Friendly Beaches
Found on the east coast of Tasmania, the Friendly Beaches is a wonderful spot to relax and soak up the beauty of the island state. Featuring fine white sand, crystal clear water and orange granite boulders, the area is nothing less than breathtaking. 
The pristine beaches, located within the Freycinet National Park, give visitors the opportunity to explore for as long as they fancy, for anywhere between five minutes and five hours. With no defined walking track, there is kilometre after kilometre of coastline to check out.
For those wanting experience more of what the Friendly Beaches have to offer, there are locations near the beach for visitors to park their cars and camp. There’s even a chance that campers will be able to spend some time brushing shoulders with some of the very friendly local wallabies and wombats!
This little slice of paradise should be a definite addition to the to-do-list of every Tasmanian adventure!

Milky Way over Australia’s Oldest Bridge
The peaceful shores of the Coal River are a great vantage point to stargaze, and it’s only a short 30 minute drive from the heart of Hobart. Last week @Davidolennon captured this extraordinary photo of the Milky Way spanning over a the quiet Richmond neighbourhood. Also featured in the photo is the Richmond Bridge, which holds the title of Australia’s oldest functioning bridge. This structure was built entirely by convict labour in over two years before it opened for use in 1825.

Double Rainbows In The Harbour
Following a day of work, the Tasmanian Air Adventures crew managed to soak up this stunning view as they unwound by the Hobart waterfront. The beauty of Hobart’s historical waterfront was only improved by the appearance of a coveted double rainbow.

Fabulous Tasmanian Flora
Having been both geographically and genetically isolated from the mainland for a long period of time, Tasmanian flora has evolved to become very unique. Home to endemic flowering plants, conifers, lichens, mosses and fungi, the various terrains of the island state, including mountains, rainforests and coastal regions, have contributed to the evolution of so many different species.
On a recent visit to Tasmania, textile designer Josefine Brodd managed to experience the unique flora firsthand, collecting samples of several different species.

Pieman River
Situated in Tasmania’s north west, Pieman River has a fascinating story behind its naming. Transported to Tasmania in 1816 as a convict, Thomas Kent, a pastry chef by trade, managed to evade authorities after escaping from a penal facility. When he was finally found, the river near the site of his capture was given the nickname of Pieman River.
The name inspired by Kent’s profession stuck and the river now snakes its way through Tikkawoppa Plateau Regional Reserve, Bernfai Ridge Conservation Area and Pieman River State Reserve.
