Shaking Hands with the Devil in Tasmania

Located at the bottom of Australia lies the rugged pristine wilderness filled island often overlooked by tourists heading down under. It may not have the glitz and glam of Sydney or Melbourne, but what it lacks in skyscrapers it makes up for with its towering 300+year old trees and its nightlife consists not of bars and restaurants but rather witnessing penguins return to burrows and devils fighting over a meal.

Mungo: A Journey into Australia’s Past

A place truly out of this world, so much so that it looks like the surface of the moon, Lake Mungo has acted like a time capsule allowing us to take a peek into Australia’s historic past.

The Walls take on incredibly beautiful colors at sunset so a drive out to the lookout at that time is highly recommended.
