Top 10 Most Instagram Worthy Sights in Tasmania

Top 10 Most Instagram Worthy Sights in Tasmania

Tasmania is the perfect destination to experience beautiful landscapes and capture a wide range of photos. From beaches to mountains, waterfalls to gardens… this small island will have your wanderlust satisfied and Instagram posts covered!

You might even find some new travel Instagram accounts to follow!

1. Wineglass Bay

Located within Freycinet National Park, Wineglass Bay is one of the most beautiful places in the world! There are numerous ways to see the gorgeous white sand beach and crystal blue water. My favourite viewpoint is from the summit of Mount Amos – a steep hike up from the main parking lot. Go at sunrise for insane views like the one below.

2. Bridestowe Lavender Farm

This magical lavender farm near Launceston is definitely an Instagram worthy location! Go in the afternoon for softer light, try a lavender flavoured ice cream and take in the picturesque sights.

3. Bruny Island

A short drive & ferry ride from Hobart, Bruny Island is the perfect location for a quiet getaway. The island is full of native wildlife, massive trees and wild beaches. “The Neck” is an isthmus of land connecting the north and south parts of Bruny Island. Go at sunrise for better light and less tourists or at dusk for a chance to see the local penguins!

4. Bay of Fires

Bay of Fires is an absolute must-see if you’re in Tasmania! This conservation area is famous for its white sandy beaches, orange lichen-covered granite boulders and crystal clear waters. The image below was taken at Binalong Bay during an epic sunrise – often the best time for photos!

5. Mt Wellington

Mt Wellington towers above Hobart and offers some impressive views! The short 20 minute drive to the summit passes through various ecosystems and finishes with panoramic views of Hobart, Bruny Island, the D’Entrecasteux Channel and the South West Wilderness. Make your way up there at sunrise for the chance to witness light similar to Jason’s photo below.

6. Tasman Peninsula

The Tasman Peninsula is one of the most wild and stunning places in the whole of Tasmania. In my opinion, it is best to experience this coastal area via the Three Capes Track (click here for an in-depth review and description).  ‘The Blade’ on Cape Pillar is like nowhere else and has to be seen to be believed…

7. Little Blue Lake

Also known as Sth Mt Cameron, Little Blue Lake is an aqua blue slice of paradise. The colour is a natural phenomenon resulting from mining days and mineral build up at the base. If you can’t capture an epic Instagram photo here then you’re doing something wrong!

Instagram – @tasleolife


8. Cradle Mountain

Everyone should spend a couple of days exploring this wild and picturesque national park. The park is most famous for Cradle Mountain itself and beautiful Dove Lake sitting below. Mt Campbell is a short hike (but steep in parts) from Dove Lake and provides insane views of Cradle Mountain and the surrounding areas. The photo below was taken at sunset from just below the summit of Mt Campbell.

9. Russell Falls

Russel Falls is not surprisingly a very popular place for photographers to flock. Located in Mt Field National Park, the falls can be accessed via a 1 hour drive from Hobart and then a 20 minute rainforest return walk. Waterfalls are best photographed in soft light or during overcast weather. Use a tripod and long exposure to get that ‘milky’ look to the water.

10. Kitchen Hut

Kitchen Hut is another gem of Cradle Mountain National Park. I would highly recommend climbing the stairs to the second story. From here you can take in the views of Cradle Mountain through the upper doorway, also providing the perfect framing for your Instagram shot!
