I stayed at Coles Bay over the long weekend at Freycinet Sanctuary. The units are in a great location on the foreshore. It was a brilliant weekend and I got some of the best shots I’ve ever done there: lots of images from around the region of things to do and see, along with some of the wildlife. I was pleased to get some good Sea Eagle shots too, my Holy Grail as they are hard to capture!
