Top 5 Places In Tasmania To Take Great Photos

Tasmania is home to some of the most spectacular and photographed destinations in the country (perhaps even on the globe!) If you’re a keen photographer looking to capture that perfect Tasmanian photo, here are 5 photo opportunities that should not be missed.

1. The Spindled Peaks of Cradle Mountain

If you’ve researched Tasmania, you have probably already come across a photo of Cradle Mountain. This iconic natural destination is located in Lake St Clair National Park and offers great photo opportunities 365 days of the year- all you have to do is have your camera at the ready! A recommended place to get that iconic photo is at Dove Lake where you can frame the mountain in front of the lake with the old boatshed on the right-hand side. Take a tri-pod along for a photo that may end up taking the prime place on your wall. Put this experience at the top of your photography bucket list!

2. From the Pinnacle of Mt Wellington/Kunanyi

Get ready for another stellar photo opportunity 1271 metres above sea level at the pinnacle of Mt Wellington/Kunayani. Here you will capture perhaps the most coveted photo of Hobart with the Derwent River separating the western shore from the eastern. For the best photo opportunity, visit after it has just snowed on a clear day or when the sun is rising. Get ready to have your breath taken away!

3. Wineglass Bay from Mount Amos

If you’re prepared to hike a granite mountain on a steep and strenuous track, you will be rewarded with the chance to obtain Tasmania’s most coveted photograph of the widely publicized Wineglass Bay in Freycinet National Park. At the top you will be momentarily mesmerised by the curved bay below and the startling white sand. Bring along a backpack to carry your tripod and camera as you will want all your best gear to capture this spectacular sight. Those looking for a not-so-strenuous option can walk to the Wineglass Bay Lookout for an alternate photo opportunity that is almost as spectacular.

4. The ‘Southern Lights’ (Aurora Australis) 

Those looking for the chance to photograph the ‘Southern Lights’ (otherwise known as the Aurora Australia), will be rewarded in Tasmania. This natural light phenomena makes for the perfect photo and highlights the dark sky tinted with greens and purples. The Aurora Australia Tasmania Facebook Page offers information about when the light phenomena occurs and tips on where to find it. Popular viewing points for the Southern Lights in Tasmania include Howrah Beach on the Eastern Shore and the suburb of Howden south of Hobart.

5. Bay of Fires

Bay of fires on Tasmania’s East Coast harbours one of the world’s most spectacular and photogenic beaches. The beach is home to pristine white sand and iconic orange lichen-covered boulders that give it a unique edge. Anywhere in the vicinity of the beach will do to catch a beautiful photo.
