Southern Tasmania

There’s no place like home. For me it’s always great getting back to my roots, seeing family and friends, and photographing the raw beauty of Tassie. The following pics give a glimpse of what’s on offer in a few spots in Southern Tasmania near Hobart.

Around every corner this place has something to offer those who venture down south, way down south.
