National Parks of Tasmania (2)

Part 2 of 3

The rest of our time in Tasmania was spend on the East Coast exploring Wineglass Bay and then we headed inland to Mount Fields National Park on our last day. I was going to try to cram two national parks in this entry, but decided to make a third instead...

Wineglass Bay offered the opportunity to hike up to a viewpoint and gaze out at the bay, and then, if you were feeling ambitious (of course we were), to hike down to the bay and relax by the waters.

First we encountered some wildlife in the carpark though!

Then we headed up the trail, and by trail, of course I mean stairs.

Finally we reached Wineglass Bay...

Then we headed down to the water's edge. P2212341.jpg

While laying on the beach, I kept my eyes on the water and was rewarded in seeing some dolphins swim by!

Wineglass Bay is very popular with tourists, especially the lookout point, but not many venture down to the sands so that was a good escape!
