Cape Huay, Tasmania

Wineglass Bay had spoiled us.  We found ourselves thinking we’d had hit the apex and that it wouldn’t get any better. We were wrong. Cape Huay is a vast coastline of sea cliffs that tower up to 1000ft above the sea. This is the home of the Totem Pole, a needle-thin spire that is completely surrounded by water. It is only 10ft across at its thickest point but it rise 250ft in the air. We crept to the edge for miles, stopping occasionally to anxiously crawl to the edge. A pod of dolphins swam beneath us at one point.

Hats off Tasmania, we surrender.
