The Pieman River

The Pieman River is just under 100km long and flows into the ocean on the west coast of Tasmania.

While the river is splendid in these lower sections it has been damed, like many other Tasmanian rivers,  to generate Hydro-electricity in its upper reaches.

We took two trips along the Pieman, one under our own power and one on a tour boat. As you can that the weather was not exactly postcard perfect - with Tassie Sunshine falling from the sky at regular intervals.

More shots from the Pieman to follow on Friday.




We stayed in a place called Corinna, where a ferry crosses the river.


You can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

Hmm. . . the pie-man, you say. Makes me think we need to stop for dessert. :-)

Love the first shot. Everyone's outdoor trips are making me wish for a winter vacation, just to get out of this house for a few days. :)
Have a lovely week!

Love the last photo of the ferry--it looks like it could be on the wall in a Chinese restaurant. Lovely scene!

Hi Stewart, i love the color of that canoe and the serenity of the place. If you are still in Tasmania, i almost reached the margins of the Tasmanian strait, haha. I did the Milford Sound cruise in Queenstown, NZ and it was really great. If there will be another chance i will say yes the first minute.

It seems like we missed this part of Tasmania completely. Next time!
Happy travels

Wonderful images Stewart - am still trying to pluck up the courage to get into a canoe/kayak (more worried about getting my camera wet than anything else!)

From your fantastic photos, it looks like a great area. Every time I think about going to your amazing country, I realize that I would need several months to see what I want to.
