Wandering: Tasmanian Wanderlust
Immersing yourself in the wild and taking a break from day-to-day life is always much needed for a happy soul. Our photographer Molly recently returned from a trip to the wilds of Tasmania, after a week of hiking, mountain climbing, swimming, picture taking and all around exploring. Known for its vast, rugged, heritage listed national parks, Tasmania is one of Australia’s jewels and a must see on every nature lovers bucket list. Here’s a round up of our fave pics from Molly’s trip and her highlights.
Freycinet National Park was a dream of blue skies, turquoise waters and the cosiest wood cabin by the bay. About 3 hours north of Hobart, phone reception drops out and it is all peace and trees.
In the center of Tasmania sits Cradle Mountain National Park, rugged rolling mountains, frosty creeks and lakes and thousands of kilometers of walking tracks make it an unforgettable experience. We hiked here for 3 days and only saw glimpses of the the magic in mountains had to offer. Must return one day.
Huon Valley in the south, gifted us with neverending forest to explore, full of huge King Billy pines and the protected Huon pines, native to Tasmania and the only place on the planet where they grow. It was a privilege to wander among the beautiful, untouched historical land.
