Tasmania is a place that is known for its natural beauty, in fact, 1/3 of the state is set aside as national parks. So while driving from Hobart to Strahan, we passed through a large concentration of these beautiful places.
Mt. Field is Tasmania's oldest national park, founded in 1916, it beat Freycinet National Park by a few months in this claim to fame. The park is known for its gum trees, massive tree ferns, and wildlife. We saw a few wallabies while here. Visitor Information
Lake St. Clair is part of the Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park. At 200m it is Australia's deepest lake.
Queenstown is a town with a lot of history in mining. The town first had ties to gold mines then later copper. The town also gives tours of them to bring in some tourism. These days the cliffs around the town are looking a little bare unfortunately due to logging and smelting practices from the early days.
