A few Glimpses of Tasmania - Down at the beach

Took these pictures at South Cape Bay which is about a five hour walk from the nearest road, but there are plenty of other lovely beaches which are much more accessible. This is the last bit of Tasmania before the Southern Ocean which is why the wind blows so much. I liked it because it was so isolated

You can hear this beach roar from a long way off

 Getting closer - the approach is via a rickety stairway down the other side of this cliff

 Wind pruned vegetation

 Littoral 
 
The Birds are enjoying themselves
Lion Rock

First Spider Orchid on the way back

Native Laurel

Dogwoods, I think
And then a very long walk through button grass plains, back to the car
Whew!
