Wild Tasmania, My Home


This spectacular piece is by Selmesfilms. It was shot by Phil Selmes on a visit to Tasmania.
(My guess is) the beginning shots are of the East Coast travelling down to the Tasman Peninsula then up through the central rainforest areas, perhaps Mt Field National Park. It also looked a lot like Liffey Falls as well in one shot. The last third is travelling the central highlands to Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake which is an alpine region and usually covered by snow in the colder months.
The first mammal shot is a paddymelon or a potteroo (not sure) a small wallaby type anyway and the second fury lump is a wombat.
I'll not lie to you, it brought a lump to my throat and a tear to my eye. I am very passionate about my beautiful home and this is just one aspect of it.
It is spectacular. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

  2. Oh Tanya, you have every right to feel a lump in your throat. Tassie truly is heaven on earth. But you know, ive got one too because believe it or not Tassie is part of Australia and that means its part of my home too. I truly am proud to be an Aussie.

  3. Tasmania sure is a beautiful place. Lots of great memories of our trip there many many many years ago. So stunning. I do hope we get back there again in the future. Sometime we talk of moving there... but as beautiful as it is I'm just not sure how I would go in the cold months.
