The wilds of Tasmania. Ancient groves in Australia
Like mainland Australia, the island state of Tasmania is home to many distinct landscapes and ecosystems, and Mount Field National Park is a spectacular showcase of the island’s diversity. Our photo shows the forest-covered shores of Lake Dobson, where a hike through the rare Pandani Grove, full of the palm-like trees, highlights some of the rare species of plants and animals that call the park home. And if that’s not enough, some of the hills and mountains in the park have ski runs during snowy winters.
