Tasmania, New Zealand and Oz gallery

Postby farefam » Thu 23 Jun, 2016 5:08 pm

Attached is a link to an extensive set of digital photos from the last 8 years exploring Tasmania, New Zealand, Western Australia, Victoria and the Blue Mountains. They are in no particular order, but are some of my favourite spots or images and I hope you get to see some of them in person yourself someday. Best viewed in fullscreen slideshow mode (slideshow button first then F11 then adjust the display time or hide the captions if desired).

Fantastic photos farefam. Well done.

Isn't Tasmania part of Oz? :wink:

Yes MickyB, Tasmania is part of Oz (and a second home to me), but given the Tassie-centric nature of bushwalk.com I thought I'd better emphasise the Tasmanian part of the gallery first to encourage people to have a look! Although its a challenge to capture even a small part of the real beauty of a place in a photograph, the nice comments are appreciated.

Just advising that I have now updated this album to include my adventures from the last couple of years. You'll find the new photos at the end of the album. This includes pack rafting photos from Wild Rivers National Park in Tasmania and the Murchison Gorge in Kalbarri National Park in Western Australia. Also included are photos from a recent 6 week trip to the western part of the United States and Canada. Destinations there included Yosemite National Park, Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Arches National Park, Bryce Canyon, the Canadian Rocky Mountains and the Voyage of the Glaciers Cruise along the coast of Alaska and British Columbia.

This sampler album is getting pretty large now, so please be patient if some files take a while to download (they will sometimes appear fuzzy at first until they have fully downloaded and then they will show as properly sharp). Just click on the original link at the start of this topic to start your viewing. If you follow other links within the album they will take you to the individual albums for each place. I hope you find some inspiration there for your own bucket list adventures.

I've just updated this collection with photos taken from a 6 week visit to the Melaleuca area earlier this summer. New places include the Port Davey Track, Greystone Bluff, packrafting the Crossing and Davey rivers, packrafting in Port Davey, the South Coast track, New Harbour Range and the Southwest Cape circuit. You will need to scroll down to the bottom of the album for the new stuff. I can only hope that COVID-19 abates and we can all enjoy some more adventures sooner rather than later. In the meantime, if you wish, you can take some adventures through my eyes once more, in some of the world's most beautiful places.

Looks like Sealy Tarns on the way to Mueller hut, there never used to be a track that obvious, that's progress.
