We have an incredible backyard. The imposing 300m high glacial cirque cliffs of Lake Huntley on Tasmania's West Coast, have been described by a local traveler as "one of the greatest geological monuments in Australia, yet they are not promoted, seldom visited and scarcely protected due to the rich mineral content of the region".

The old "don't look down" saying doesn't appear to apply in Tassie!

Montezuma Falls, near Rosebery on Tasmania's West Coast, claims the title of Tasmania's highest waterfall. Once at the Falls, a swing bridge crossing the gorge below provides a brilliant viewpoint to witness the sheer magnitude of Montezuma Falls!

Here's a challenge for you! Who can tell us (without google!) the name of these Islands?

They're home to breeding seabird and shorebird species include the little penguin, short-tailed shearwater, fairy prion, Pacific gull and sooty oystercatcher.

Hells Gates. A seemingly accurate name given to the mouth of Macquarie Harbour. The name of the channel relates to the original convicts' claim that it was their point of 'entrance to Hell', their Hell being the Macquarie Harbour Penal Station on Sarah Island.

We recently heard that Gen Y-ers consider Tassie the most desirable place to visit. Who can blame their incredible taste buds when we have the Cradle To Coast Tasting Trail and smorgasbords like this served at places like the Tasmanian Food & Wine Conservatory!?

It's no wonder local "North-Westers" are on My Kitchen Rules when we serve up produce this good!

A stunning pastel sunset on Tassie's West Coast we just had to share.

You can't plan for or schedule sunrises and sunsets, and that's what makes them so incredibly unexpected and special! You're the only person in the world who from your point of view will ever see them ... unless of course you take a picture and share it with us!!

Ever wanted to do Yoga at the Edge of the world? Turns out you can! (If you can stay standing against the wind that is!!!).

Famous for its strong roaring forties wind and for being the longest uninterrupted expanse of ocean on the globe; from Argentina the ocean currents sweep unimpeded more than halfway around the planet until they hit this point!

Looking for some great surfing spots for 2017? (or the long weekend?).

The Great Southern Ocean is a popular spot for surfing and adventurers with Green Point Beach being one of the beaches that are used for the O'Neill Cold Water Classic competition (which takes place around the end of March each year).
