Take a trip with me around Tasmania as we explore some of the beauty this island has to offer
Widely considered one of Australia’s iconic wilderness experiences and is located on the edge of the spectacular World Heritage-listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park in Tasmania’s. This is the perfect place to escape from the rat race and get back to nature and includes some of the most scenic walking trails catering for all levels of fitness. The most popular of these walks is the 6.5km Dove Lake circuit walk that takes you right around Dove Lake and beneath the towering spires of Cradle Mountain.
We ventured out on a day trip from Hobart to one of Tasmania's premiere island destination, Bruny Island. Bruny Island is a 362-square-kilometre island located off the south-eastern coast of Tasmania, Australia. For those who are a bit more adventurous, I highly recommend booking a wilderness cruise with Pennicott Wilderness Journeys. You will get the opportunity to cruise alongside some of Australia's highest sea cliffs, enter deep sea caves and check out the abundant coastal wildlife such as seals, dolphins, sea birds and possibly even the occasional whale depending on their migration season.
Freycinet National Park, located on the east coast of Tasmania, has a magic all of its own and is best known for the stunning beauty of Wineglass Bay. Its spectacular granite mountain range rises dramatically from a number of sheltered turquoise bays and provides a breathtaking backdrop that is never far from your view. We were a little more adventurous and decided to take on the slightly challenging 12km Wineglass Bay Loop trail so we could fully take in the beauty of this unique region
