Leaving the coast road, we go inland and pass through an endless variety of landscapes.

The old gold mining town invites you to prospect for gold and in different houses you will learn more about life in "the good old days" in the Australian "Wild West".

Australia Devonport Tasmania

By sun up, the 7th state of Australia, Tasmania, is in view. A beautiful sight for those up early, and we land at the small harbour of Devonport. Riding along the coastal Bass Highway and exploring the Tasman rain forest, we arrive in Strahan. At the visitor's center you'll find an exhibition about the biggest environmental protests in Australia. Or you can go for a look of the rain forest train or a Gordon River Cruise visiting the Wild Rivers National Park. There are many activities in Strahan - something for everyone!

arrow down Day 14: Strahan > Hobart

Tasmania Coastal Bass Highway

The day begins with impressive photographic opportunities for nature lovers. Passing glassy clear lakes with beautifully coloured mirror images, we reach Glen Clyde House for lunch. Besides an excellent cuisine, you will find beautiful Tasmanian art and handcraft. In the afternoon we arrive in Hobart, the second oldest city in Australia and the capital of Tasmania. Our hotel is located in the centre, and the rest of the day is free time for everyone.

You learn more about the look for graphic accents and different perspectives as well as the use of different focal lengths. Finally, it is subtleties that lead to an individual photograph. For early risers we have the sunrise in the program - for night owls the sunset. And, of course, we will discuss the photo shoots of the participants in the tour group and award the best photo at the end of a Reuthers Photo Tour <<<
