What’s Tasmania? Affectionately known as ‘the pubic hair of Australia’, the island of Tasmania sits at the south end of mainland Australia.
Where do I find this crazy amazing scenery?: You can find amazing scenery all over the island, but these pics are from the Cape Hauy track; part of the Three Capes Walk on Tasmania’s south-east coast. It allows you to wander along the top of the tallest sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere, and see some of the most amazing coastline you’ll ever see.
Point me in the right direction: Drive towards the historic settlement of Port Arthur and take the turnoff for Fortescue Bay (about 1.5 hour drive from Hobart). The adventure begins at the Fortescue Bay campgrounds.
Is it hard? It looks hard: The track is about 3-4 hours return and has just been upgraded, so it’s looking pretty spick and span. It’s not overly difficult but it includes a bucketload of stairs. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
