A Bay Of Beauty
Local Paul Fleming has recently been sharing some of his favourite places on Tasmania’s east coast with mainlander and photographer Matt Donovan, capturing some of the wonderful views they come across along the way. Continuing their adventures, Paul and Matt stopped in at the breathtaking Binalong Bay. 
Located within the Bay of Fires, the bay boasts sparkling clear water and magnificent white beaches with orange hued granite rocks scattered between the two. Although seemingly suited to a tropical island, the beauty of the area is a reminder of the diverse and contrasting landscapes that can be found within the island state.

Bellerive Beauty
With the sun slowly making its way behind distant mountains, Bellerive Beach in Hobart’s suburbs looks magical in the late afternoon light. The remaining sunlight displays brilliant shades of orange, highlighting the form of the rocks that make up the shoreline and reflecting on the water.
Facing onto the Derwent River, the beach is yet another wonderful vantage point for soaking up the last of the day’s sun and watching the way in which the area is transformed by the dwindling light.

Narawntapu National Park
Matt Donovan got up close and personal with Tassie wildlife on his latest photography adventure around Tasmania’s north with local, Paul Fleming. Here’s what he recalls of his experience in Narawntapu National Park: 

Without a doubt, Narawntapu National Park is one of the best places in @Tasmania to view wildlife. Located on Tasmania’s North coast, Narawntapu is home to some of the rarest and most approachable native animals in the state. Within seconds of getting out of the car, we were greeted by dozens of cute, furry and friendly critters of all sizes! This particular furry critter is a Forester Kangaroo with a baby joey peeking out to say hello! These guys are the largest marsupials in Tasmania and can stand a whopping 2 metres tall! Yikes!
