Our itinerary . . .

Just a moment, first things first! We suggest that you set your camera clock to the local time, as your images will then synchronize with the times in our included photo tour field notes.

Day 1  |  The Hobart region
Our group will meet in the lobby of our gateway hotel near the Hobart airport at 11:30 am, and we'll kick things off with the included lunch plus a digital presentation of images you can expect to capture during this photo tour. Then via a few Hobart bridge shots prior to photography on Mount Wellington. The mountain affords some excellent views back to Hobart Harbour and city, plus some nice boulder foregrounds for perspectives. Dinner and evening light photography in historic Richmond.

Day 2  |  To Freycinet National Park
Early light on a beach near our hotel, then following breakfast we'll head north along Tasmania's east coast. On route we'll shoot in a variety of towns, plus the 'Spiky Bridge', Moulting Lagoon and more. On to Coles Bay for late light shots of the bay and Hazard mountain range in Freycinet National Park.
Coles Bay, 1 night

Days 3 + 4  |  Freycinet to Launceston
First light shots overlooking ocean inlets rocky promontories, then following breakfast we'll take a slow walk to the Wineglass Bay viewpoint shooting trees, vistas, and hopefully Wallabies as we go. Via Coles Bay, and on to Campbell Town for a series of poignant images historically connected to the British deportation of their 'hardened' criminals. On via historic Evandale to Launceston for two nights.
Early light shooting overlooking the Tamar River on day 4, then following breakfast we'll take a Tamar River loop out to where the river meets the Bass Strait. Subjects will include bridges, a lighthouse, small photogenic communities plus historical interests and more.

We'll explore a nearby gorge to start our day, then we'll be off in the direction of Cradle Mountain National Park. A series of small communities will be explored along with the colorful Sheffield murals. Then via remote Moina and the Middlesex Plains to Cradle Mountain National Park.
On day 6 we'll shoot Dove Lake both early and late, plus take a number of short but wonderfully photogenic and easy walks. You'll likely see Wombats and Wallabies while in the Cradle Mountain area.
Cradle Mountain NP, 2 nights

More dawn shooting at Cradle Mountain before breakfast, then one last amble on a short trail inside the Cradle Mountain National Park before returning via Middlesex Plains, a pair of lakes and rustic Zeehan etcetera. Late light at Strahan harbour.
