Wild Tasmania

From Tasmanian Devils and baby Wombats to jumping dolphins and swimming with seals, episode two of “Travel Deeper Australia” is now live, and it’s all about the wildlife of Tasmania! I spent 10 days exploring the beautiful and wild island south of mainland Australia, and I can honestly say, it has been my favorite Australian experience to date. As I …
