A group of mates have their senses and minds ignited by the glory of Tasmania’s first national park.

In the depths of Melbourne lockdown, amid fiercely competitive games of 500 conducted weekly over Zoom, a heavenly vision took shape. Four mates, a ute full of camping gear, and the breathtaking trails of Tasmania at our feet. You find us in the back end of our trip, where, for the first time, after three weeks along the eastern-then-southern coastline, with their otherworldly capes, immense estuaries and spectacular beaches, we finally ventured inland.
