Maatsuyker Island Lighthouse and the smaller rocky islands known as The Needles, five kilometres off mainland Tasmania’s south-west coast. Australia’s southernmost lighthouse, the Maatsuyker Island lighthouse was completed in 1891 and was the last Australian lighthouse to be officially operated by lightkeepers. This is one of the most remote parts of Tasmania. #discovertasmania #tasmaniaparks #maatsuykerisland #tasmania #lighthouse Image Credit: Garry Norris

A stunning display by the Milky Way over the Lufra Hotel, near Eaglehawk Neck on the Tasman Peninsula. The Neck - a narrow land-bridge to the Tasmanian Peninsula - was once guarded by a line of chained dogs to prevent convicts from escaping the notorious prison settlement at Port Arthur. These days it's a natural gateway to the remarkable history and geological wonders of the region. #discovertasmania #tasmania #tasmannationalpark #eaglehawkneck Image Credit: Francois Fourie

An atmospheric sunrise over Sandy Bay, an inner-city suburb of Hobart. Many of the suburb’s residents have a love for sailing, and have their boats – an eclectic mix of modest and extravagant – moored at the nearby Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania. #discovertasmania #sailing #sandybay #sunrise #hobart #tasmania Image Credit: Matt Glastonbury

Tasmania’s southwest is a mysterious and remote landscape that is surprisingly accessible on a day trip from Hobart. http://www.traveltherenext.com/explore/item/533-exploring-tasmania-s-southwest-national-park #scenicflight #tasmania #nationalpark #discovertasmania

Looking out over #Hobart in @Tasmania on a beautiful and sunny winter’s day with @loves_laughs. This shot was taken from the top of the majestic Mt.Wellington, where you can see panoramic views of Hobart, Bruny Island, South Arm and the Tasman Peninsula. The lookout is 1,270 metres above sea level, but just a 20 minute drive from the city centre. #Padgram

If people have been to Flinders Island one of the first things they’ll tell you about is the ‘Flinders Island Wave’. It’s a great starting point, because knowing that you’re expected to wave to every driver you pass on the roads says more about the island than any brochure could. http://gobehindthescenery.com.au/firsttime/flinders-island/#.VCIclPmSxb4 #flindersisland #tasmania #discovertasmania

Nine hundred residents, 120 beaches and wallabies and pademelons. Do the numbers on Flinders Island and what it adds up to is acres of untouched wilderness.
