I love my island home, TASMANIA. I know it’s tops so really did not need to be told it is in the world’s 5 top islands but, I must say, it feels good to have it acknowledged by a top US magazine. Thanks, US Travel and Leisure, for confirming we have a real treasure here.
………….”Tasmania’s stunning landscape and wildlife have seen it voted into the world’s top ten islands – but it’s not the only one in Australia on the list
Tasmania has been named fourth in the world’s top-five islands by US-based Travel and Leisure magazine
Voters cited Tasmania’s fresh air, stunning landscapes, quirky fauna and good food among the state’s treasures
Almost 1.6 million people visited Tasmania between 2013 and 2014 – nearly double the population of the state
Tourism attractions include the vibrant capital Hobart, the stunning Bay of Fires and historic Port Arthur jail
The Apple Isle was left off a map of Australia featuring on the Commonwealth Games uniform earlier this year”

Here are some of my photos. from the North/ North West of the state… basic camera and I am an ameteur photographer but here in Tas anyone can take an OK pics. So many opportunities
s the photo of Fagus at Cradle Mt was taken by my husband, Keith Antonysen. (sorry, no tripod for the sunset at Turners Beach}. Apart from Keith’s and my waterfall one at Cradle Mt, these are not of Tassie’s iconic tourist locations…. but photography and painting opportunities are everywhere. The last one is even taken out of the window of the moving car … highway view.
