Western Wilderness, Tasmania

Returning to Tasmania last month was a pleasure. Though we set sail in the middle of winter, our suitcase was filled with woollens and puffy jackets, gumboots and gloves. Ben and I were prepared. The cold simply enhanced our experience, assisting in making the beauty feel more tangible. In a place so stunning and seemingly surreal, our frost-kissed cheeks and chilly toes acted as a reality check, a playful pinch reminding us that yes, this is real. We’re here. It’s freakin’ cold and it’s spectacular.

Here is the link to my words for Tourism Tasmania and the Spirit of Tasmania. Writing for them has been a real treat. And because I can’t help myself, I’ve included oh, just a few more photographs from our three day Western Wilderness journey. Happy Sunday, folks x

    Great shots! For a minute I felt like I was there. I went to Tassie 10 years ago but I feel like I would appreciate it sooo much more now. Itching to get back down. Oh and how cute are your jumpers?! E x

    Oh, how I would love to visit Tasmania! It’s been on my list for ages and sadly, it remains unseen (for now. Watch this space!). I love these photographs. There is always something incredibly restorative about reading your blog, Heidi. I love your work and I’m ever so thankful to have come across you on my internet travels. Stunning, just beautiful xoxox
