The photos you normally see of the area around Wineglass Bay in Tasmania look like something out of a tourist brochure. Often, in fact, they are something out of a tourist brochure. Blue skies, white sand, clear water, the lot.
Not on the day I was there.
It had been raining on and off since early morning and I was a little dubious about taking the 13km loop track up and over the hill. Although the track was a bit damp underfoot the cool temperatures made hiking much more pleasant, however, and it turned out to be a great day’s exploring.
Coming across this piece of driftwood standing watch out over the stormy ocean was just one of the walk’s many highlights.
