“All I wanted was a sheepie...just one sheepie...” -TOPSK
Please love and respect our beautiful planet and the incredible animals we share it with 🌏
When I first visited Tasmania about 25 years ago, I became obsessed with the Tasmanian Tiger. Yet another crazy Australian animal - dog like in appearance, with a stiff tail, a pouch like a kangaroo and a jaw able to stretch open to 80 degrees.
Sadly this beautiful creature has been thought to be extinct since the early 1900’s (although this doesn’t stop sightings every year) due to bounty’s set in place by European settlers, competition with introduced species, and disease. So many Australian animals have been lost to extinction, and so many are on the brink. Please do your bit to help them and to raise any awareness you can for our unique wildlife 🙌🏼

Storms over Tasmania's irreplaceable beauty
As the wilderness areas of Tasmania continue to burn I would like to continue to share some images of the places that are under threat. I have edited up about 30 images from my three days at Mount Anne, which currently has fire approaching from the northwest and the south. Even though 3 days does not sound like a long time the memories of have from that trip will last a lifetime. It was the hardest walk I've ever done through the most beautiful forest I've ever seen. A full album of these images can be viewed at or you can click the link in my bio. These will also be featured on my new account at @beautyoftasmania. If you love Tassie it would be awesome if you could follow my work over there too.
Radiatus clouds + 22 degree halo + lighthouse = epic cloud spot!! ☁️🔎 This is Jesse anytime there’s a bit of high cloud in the sky! Always searching for that elusive Circumzenithal Arc! After years of craning both our necks we are yet to spot one. But it doesn’t really matter, every sky is different and rarely does it disappoint! Like this one, absolutely spectacular!! Today on Three Hummock Island, we have a clear, blue sky with excellent visibility and not a cloud in sight. Heat haze ripples disturbance on the horizon and the animals seem to swelter in the heat, or maybe that’s just Jesse! 😆 Total fire ban out there day today! .

Take a refreshing dip in the crystal clear waters of Fortescue Bay. Find this slice of paradise in the beautiful #TasmanNationalPark. 💎🌿 Some spectacular walks depart from Fortescue Bay, including the #CapeHauy track (4hrs/4.4km return). Book a campsite and stay awhile. 👣⛺ Thanks @marktphotos for sharing this stunning shot with #HobartandBeyond. 💙

Looking up at the towering cliffs of Cape Hauy in this shot by @nikolaiw_. These mighty cliffs can also be accessed on foot as part of @hobartandbeyond‘s famed Three Capes Track or as a day walk from Fortescue Bay. But with so many fascinating things to see here in the Tasman National Park, including the Tasman Arch, Blowhole, and Remarkable Cave (to name a few), we suggest making a trip of it and spending a few days in the area! 🌄🗺👣 Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Nikolai!
