SCENIC TASSIE




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




Lake Burbury camp ground





Lake Burbury sunset




Mount Owen, Queenstown




Macquarie Harbour, Strahan




Hell's Gates, Macquarie Heads, Strahan




Ground Parrot territory near Strahan aerodrome at dusk. We heard but failed to see these secretive birds.




More on Tassie to follow.




Cheers & Happy Birding!
