If you come to Tassy you wanna see the nature, the crazy wildlife of Australia, the wonderful landscape (if you’re not interested in that cancel your flight straight away!). There are two ways to explore that: by helicopter and plane (which is pretty expensive and probably no choice for anyone who reads travel blogs) or you go hiking. And there are quite a lot of walking paths on this island as approximately 40% are National Parks.
One of my favourite hiking tour became Cape Raoul. Not only is the landscape magnificent. This is a magic place where Pasta learn to fly (here’s the proof)! Ok, maybe it’s less magic and more physic but anyway it’s damn impressive to see a Pasta or a stick that you throw down the cliff seeing coming up again and flying over your head (or you get even hit by a noodle) back because of the strong winds that blow up the cliffs.
You might even see some Echidnas (the only egg-laying mammals beside platypus) ambling the path next to you. They aren’t too afraid of humans…neither are the snakes! We met another traveler on the path who told us that a big snake was blocking the path making us walking in an always-on-alert-mode. Usually they shouldn’t attack you, but be aware not to step on them on accident. 😉
And make sure that you don’t loose the path at the end of the track as we did…but if you make it back to the start of the track you will be rewarded with a Finnish sauna! The farmer who’s property is next to Cape Raoul has build up a sauna which you can use for a donation and provides a camping zone for 5$/person! Make sure that you don’t come back too late (we started heating up the sauna at 9PM) and you may have a nice chat with Andy, the owner of the sauna!
I published thirty more pictures on Flickr (Click here to see them). Enjoy the view (without the damn strong wind up there), and tell me how you like the pictures 😉

This is the motivation to do the 2 hours walk at Fortescue. The rest of the hiking track is pretty odd, but it’s worth to walk there for this rock!

One of the probably most gorgeous thing to see in the world is a sky full of stars and when you look up to the sky in a clear night in Australia you can even see the milky way. This was one of my first shots of the stars, taken when we where camping at the Bays of Fire.

In Europe they are mostly known from Hollywood-movies but I finally saw one in real life in Deloraine in Tasmania – a big truck looking like Optimus Prime from Transformers.
