Are you still deciding whether to rock a bikini at a beach this summer, or visit historical places? If that’s the case, then you’ll be relieved to know that you can do both.
James Meeker, a travel enthusiast, and photojournalist has visited 43 countries to date. Traveling across the world and experiencing diverse cultures propelled him to pursue it as something more than a hobby or recreational activity. He has turned it into his lifestyle, and is currently exploring the land down under.
If you’re also looking forward to traveling to Tasmania soon, we curated a list of the top 3 places you can check out this summer of 2021.
Bay of Fires
The Bay of Fire is an amazing holiday destination with absolutely pristine beaches. The surprising fact about them is the magnificent boulders covered with striking orange lichen, alongside the white beaches. The lichens give them the fire aesthetic and hence the beach is popularly known as the ‘Bay of Fires.’ James captures the serenity of these beaches in the most alluring form. Check out his Instagram posts to virtually visit these places.
Port Arthur, Historic Site, Tasmania
While exploring this village, you will be amazed to learn about the historical significance this place holds. The entry ticket allows you to traverse through the town for 2 consecutive days. You will get to see the Arthur gallery, with an interactive display that tells the story of the Port Arthur Historic site and its people. Along with that, you can enjoy the waters with a Harbour Cruise. Level up your Instagram feed aesthetic, as you capture the eccentric ruins, restored houses, heritage gardens, and walking trails.
Hillwood Berry Farmgate
One of the best parts of being on vacation during the summer is eating farm-fresh fruits and making exotic drinks. Hillwood Berry Farmgate is the perfect place to do that. They are an iconic, family-owned pick-your-own-berry farm in Australia. You can experience the orchids and huge farms lined up with berry plants. They also encourage visitors to pick berries for themselves and explore the berry cafe.
