Nature Images in Tasmania's Lake St Clair, Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers, Cradle Mountain and Freycinet National Parks

Tasmania is an island state off the south coast of Australia connected by the Melbourne to Devonport vehicle ferry that cross Bass Strait to islands north coast. Hobart on the south east coast is the state capital and is just an hour's flying time from Melbourne and one and-a-half hours from Sydney.

Tasmania is surprising large with diverse regions and some smaller offshore islands, but with only six days for a self-drive car-tour, it's only possible to sample a few regions and National Parks. Visit the wild and wet west coast, in the high central plateau and the warmer and drier east coast, which offer varied, landscape, nature and wildlife photography opportunities.

Start with an overnight stay in Hobart city then drive through the central highlands via the Lyell Highway (A10) to St Clair National Park for a picnic lunch and walking. Then to Strahan on the west coast for a couple of days and a cruise on the Gordon River in the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park.

From Strahan drive through the central highlands via C132 to Dove Lake in the Cradle Mountain National Park for walking and lunch – then to Swansea on the East Coast for two days to walk in the Freycinet National Park.

Drive to Port Arthur in the South East, visit the Historic Site and stay overnight before flying to Sydney.
