Southerly seaside

Anchored shellAustralia’s island state of Tasmania sits to the south of that vast land mass, a hour’s hop by plane from Melbourne.

Tassie is about the size of Scotland or West Virginia, and packs in an awful lot of coastline. We drove from the coastal capital of Hobart up the east coast, passing through seaside towns with familiar names like Swansea to the ochre rocks of Bicheno.

Our travels also took us to the north, stopping at Beauty Point and stunning Freers Beach at Port Sorrel. The tide was out and there wasn’t another soul there – apart from hundreds of sand crabs scuttling around.

The towns are comfortingly sleepy and old-fashioned, while the coastline is beautiful, especially under a cobalt blue autumn sky. If you’re going to Tasmania, don’t stray far from the seaside.

  1. Great images from Tassie. I guess after your grey winter our bright blue skies came as a shock. The colour ones are great but the monochrome are equally interesting and give another point of view to the image.

    • Hi Lee, many thanks indeed! Yes, I wish our skies looked like that in early autumn. The blue was so compelling that I didn’t want to create any monochromes, but the strength of colour made them more dramatic. I think I’ve become a Tassiephile!
