It is the land of the Devil… the Tasmanian Devil, that is. Yet, it is a little slice of heaven on earth. It is rugged and beautiful; it is pristine and raw. As the marketing commercial says, it is a world apart, not away. Tasmania is Australia’s smallest state, separated from the mainland by Bass Strait.
In December 2012, I took a two-week tour of the island, taking an anti-clockwise tour. I boarded to Spirit of Tasmania, and disembarked at Devonport, driving through Penguin, Burnie, Wynyard, Stanley, Smithton, Cradle Mountain National Park, Strahan, Queenstown, Tarraleah, Mt. Fields National Park, Hobart, Richmond, Port Arthur, Bicheno, St. Helens, Ross, Launceston, Deloraine and Sheffield before finally catching the Spirit back to Melbourne from Devonport.
I could tell you all about the trip (and I will have photography travel guide in the not too distant future), but it would seem a little silly to write about it, when I could show you what it was like!
I hope you enjoy the video!
