Arthur River - new images
We have just returned from a trip to Arthur River on the west coast of Tassie. What a wonderfully wild place it is! Huge waves constantly crashing onto the beaches and sucking out everything in their path. Huge piles of massive logs and kelp heaped onto the sand and rocks and in most places not a footprint to be seen. This is always a welcome scene for a photographer - most landscape photographers prefer not to share their space with other humans. We stayed in the Sunset Cabins at Arthur River - with a lovely view of the estuary. Highly recommended. We travelled up the Arthur River on the Reflections cruise. We were lucky enough to see the sea eagles feeding their young. One of the highlights was a trip to Couta Rocks just south of Arthur River where the sea is so ferocious that all boats are kept on high slips for protection. Have attached a couple of pictures for your enjoyment. They are available for purchase of course.
