my photos

Ocean Beach, Tas, Aus ...

The longest stretch of beach in Tasmania, and the most beautiful I have ever encountered.



There's no land mass between here and South America!



Life's a beach, but someone has to do it!



From this photo it's difficult to conceive the wingspan on this bird. The remains of a White-bellied Sea Eagle?



In season Muttonbirds fly in, to their burrows in the dunes.



A small bird blends in rather well in the sand.



You can get to Ocean Beach by un-sealed road. No trouble in a 4x4, we made it in a two-wheel drive erring on the side of caution!

If there really is a place one can call Paradise, this is it.

Lovely photographs - what a fantastic beach to walk along - and even better - it looks empty!
Does it get any better?

These are lovely. The sand in which the bird is camouflaged looks like an alligator!
