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.
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.
The peace and calm of a Tasmanian beach. One can walk for hours and not see another human being. An abundance of birdlife exists, waders, birds of prey, penguins as well as the occasional white wallaby. Not albino but white fur – unique to this place.
This island is like no other place in its pristine magnificence.

Mount Everest with Everest Base camp in the foreground.
This place is so rich in history, stories of survival and death, the strength of the human spirit and great human courage. In particular the inspirational dedication, loyalty and utter dependability of the brave Sherpas, who made climbing Everest possible. I am drawn to return to the Khumbu, which I shall do in 2018.
