Pausing for a moment to take in silence and vastness of the Tassie night sky, lit up by the vibrant Milky Way. As you can see in this shot captured by @tscharke, Tassie is the perfect place to escape the light pollution of major cities and rediscover the night sky. Much of Tassie's coastline is perfect for stargazing as there is limited ambient light and endless horizons, giving you full 180 degree views to look up in pure wonder. 🌌🏠👤 Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Luke!

Making friends with one of Maria Island's many furry locals and @davidgreen3575. Located just off Tassie's East Coast, Maria is accessible only by ferry and contains the most intact example of a convict probation station in all of Australia. As there are no vehicles on the island, visitors have the option to walk or cycle their way along eucalypt forest tracks, past historic ruins, and rugged cliffs and mountains. Keep an eye out for the abundant wildlife along the way, especially wombats, kangaroos, and pademelons like this little guy. 🌾🐾🚲 Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, David!

Squeaky white sand, turquoise waters, vibrant orange boulders, and not another person in sight... what more could @melissafindley ask for? If you're looking for us this weekend, we're here exploring the hidden coves of Sloop Reef on @eastcoasttasmania's Bay of Fires. Whether you're hiking the granite boulders of the Freycinet Peninsula, snorkeling the shallows of Maria Island or camping near this stunning spot, Tassie's East Coast is sure to provide just the right balance of adventure and uninterrupted relaxation. 🏖️🌅🐠 Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Mel!
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!

We reckon this image from @ty_sheers_photography captures the essence of Binalong Bay on @eastcoasttasmania – serene, laid-back and absolutely stunning. As the sun goes down, a kaleidoscope of colours starts to emerge – from the fiery red lichens on the granite boulders, the deep greens of the neighbouring native flora, and the bright colours of an evening sky reflected in the impossibly clear waters. It’s the perfect setting to take a quiet little moment. Or two. Or three… 🌅😍 Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania! #TassieStyle

Sunrise hues light the sea cliffs near Cape Raoul on the Tasman Peninsula in this image by @jakecoleman. Cape Raoul is one three local landmarks that lend their name to the Three Capes Track: a four-day walking adventure that showcases the area's remarkable coastal landscapes, including some of the highest sea cliffs in the southern hemisphere. The 46-kilometre walking track weaves throughout the Tasman National Park and a tapestry of natural environments from rainforest pockets through to flowering coastal heathland. 🌄👣🌊 Just perfect! Thanks for tagging us!

Step through nature's doorway to this beach at Mars Bluff, @tom.ella.moments have saved you a spot! A feature of the 12-kilometre return day-walk to Cape Queen Elizabeth on North Bruny Island's east coast, Mars Bluff lies at the northern end of Adventure Bay and offers sweeping views of Bruny's coastline and the famous isthmus (land-bridge) that links North and South Bruny Islands. 🔭 ☀️ 💦 Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Tom and Ella!

Anyone keen for an early morning dip? @mk_all4adventure found these inviting shores along the Bay of Fires on Tassie's East Coast. These refreshing waters are perfect for a day (or a couple of days) playing in the secluded coves and along the untouched, white-sand beaches. The coastal seascapes and iconic orange-hued boulders provide the most atmospheric of settings no matter the season, so it's easy to see why the Bay of Fires holds a firm place in the hearts and minds of locals and visitors alike... Meet you there? 💦💙🐬 Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Michael!

Catching a glimpse of Cape Bruny Lighthouse on the walk up to the base with @i.m.li. When first lit in March 1838, Cape Bruny was Tasmania’s third lighthouse and @Australia’s fourth. It is now the country’s second oldest and longest continually staffed lighthouse still in existence. Located at the southern tip of Bruny Island, the lighthouse is surrounded by a breathtaking landscape of towering sea cliffs and a coastline of lush natural forest. 🍃💡⚓ Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Li!

The sights, sounds and spectacle of Tassie’s summer celebrations have commenced. Curious events are popping up across @northerntasmania’s gateway Launceston with @monamuseum’s summer festival @monafoma transforming this delightful town into a garden of mortal delights and divine corruption from Saharan desert rock, Polish punk, Swedish pop to a mass onesie extravaganza and monumental inflatable art such as @ParerStudio’s Man lit up captured above at the First Basin, Cataract Gorge Reserve. The best part? It's your choice to either dip your toe in, or to completely immerse yourself. Either way the FOMA is the only proven cure for the FOMO. So what are you waiting for? Get amongst it! 📸: @monafoma#discovertasmania#monafoma#northerntasmania

Admiring the vibrant, lichen-covered granite boulders that line the Bay of Fires region with @theworldasiam. Named in 1773 by Captain Tobias Furneaux after he observed the coastal fires of local Aboriginal people, the Bay of Fires Conservation Area covers 1210 hectares of coastal wilderness. It's a haven for outdoor adventures including camping, bird watching, swimming, snorkelling, and walking. And of course, quiet little sunrise views! 🔥🌴🌅 Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Ben! #TassieStyle

Dawn's warmth lights up the hills of Greater Hobart in @harryvick's stunner shot from the summit of kunanyi / Mount Wellington. Set your alarm and take the 30-minute drive to the pinnacle of 'The Mountain' and you'll be rewarded with 360-degree vistas across @hobartandbeyond: the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, the Derwent Valley, the D'Entrecasteaux Channel and the Tasman Peninsula. Just do it! (You can always have a nap later...) ⏰ ☀️ 🙌 Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Harry!
