Tassie, You Devil. 3 Days Of Hiking Highlights

The view from the trail out to Cape Hauy, Tasmania.

Native Australian bushland greets the salty waters edge. Grand gums, hundred of years old, stand firm on the granite bed and dip their roots in the wild seas. Rivers run into the bays, tinted with the tannin from the fallen trees. Oyster shells shucked adorn the beaches as if to tease you into the water for a feast. It’s an invitingly simple lifestyle that awaits in Tasmania.

Boasting 4500km of coastline, it’s easy to be swept away into the wild seas, if only metaphorically.

Whether walking along pristine beaches, diving into the waves or taking in spectacular views of the dolerite columns jutting from wild seas, you will lose all sense of time.

(Fun fact-NSW & VIC have less than this in their collective coastline)
