The landscapes of Australia are truly out of this world, and so are the sunsets. This is the incredible sunset at Wollemi National Park, home of the prehistoric Wollemi Pine. It was like an Aurora Solaris – the sunset version of northern lights.

The Hazards – Scrambling up to prehistorical views

The Hazards – Scrambling up to prehistorical views

At just over 450 metres, Mount Amos isn’t really that high, but its inclination gets rather steep & challenging. You’ll have to scramble your way up (and down again!) over huge granite boulders to reach the top of this peak in The Hazards mountain range. Once you’ve braved the hardcore scrambling bit, you’ll be rewarded with awe-inspiring views over Wineglass Bay and the Freycinet Peninsula on the east coast of Tasmania.

Hinchinbrook Island – Unspoiled tropical wilderness

Hinchinbrook Island is pure bliss. Rugged mountains covered in lush jungle vegetation, broad sweeping beaches and meandering estuaries. Unspoiled wilderness that can only be explored on foot. The Thorsborne Trail follows a 32 kilometre route along the east coast. It’s one of the most beautiful hikes in the world.
