Tasmanian Magic


I had a trip planned to travel down the west coast of Tasmania, but I was little prepared and thoroughly under researched, partly because I didn’t have the time before I left and partly because that’s the way I like to travel sometimes. Just book a ticket, arrive and see what happens next. What happened next on this trip amazed me. Instead of following the coast, I tracked inland and ended up following a path of waterfalls and rivers. Just before my arrival the first serious rains of the winter had let loose across the island meaning the rivers and waterfalls were in full-flow and looking spectacular. So I ditched the coast (there was no surf for me anyway) and walked along rivers, up hills and through farmlands. It was epic. If you have a love of the outdoors, then Tasmania is a place you should visit. It was my second trip and I already have plans for a third and no doubt more after that.

So come with me on a visual adventure, through a place that is simply magical. A place of storybook mushrooms growing wild on paths to waterfalls that I guarantee will make you gasp. Through farmlands that meet the sea and glow crazy shades of yellow and gold in the afternoon light. A place where the cold and the rain create forests of your childhood dreams. Come with me on a creative adventure through Northern Tasmania.

Enjoy your day,
Joel Coleman…

    Thank you Joel. We moved from Manly 18 months ago to Tasmania, squeezed out by the high cost of living and insecure work. We were sad to leave such a beautiful place and loved all of your work there – sometimes I would see you out early on a dawn run or surf myself. But were are just so thankful that the universe has conspired to bring us to Tassie. Great surf, outdoors, nature and people. Amazingly good photos

    you are building toward an excellence in diversity
    great to know that in a world of easy photography there are those out ahead still in endless pursuit of the impossible possible
