This walk is a must AND take you swimmers! 11kms about 5hours or longer if you take a swim or picnic lunch – or like me who stops and takes a lot of photos. It is one of the most well set out and well maintained natural tracks I have seen! Brave to Tasmania’s government!!! There are quite a few ‘stairs’ through Mount Amos & Mount Mayson to … Continue reading Wineglass Bay & Hazards Beach Circuit Walk
Ok, my images will not stand up to the thousands of amazing images taken from the air. THAT is how you will see Wineglass Bay’s glorious beauty. A perfectly crescent shaped beach filled with royal blue waters edged with fine white sand. surrounded by hills – or knuckles as they say – it makes a perfect picture postcard image.

When you arrive at a location, your first impression always depends on the weather and time of day, then the ‘feel’ of the place. Friendly … Continue reading Friendly Beaches – Intimate -Cosy
Moulting Lagoon is a BIG lagoon and sits on the edge of Freycinet National Park filled with wildlife. Black swans, lots of birds (which I don’t know their names), little soldier crabs in the sand….
