cradle mountain, tasmania:

Two weeks ago, Andy and I headed down to Tasmania for an extended weekend break. We spent five days driving from Launceston, in the north, down to Hobart, taking in as much of the sublime landscape as possible. We were both so blown away by Tasmania's beauty and wished we planned for a longer trip. However, it made for a great little taster and we can't wait to return!

Our first stop was Cradle Mountain, about two and a half hours drive west of Launceston. As we climbed in altitude, the weather started turning, meaning we could't really see the mountain - only a tiny glimpse as the clouds moved through. But it was so ruggedly beautiful! Set behind picturesque Dove Lake, there are many different walks available, all taking in the unique landscape and wildlife. So stunning.

Next: the Bay of Fires


  1. Beautiful pictures and such a different atmosphere to when I visited (blue sky, sunshine, 25 degrees). It looks breathtaking nonetheless. Tasmania is such a special place, looking forward to return as well!

  2. Welcome to my island home! I love seeing what other people photograph of Tasmania. Everything is so familiar but it seems so new again when I see it through other people's eyes (and lenses!)

  3. you are seriously fuelling my desire to visit Tasmania. Thanks for sharing.
