Going back a bit in time now to early December 2012, when we were travelling around Tasmania.One of the highlights of our ten week sojourn was the stunning Freycinet National Park situated on the peninsula of the same name along the east coast.

We spent a week here enjoying the spectacular scenery and varied wildlife.
The weather here during most of our visit was excellent, and the birding was pretty good too. A total of 46 species ticked off on the Parks comprehensive checklist of well over one hundred.
Beautiful beaches and plenty of places to explore.

On one of our walks we came across the carcass of a beach washed albatross. Being headless it was difficult to tell which species - possibly Shy or Indian Yellow-nosed Albatross.
This area is definitely a must visit for anyone contemplating a trip to Tassie!

Cheers & Happy Birding!
