West Coast Wilderness Railway - originally erected by the Mount Lyell Mining Company to serve the copper mines - its construction was a pioneering feat of engineering, winding along the King River gorge, through thick rainforest and hand-hewn rock tunnels, and over an impressive 42 bridges. It is now a 1-hour 'heritage trail' ride through history.
Creepy Crawly Nature Trail, Southwest National Park, Tasmania----Take a walk through a lovely section of cool temperate rainforest. The fully-boarded track gently weaves its way around moss-covered trees and over giant logs.
Great shot of ‘The Nut’ at Stanley in north-west Tasmania by @thisismylife_tasmania. The Nut, an ancient volcanic formation rising 143 metres from the sea, dominates the headland that the fishing village of Stanley shelters behind. No exertion is necessary when the chairlift takes you to the top for breathtaking views of the historic town and the coast. #tasmania #discovertasmania#tasmaniasnorthwest #stanley
The Tasmanian devil (Sarcophilus harrisii) is a carnivorous marsupial, now found in the wild only on the Australian island state of Tasmania. The size of a small dog, it is the largest carnivorous marsupial in the world.Males fight one another for the females, and then guard their partners to prevent female infidelity. devil facial tumour disease has drastically reduced the devil population and now threatens the survival of the species, which in 2008 was declared to be endangered.
