Early January 2013 saw us leaving Hobart to explore and experience more of Tasmania's scenic delights. Following is a selection of images from some of the places we visited. 

The Neck - the narrow isthmus that connects North & South Bruny Island.
Swift Parrots seen on South Bruny, plus a suite of other species at this great birding destination.

Cape Bruny Lighthouse - circa 1836

Lighthouse Bay - South Bruny Island 

Lake St Clair, Australia's deepest lake at 200 metres.

A windy day at Shadow Lake, Lake St Clair National Park

Mt Olympus, Lake St.Clair Nat.Park

Nelson Falls, near Queenstown. Olive Whistlers were easily seen here. 

Lake Burbury - hydropower storage dam
