Tasmania is a land of dramatic coastlines, over 1144 named rugged mountains from which to walk, tall forests and sparkling highland lakes. Over a third of the state is reserved in a network of National Parks and the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, a refuge and habitat for rare plants and animals, including survivors of the ancient southern super continent, Gondwana.
Photographers rave about it – a certain quality of the light in Tasmania. Craggy mountains loom closer, seas carve out a deeper coastline drama along wild beaches, blue sky has a wider reach The island has the cleanest air in the world, so nature’s palette shows through without the contamination of urban pollution. And for colour, nothing beats Tasmania and its four distinct seasons.
Renowned for being one of the world’s best walking destinations, it has more than 3000km of world-class walking tracks, thousands of highland lakes, hundreds of clean beaches and mountain peaks and crags.
