As a photographer who lives in Tasmania, I’m fortunate to live in a place that has beautiful scenery to capture. Here are the places that make up my Tasmania, the amazing spots that inspire me close to home.
1-Bridestowe Lavender – Bridestowe Lavender Estate, Nabowla TAS
I photographed the sunset at Bridestowe Lavender Estate. The estate is an amazing landscape to visit any time of the year but the best time for the stunning lavender in blossom is late December or early January.
2-Launceston in autumn
A storm had just passed Launceston shortly before sunset. The sun was behind me, illuminating the tree and its autumn leaves and creating a small rainbow in the distance.
A very popular destination on Tasmania’s stunning East Coast, Binalong Bay is a stunning spot for sure. The red lichen-covered rocks and white sand combined with pristine blue water is something any visitor should see.
Tasmania’s Highlands are easy to get to by car from several directions. I love it in winter. When the snow settles it can turn the scenery into a magical wonderland.
Arthurs Lake in the Central Highlands is renowned for trout fishing but the area is equally attractive to keen photographers. It’s such a peaceful calm sunrise this particular morning.
While Tasmania doesn’t have many high mountains, Ben Lomond is a great subject to photograph. Ben Lomond is 1200m high and has a central massif. I snapped this scene just after sunset.
A 60-minute walk from the Dove Lake Carpark via Marion’s Lookout gives you the higher view of the Famous Cradle Peaks. It looks stunning at the very end of winter with the last remnants of snow.
My favourite image of Cradle Mountain was captured from Marion’s Lookout. I love it so much as its such a natural image and taken at the time of day non-photographers can relate to. Not often you get clear skies and light like it at Cradle.
6-East Coast Tasmania
One of my favourite things about Tasmania’s East Coast are the pelicans. There are so many in the area and each pelican seems to have their own personality….just like my mate Percival pictured!
St Marys is a small township at the foot of an impressive rocky outcrop, St Patrick’s Head, located 30km north of Bicheno in Tasmania’s north east. There was a little bit of fog in the forest on my return from a sunrise shoot down the East Coast.
Situated in the Mt Field National Park (64km north west of Hobart), the walk to Horseshoe Falls is one of the best short walks I have experienced. Russell and Horseshoe Falls (pictured) are the main highlights.
8-North West Coast Aurora
Mt Roland is situated between Sheffield and Cradle Mountain. I call it the “forgotten rock”. I tried my best to bring it to life under the Aurora Australis. We are so lucky to get amazing views of the Aurora in Tasmania.
9-Old Pier Beach, Bridport
The Midlands region, between Launceston and Hobart, is a vast open and a flat area with surrounding hills. It’s my special place to explore before a storm.
Liffey Falls is one of Tasmania’s prettiest waterfalls. It’s located in a cool rainforest among myrtle, sassafras and leatherwood. Located near Mole Creek, the waterfall is stunning anytime of the year. Both images were captured in spring.
This is the view of Courts Island from the South Bruny National Park on Bruny Island at sunset.
13- Sisters Beach, North West Coast
I had one of the most remarkable afternoons ever behind a camera at Sisters Beach. I shared this moment with two great friends and fellow landscape photographers Cam Wilson and Aaron Jones.
