hobart, tasmania:

the derwent valley

Hobart marked the end of our Tasmanian journey. It was a rather nice way to finish the trip, in the state's capital, enjoying all it had to offer. From the historic Salamanca Place, to the innovative and refreshing Museum of Old and New, we made the most of what little time had left. We visited wineries in the Derwent Valley, explored historic Battery Point and finished the day with a quick trip to Clifton Beach where Andy was able to have a quick surf before we flew home. We were both sad to leave, and were once again reminded of how incredibly stunning Australia is, and that we need to get our more and explore our own backyard. 

If you are thinking of visiting Tasmania, do it. 

I'd also like to give a quick shout out to my friend Jenna, who is originally from Hobart, and gave us such amazing tips for our trip! Thanks Jenna, you rock!

the east coast, tasmania:

Just thought I'd share a few snaps taken on our journey down the east coast of Tasmania to Hobart. As you can see, Tasmania is blessed with a pretty stunning coastline and waterways. So beautiful.

next: our final destination, Hobart.

freycinet, tasmania:

Wineglass Bay is one of the those famous Australian beaches. Like Whitehaven in Queensland and Cable Beach in Western Australia, it's a bit legendary. Wineglass Bay, along with many other stunning beaches, is located in Freycinet National Park, a couple of hours drive north of Hobart. A 30-minute uphill walk will greet you with a glimpse of  the beach, where you can walk further down to it's white sands. Unfortunately we arrived late afternoon and didn't quite have enough to time to make the return trip to the beach and back before dark. We did, however, mange to complete a couple of smaller walks, before purchasing some locally farmed oysters to snack on while watching the sunset in Coles Bay, looking directly towards 'the Hazards' mountain range. The light and landscape was spectacular and made for on of those bliss moments where everything was just perfect.

next: along the east coast.
