The East Coast, Midlands and Tasman Peninsula are a photographer’s dream, with the sparkling beaches Bay of Fires and Wineglass Bay, the pink granite ‘Hazards’ at Freycinet, the splendid panoramas at Douglas Apsley, Mt William, and Freycinet National Parks, the haunting Port Arthur Historic Site, and the charming towns of Campbell Town, Ross, Oatlands, and Richmond.
West, North West & Cradle Valley are rich in majestic forests and wild landscapes, with a vast amount of this region being World Heritage protected area. Natural wonders like the Nut in Stanley, and the majestic Tarkine Widlerness are well worth a mention, as is the iconic mountainscape of Cradle Mountain – one of Tasmania’s most visited attractions.

Hobart & the South West are where city meets wilderness, all within an hours’ drive! Hobart is nestled under Mt Wellington, which offer wonderful panoramic views of the city.

South west of Hobart is a world of extensive and serene waterways, wild coastlines and boutique vineyards where you can visit the Hastings Caves and Thermal Springs, take the ferry over to Bruny Island, so take a forest drive through the majestic Mt Field and Hartz Mountains National Parks.
