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. :-)ReplyDelete

Love the last photo of the ferry--it looks like it could be on the wall in a Chinese restaurant. Lovely scene!ReplyDelete
I love that first photo!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
It seems like we missed this part of Tasmania completely. Next time!ReplyDelete
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!)ReplyDelete
What a great way to view the shore line. Love the reflection .ReplyDelete
Beautiful images, Stewart! I love the red canoe. It provides wonderful contrast in your image.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
I missed this post and then saw there was a part II so came back to find part I. Lovely lake. What a beautiful place to enjoy some time off!ReplyDelete
