It’s getting close to that time of the year when the ‘Fagus’ starts to turn yellow… usually around Anzac day is a good time to go up to the Tarn Shelf in Mt Field to try to catch the stunning colours of Tasmania’s only deciduous tree, Nothofagus Gunnii.
Mt Filed National Park is only 1 hour drive from Hobart and offers rainforest, waterfalls (including the world famous Russell Falls) as well as alpine landscapes. It is a must see when visiting Hobart.
We are so lucky to have our own 150 hectare reserve… Well ok it’s not our own (it belongs to Hobart City Council) but it certainly feels like it 🙂
Most mornings I go for a walk with the dog. It’s a great way to start the day and remind myself how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful part of the world.
The Signal Station next door is one of the best spots close to Hobart to photograph the night sky and the aurora when it happens.
Here is a 360 panorama of the aurora and the Milky Way at the Signal Station:
We offer night sky / aurora photography tours at the Signal Station on request. Contact us for more info.

"The location was great with its semi bush setting so close to the city. All in all it was very good value for money and we would certainly plan to use it again."
