After flying into Melaleuca in South West Tasmania the pilot swapped from flying the plane to driving a boat for a trip down the creek and into Bathurst Harbour. He was also a very knowledgable guide and set out a good lunch. Along the Narrows and Bathurst Channel which lead to Port Davey and the open ocean are lots of isolated white sand beaches. Our lunch stop was at his peaceful beach in Bramble Cove just before Port Davey where the waters were coloured brown by the tea trees (Leptospermum). Deeper waters look almost black.
The top metre or so of Bathurst Harbour is fresh water with the deeper parts being extremely cold salt water.

nie the view of this well hidden small sandy beach from the curious eyes, with the trees to approach so close to the sea.I like the good light and colour management as the beauty of the place.

Have a nice Sunday.

Great looking sheltered beach. I like the way those bushes reach towards open air. What a getaway!

This is pleasantly hidden beach with a a great lush vegetation around it. There is a strange, somewhat violet, light here, I wonder if this is natural to Tasmania or where the conditions that day so strange?
have a good sunday
