TASSIE TOURING BY CAR

I often feel as though I am moving from the frame of one painting to the next as I travel through Tassie. The variety of landscapes, ever-changing colour palette and sheer scope of this little island lost in time never ceases to amaze me.  Many people think that you can see all of Tasmania in a couple of days. Or a perhaps a week. But I soon realized that although the distances between regions aren't always huge, the things to see along the way could keep me busy for months. I started my Tassie tour by renting a car from Hobart and heading up along the East Coast. Stopping along the way to do day walks on the Freycinet peninsula, fishing for flathead for dinner and staying up late to photograph the limitless night sky overhead. I ran on the beaches alongside whales in Binalong Bay and tested out the sapphire waters on Bicheno's coast. And that was easily a week in itself.
