Photography Tour Overview:
Prior to the arrival of European settlers in 1642, Tasmania was exclusive to it's indigenous Aboriginal people who named the island 'Lutruwita'. Our photography tour ranges from historic Richmond to Freycinet National Park, Campbell Town, Cataract Gorge, and Cradle Mountain National Park where Wombats and Wallabies are easy to photograph. The trip also includes a Macquarie Harbour cruise at Strahan, plus waterfalls, Tessellated Pavement, Port Arthur, and a second cruise around the Tasman peninsula for spectacular rock formations. As with all of our photography tours, early and late shooting is scheduled for each day.



Our itinerary . . .
But first things first! We suggest that you set your camera's clock to the local time, as your images will then synchronize with the times in our included photo tour field notes.

Day 1  |  The Hobart region
Our group will meet in the lobby of our gateway hotel near the Hobart airport at 11:30 am, and we'll kick things off with the included first day lunch. Then via a few Hobart bridge shots prior to photography on Mount Wellington. The mountain affords some excellent views back to Hobart Harbour and city, plus some nice boulder foregrounds for perspectives. Dinner and evening light photography in historic Richmond.
Near Hobart airport, 1 night

Day 2  |  To Freycinet National Park
Early light on a beach near our hotel, then following breakfast we'll head north along Tasmania's east coast. On route we'll shoot in a variety of towns, plus the 'Spiky Bridge', Moulting Lagoon and more. On to Coles Bay for late light shots of the bay and Hazard mountain range in Freycinet National Park.
Coles Bay, 1 night

Days 3 + 4  |  Freycinet to Launceston
First light shots overlooking ocean inlets rocky promontories, then following breakfast we'll take a slow walk to the Wineglass Bay viewpoint shooting trees, vistas, and hopefully Wallabies as we go. Via Coles Bay, and on to Campbell Town for a series of poignant images historically connected to the British deportation of their 'hardened' criminals. On via historic Evandale to Launceston for two nights.
Early light shooting overlooking the Tamar River on day 4, then following breakfast we'll take a Tamar River loop out to where the river meets the Bass Strait. Subjects will include bridges, a lighthouse, small photogenic communities plus historical interests and more.
Near Launceston, 2 nights

Days 5 + 6  |  Launceston to Cradle Mountain National Park
We'll explore a nearby gorge to start our day, then we'll be off in the direction of Cradle Mountain National Park. A series of small communities will be explored along with the colorful Sheffield murals. Then via remote Moina and the Middlesex Plains to Cradle Mountain National Park.
On day 6 we'll shoot Dove Lake both early and late, plus take a number of short but wonderfully photogenic and easy walks. You'll likely photograph Wombats and Wallabies while in the Cradle Mountain area.
Cradle Mountain NP, 2 nights

Days 7 + 8  |  Strahan and a Macquarie Harbour Cruise
More dawn shooting at Cradle Mountain before breakfast, then one last amble on a short trail inside the Cradle Mountain National Park before returning via Middlesex Plains, a pair of lakes and rustic Zeehan et cetera. Late light at Strahan harbour.
Following some early light photography and breakfast on day 8, we'll take a Macquarie Harbour cruise which will take us to Hells Gates [no, not literally!], Sarah Island, and the Gordon River which winds through a rain forest. We'll also explore the shoreline of Macquarie harbour during our Strahan stay.
Strahan, 2 nights

Day 9  |  Strahan to Russell Falls
Breakfast and an early departure toward the mining town of Queenstown this morning. Then various lakes and the wispy Nelson Falls, followed by a few shots of the King William the 1st mountain range as we pass through ever changing scenery on our way to our accommodation near Russell Falls.
Near Russell Falls, 1 night

Days 10 and 11  |  Tasman Peninsula
We'll start our day shooting Russell Falls, then shooting as we go, we'll cross the Derwent River via the Bowen bridge. If the light is any better in historic Richmond than our previous visit at the start of the trip, we'll amble about for a handful of images. On to the Tasman peninsula for our two night stay.
On day 11 we'll commence at dawn shooting the unique Tessellated Pavement. Today we take a spectacular Tasman coastline boat ride to photograph seabirds, and the fine array of rock formations that dot the Tasman peninsula. Whales were photographed on a previous trip. Historic Port Arthur will follow prior to an afternoon break, and late light at Pirates Bay.
Tasman peninsula, 2 nights

Day 12  |  Return to the Hobart airport
Another dawn excursion to start the day, then after hotel check-out we're detour for a series of spectacular coastal sandstone cliff scenes.
