturday, with daily departures alternating between Strahan & Queenstown. We'd love to welcome you aboard!🚂🚂🚂

The entrance to Macquarie Harbour on Tassie's remote West Coast captured from the air by @nsstacey. Named 'Hell's Gates' by the British convicts incarcerated to the notorious and isolated Sarah Island deep within the harbour, this narrow passage leads into a body of water that is six times the size of Sydney Harbour. Gateway to the harbour and the surrounding World Heritage wilderness is the quiet fishing village of Strahan. From here you can board an eco-cruise that explores the wilderness beauty and mirror-like surfaces of the legendary Gordon River, visits Sarah Island to reveal the pain and suffering of convict life, and ventures to Macquarie Heads and Hell's Gates. Along the way, informative locals share the stories, relative triumphs and tribulations of the souls condemned to Macquarie Harbour hundreds of years ago. Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Nick.
A nice looking streaky sunset last night over Mount Roland! #tasmania #discovertasmania #instatasmania #tasmaniagram
Droving day on Robbins Island, by @menghas_back_paddock_josflint 😊 We love the amazing colour of the water. Robbins Island, with an area of 99 square km is the seventh largest island in Tassie and located just off the far northwest coast. It is separated by a highly tidal area known as Robbins Passage which, as you can see, can be crossed at low tide. Robbins Island is also home to @robbinsislandwagyu, stunning Tasmanian Wagyu, bred by the Hammond family for over 20 years. The prized cattle are grazed naturally and sustainably on lush pastures without supplements or hormones, all the while breathing the cleanest air in the world. #tasmania #discovertasmania #discoveraustralia #amazingtasmania #amazingaustralia #exploretasmania #exploreaustralia #tassie #instatasmania #tasmaniagram #tassiepics #clicktasmania #seeaustralia #australia #robbinsisland #robbinspassage #wagyu #amazng_tasmania
