The beauty of these wild and ancient places

They must be preserved for future generations. Not developed, over visited and exploited. They are perfect as they are.  These places are not tourist sites – they are sacred places. Our connection to ancient forests and rare animals. Not five star tourist cabins and helicopters.    IMG_5144.jpg

Early evening walk in the forest. Southern Tasmania.

As the summer sun sets, the air cools and light fades -the ancient forest transforms into a place alive with noisy marsupials, night bird calls and shadows.  It is a wonderful place to be. Tasmanian forest creatures are at their most alive and active at night.P2130139.jpg

On Kunyani (Mount Wellington) today. Such a beautiful mountain so close to Hobart CBD.

Easily accessible wilderness so close to the capital city.

There is no need for the proposed cablecar.  To build such an eyesore is a travesty on this beautiful wilderness.  We must do no further damage to this forest and leave it undisturbed for future generations to enjoy.P2130136.jpg
