Launceston Airport morning arrival to Launceston City for a brief look before we head out to Sheffield for lunch followed by a an afternoon shoot at Dove Lake, Cradle Mountain National Park. If the evening is clear we may come back after dinner for some astrophotography.
After breakfast we will be doing some morning walks through the enchanted walk and pencil pines followed by an afternoon walk to Cradle Lake.
Strahan is a short two hour drive from Cradle Mountain National Park so that means we have a nice chance to stop along our route for some spontaneous shots. Lunch in Strahan followed by an afternoon shoot and finishing off with a spectacular sunset if we are lucky with the weather.
After breakfast we have a short drive to Corinna. A car barge will take us across the Pieman River to our home for the next two nights.
Day 5 & 6
Pieman River Cruise for an extra fee ($90) we will cruise for 4 hours up the river to the ocean (lunch included). Along the river we will see a plethora of tree species in the heritage listed rainforest of the Tarkine.
On our final day we have a long 3.5 hour drive back to Launceston. Along the way will stop to photograph our last waterfall and lunch in the town of Penguin for some fabulous fish & chips. After lunch it will be a short drive to Launceston if you wish to stay the night or straight to the airport if you are flying back home.
