The Dark Heart of Australia, Tasmania.

Recently Broadsheet sent me to the incredible Tasmania to discover the dark side of Australia. My hidden gem, a walk through the wild in Corinna.

A few days completely off the grid (no reception or 4g) in west Tasmania’s best kept secret. I stayed in an old mining area called The Corinna, which is surrounded by ancient rain forests right on the edge of the calming Pieman River and surrounded by mountains.

A few days well spent alone, walking through the rainforest, watching the sunset out to sea from the top of Mt Donaldson, the moon illuminating the sky later that night and the waking to a southing sunrise. Photographing the stars on the old jetty, reflecting in the perfectly still river and seeing subtle hints of the southern lights.

Tasmania is wild, rugged and unpredictably beautiful. It’s exciting and adventurous and I completely fell in love with it. I literally cannot wait to go back and see more.
