Tasmania: Tasman National Park.

We couldn't leave Tasmania without visiting Tasman National Park. Tasman National Park, like other spots in the Tasmanian east coast, has beautiful turquoise water and beaches. Unlike the Bay of Fires and Freycinet National Park, however, the edge of this coast is made up of cliffs that once caused many a shipwreck. The ancient rock formations throughout Tasmania are one of the highlights of the natural scenery here, and definitely part of what makes Tasmania so unique. This tiny state has everything: mountains, beaches, volcanic rock, dairy country and alpine country.

The photos below were taken at Tasman Arch, Remarkable Cave and Tessellated Pavement. Unfortunately we didn't have time to do a hike, but there were many scenic walking tracks of various difficulties, from easy 40 minute walks to the bigger 3-5 hour treks.

As I mentioned in one of my other posts, no other Australian state quite has weather like Tasmania—these photos go from being completely bright and sunny to having dark storm clouds hovering across the horizon. Later that afternoon it started hailing, and raindrops began to freeze as they met our windshield.
