Back in July 2014 I went on holiday to visit family in Tasmania. I took plenty of photos but am only just getting around to editing them all now! Here’s a few of the highlights from our trip.
When I was first starting out in photography I loved to photograph landscapes, and especially waterfalls. One of our first stops in Tas was the beautiful Mt Field National Park, and the Horseshoe and Russell Falls. So stunning – I could have stayed there for hours.
We drove further up the mountain and it was snowing! I didn’t want to risk my camera in the snow, but here’s a shot my Aunt took on our walk around the pond at the top. We don’t get snow in the Waikato, especially on the farm, so walking around in it is a real novelty.
Before I got to Tassie I reached out to a local pet photographer, Mel Murzecki from Furry Feet Photography. We had a great lunch together and took her two dogs Cookies and Minnie out to a park in Hobart while we talked all things pet photography. So much fun!
While we were around Hobart we stopped at ZooDoo to meet some of the locals. Can’t go to Tasmania without seeing a Tasmania Devil!
We went on a big road trip around the North of Tasmania, stopping in Launceston, Davenport and the Cradle Mountain National Park to name a few. It was a really overcast, freezing cold day when we went for a big walk up one of the mountains, but once it all cleared it was worth it. Beautiful!
We met a wild wombat on the walk back.
And visited Cataract Gorge.
One of our last stops in Tassie was Bruny Island and “The Neck”. Some of the most amazing pizza and fudge you will ever find, topped off with a Lighthouse and epic clouds.
On our way home we had a couple of nights in Sydney. It was neat to see all the landmarks that we’re used to seeing on TV, even more so visiting the animals at the zoo. Many of which I had never seen in person before. Great way to top off the holiday!
Overall it was an awesome holiday, and I can’t wait to go back to Tassie again one day. The highlights were meeting Mel, visiting Mt Field National Park, Bruny Island and catching up with family who I hadn’t seen in a while. Definitely a must-visit if you ever get the chance!
