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.

Highlights we were hoping to experience were of course the glaciers, puffins, waterfalls, and untouched landscapes. For me personally though it was the Symbol of Iceland which I hoped to get a glimpse of, the regal Gyrfalcon.
