If you are a big fan of saying hello to the sun, then you’re probably keen to find new locations to see this beauty. We’ve put together a list of a few special places to watch the sunrise across Tasmania, that might tickle your fancy.
- kunanyi/Mt Wellington – arrive at first light to watch the city lights slowing dim as the sun begins to rise and take time to appreciate a beautiful moment in nature.
- Tessellated Pavement, Tasman Peninsula – facing east, the sunrises here are always stunning and when combined with the reflections off the water, are a photographer’s delight.
- Truganini Lookout, The Neck, Bruny Island – There are plenty of beautiful beaches to take a sunrise stroll along Bruny Island but watching the sky light up from the Truganini Lookout at the Bruny Island Neck is a bit of a favourite.
- Hartz Mountains National Park – There’s nothing quite like watching the sunrise or set from the mountain peaks. It might be a little extra effort but if you are willing and able, then Hartz Peak is a must.
- Spring Beach – head down to the water and watch the sunrise over Maria Island.
- Cosy Corner north, Bay of Fires – see why it’s really called the bay of fires (it’s not just the rocks when the sky turns it on).
- Cape Tourville Lighthouse, Coles Bay – a cape, a lighthouse and endless eastern views over the ocean. What could be a better way to start your day?
- Kelvedon Beach with Boatshed – The old boat shed sitting picturesquely on the point overlooking Great Oyster Bay and Schouten Island is one you can’t miss on the Great Eastern Drive.
- Cube Rock, South Mt Cameron – Cube Rock offers plenty of photo stops and a perfect position to watch the sunrise from the summit. For a double dose of natural wonder take in the azure waters of Little Blue Lake at the track’s starting point.
- Ben Lomond – One of the best places in Tasmania to feel like you’re on top of the world. Head up and look out over the Northern Midlands.
- Low Head – a sunrise with an iconic lighthouse, what could be better?
- Mount Strzelecki, Flinders Island – the highest point on Flinders Island, prepare to be awestruck and not just by the views.
- Disappointment Bay, King Island – Be anything but disappointed as you settle in for a sunrise on this beautiful beach. The long stretches of white sand, occasionally broken by large, enigmatic rocks are perfect for walking, swimming, surfing, paddling or just generally lolling.
- Mount Owen, West Coast – The top of this mountain boasts a 360-degree view of dams, mountains, the towns and more.
- Table Cape Lookout, Wynyard – The magnificent plateau of Table Cape is one of Wynyard’s most remarkable natural wonders. As you drive to the top of the remains of a 12 million-year-old volcano you’ll reach a viewing platform where, on a clear day, you can see George Town’s Low Head and mountain ranges over 175 kilometres away.
- Mersey Bluff lighthouse, Devonport – This smartly striped lighthouse has been watching over the bass strait since the late nineteenth century. Arrive early to marvel at the coastlines and nearby views.
