Tantalising Tasmania

Several years ago, a good friend and I spent a week holidaying in Tasmania - WHAT a fabulous place to visit. The scenery is fantastic and there's so much to see and experience. We couldn't do it justice in that short time-frame, but got a taste by flying into Hobart in the south, hiring a car and driving up the middle of the island to Launceston in the north where we spent a few days exploring. Then drove along the east coast aways before returning to Hobart for the remainder of our stay.

The following images were taken in the Russell Falls region of the Mt Field National Park, north-west from Hobart:


I am hopeful of making another trip to "Tassie" sometime in the future to absorb more of the island's delights.

Many thanks (and apologies) to those who persevered with my previous ghastly choice of text colour! Am still in the final throes of painting my home so my attention to blogging details has fallen by the wayside in my brief attempts to be a bit more adventurous with the page!...
Your comments are much appreciated.

Valerie,
Don't worry about the text color:) I have also neglected blogging lately, because of busyness (sigh)
That waterfall is incredible!

Great shots. Like much of Tassie it look like a secret garden. I have loved our three trips to Tassie. The north and west coasts are stunning too as well as the Cradle Mountain area.

What a splendid place. I saw platypus and Quolls at Mt. Fields. That was some day!
