Looking for my next Aussie adventure destination. Tell me where has your fave Australian getaway been & why? What were some highlights? E.g. hiking, waterfalls, sunsets, beaches etc.... Have an amazing weekend people Big Jay
This 14km trek was amazing After a km or two (20-30mins) you see the beautiful coastline & once you do you know you're in for a treat. The walk itself is fairly comfortable (however undulating) & you can take it any pace you like. There have been recent upgrades to the tracks which make them wide, comfortable & easy to navigate. There are multiple spots that you can enjoy a rest & gaze out at the spectacular cliff edges & diverse coast line. This picture was taken at the end of the hike & is over an amazingly unique dolerite sea stack/column formation which sits roughly 200m above the dark blue sea. With amazing views to Cape Pillar, Tasman Island & this rugged Coast line. I cannot recommend it enough. They suggest to allow 5hrs however with a good hr+ shooting I returned in about 3.5hrs. Pretty tired might I add
The best view Tasmania has to offer. Mt.Amos. Wineglass Bay. #freyicenetnp
I almost decided against this climb & I had good reason to do so. However I'm so glad that I persevered to witness my favourite & most memorable sunrise to date
After a huge first day. Driving from Hobart to Russell Falls/Gordon Dam/Freyicenet National Park. Roughly 7hrs driving time covering around 500km. Add a few + hrs shooting on location & you have one hell of a hectic first day. Arriving at Freycinet National Park around midnight. To find that the campervan rental company didn't provide any bedding was a little disappointing to say the least. I spent a frozen night only managing around 2.5-3hrs sleep. Exhausted I arose at 5.30am torch in hand & setting off solo to climb the magnificent #MtAmos On a hiking scale the walk distance is short. However it is physically demanding & slippery in places. If wet do not attempt to climb this as it's already slippery & near vertical in places. The darkness added to the level of difficulty & visibility (obviously) However the mountain was mapped with yellow arrow markers which if you follow carefully makes it easy to navigate. I pushed on fairly hard as to not miss #sunrise & made it to the #summit in an hr if not just under. In time to witness this I had this view 100% to myself & it was an unbelievably humbling experience. An experience that I will never forget. Beauty like this cannot be forgotten or be as special as the first time you are exposed to it. & to be provided the colours I was made the occasion even more surreal. Hard work & perseverance reaps rewards. I'm stoked I was rewarded with this spectacular show @australiabestlocations
For anybody who knows this scene. Truly understands the effort, nerve & composure it took to capture this shot. Sitting roughly 200m over the edge of a cliff & onto smaller rock formations.
It was a thrill to caption this however the 60km+ winds made it even more of a challenge to do so.
Least I know this shot is one not everyone will be able to capture _
Cheers to @adam_dyson for the inspiration to visit here get round him peeps
My final day here in Tassie & I was treated to this spectacular display down by the waterfront only kms out of the city of Hobart. My 8 days here have been amazing! I/we (@jackcain_) travelled North, East, South & West & have been met with gorgeous & diverse landscapes around every corner. It's safe to say a love affair has begun & the pleasure has been all mine @tasmania
Till next time
