Visit the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA), an avant-garde museum that's a work of art in itself. Stroll through the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens or take a scenic drive to the summit of Mount Wellington for panoramic views of the city and surrounding landscapes.

With views like these over the dock, there's no reason to stay in your hotel room any longer than you have to.

Bay of Fires destination, Tasmania

Bay of Fires

Tasmania's Bay of Fires is a coastal paradise, where fiery orange lichen-covered boulders contrast with the crystal-clear waters of the Tasman Sea. This breathtaking stretch of coastline offers not only stunning vistas but also a chance to immerse yourself in the serenity of nature.

Whether you're beach-combing, kayaking, or simply strolling along the pristine beaches, the Bay of Fires is a place where you can reconnect with the natural world. Photographers delight in taking in the splendour as the first light of dawn ignites the blaze of fire this bay is named for, however with many isolated nooks along this coastline, there's plenty of space for everyone.

Take time to wander in this timeless example of the overwhelming purity nature wants to provide.

Freycinet National Park

Freycinet National Park, located on Tasmania's east coast, is a coastal paradise that's often overlooked by travellers. The park is known for its pristine beaches, dramatic granite peaks, and crystal-clear waters. One of its most iconic features is Wineglass Bay, a stunning curve of sand that's consistently ranked among the world's top beaches.

A hike to the Wineglass Bay lookout along beautiffully built stone paths and stairs rewards you with breathtaking panoramic views of this coastal wonder.

A little know secret - a hidden diversion from the path back to the parking area from the Wineglass Bay lookout will expose a beautifully built reclining spot with incredible views under a rocky outcrop. Will you find it? PicTrax helps people find places like these...

The Neck, Bruny Island

Bruny Island - A Food Lover's Paradise

Just a short ferry ride from the mainland, Bruny Island is a food lover's paradise. This idyllic island is home to boutique wineries, artisanal cheese producers, and oyster farms.

Indulge in fresh seafood, sample locally crafted cheeses, and savor award-winning wines as you explore the culinary delights of Bruny Island. Don't forget to visit The Neck, a narrow isthmus connecting the north and south of the island, offering stunning views of the surrounding waters from the top of the elevated lookout.

It should be noted that an early ferry will allow you to access these destinations in business hours. Accommodation on the island may be more expensive than the mainland.

The Huon Valley

Nestled in Tasmania's south, the Huon Valley is a region of abundant natural beauty and bountiful harvests. This fertile valley is a tapestry of orchards, vineyards, and rolling farmland, where the verdant landscape meets the pristine waters of the Huon River. It's a place where the pace of life is unhurried, and the connection to the land is deep-rooted.

Explore the valley's charming towns, like Cygnet and Franklin, where local artisans craft exquisite products, from handmade chocolates to artisanal cheeses. Taste the bounty of the valley at roadside stalls and farmers' markets, where you can sample farm-fresh apples, cherries, and berries.

Whether you're exploring the historic Wooden Boat Centre in Franklin or hiking along the Tahune Airwalk, the Huon Valley is a destination where nature and culture harmonize in perfect balance, leaving you with lasting memories of Tasmania's generous spirit.

Port Arthur Historic Site

Step back in time at the Port Arthur Historic Site, a place that preserves the dark but important history of Australia's convict past. This UNESCO World Heritage-listed site offers a glimpse into the lives of the convicts who were once imprisoned here, as well as the free settlers who called this place home. Explore the well-preserved buildings, manicured gardens, and haunting prison cells as you uncover the stories of the past. Wander the grounds and take in the crumbling ruins, cramped, cold stone cells and be transported into a world where stealing a loaf of bread had truly life-changing consequences. The Port Arthur tours expose haunting tales of hardship and cruelty, desperation, escape and recapture as convicts took desperate measures to escape the incredibly harsh conditions. Search this area on PicTrax for more tap-to-go destinations.

Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens

For those seeking a more tranquil experience, the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens in Hobart offer a botanical paradise that's both serene and enchanting. Spread over 14 hectares, these gardens are a living tapestry of Tasmania's diverse plant life. Stroll along meandering pathways that lead you through themed gardens, from the tranquil Japanese Garden to the vibrant Conservatory filled with exotic blooms. The Botanical Gardens are not just a feast for the eyes; they're also a testament to Tasmania's commitment to preserving and showcasing its unique flora. Among the many highlights are the collection of ancient Wollemi pines, which have been around since the time of the dinosaurs, and the Subantarctic Plant House, a rare opportunity to see plants from some of the world's most remote and inhospitable places. Search this area on PicTrax for more tap-to-go destinations.

Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park

Nestled in the heart of Tasmania, Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park is a wilderness wonderland that beckons adventurers and nature enthusiasts alike. The park is a mosaic of rugged mountain ranges, ancient rain forests, and serene alpine lakes. As you embark on a trek through this pristine wilderness, you'll be greeted by the iconic Cradle Mountain - its jagged peaks pierce the sky, creating a dramatic backdrop for your hike. While travelling through the heart of the Tasmanian wilderness, you'll find an artistic masterpiece that transcends time and space - The Wall. This monumental sculpture, carved by artist Greg Duncan, is an homage to the pioneering spirit of Tasmania's highlands etched into the region's noted fin grained timber, the Huon pine. Each 3 meter high panel is carved with scenes that depict the history and beauty of the Central Highlands, with a level of detail that will amaze and enthrall. The Wall is a work of art like no other - where the past comes to life through the skillful hands of the artist.

Frequently asked questions - PicTrax

Here you’ll find the answers to several frequently asked questions, designed to help you learn more about PicTrax and how to get the most from it. This section will grow as more questions are added, so if you don’t see an answer to a question you have, ask us in in our contact form at the bottom of this page and we will do our best to answer you.

Upload images to PicTrax from your mobile device:
1/ Tap on the ‘upload’ icon (plus button). You will find this button in the centre of the bottom navigation bar. PicTrax should open your mobile phone or tablet’s gallery.
NOTE: PicTrax may open your phone’s file structure. If that occurs, simply navigate to your device’s image gallery and album or sub folder.

2/ Tap on the image you wish to upload.
NOTE: We suggest ‘favouriting’ or ‘liking’ images in your gallery or saving to a specific folder for easy location. This helps save time later.

3/ If the selected image contains GPS metadata, the image will automatically be pinned to the capture location. If the GPS metadata is missing or incorrect, you can search for a landmark close to the capture location, and navigate to where you were standing by standard pinch zoom control. When the capture location has been found, tap the map to pin the location.

4/ Fill in the required info fields, or you may choose to change the image.

5/ When the upload form is complete, hit  ‘Save’ and your image will be uploaded to the private or public location as chosen.

NOTE: Navigating away from this window during the upload process may cause the upload to break.

6/ You will then be taken to your image’s ‘detail view’ where you may check the image, mapped location and info for accuracy, edit the information, make public (or private) or delete the image, or leave it as is.

Make money from PicTrax in three easy steps:

  1. Upload a travel pic you’ve taken of a worthwhile destination to PicTrax.
    NOTE: Images with embedded GPS metadata will be automatically pinned to their GPS capture location. If this is incorrect or not available, you can manually pin the image by navigating to the place you were when you took the pic, and tapping the map to pin the image.
  2. Tel friends and family to like your pics. Encouraging follows will increase likes.
  3. Go to your profile and you will see that your earnings have increased by the current ‘Like Action Value’. This will vary from time to time. You can check the current ‘Like Action Value’ here.

When your credits reach (AUD)$20 you can cash it in from the redeem your earnings page.

What can you do to increase your earnings further?

Encourage friends and family to follow you in PicTrax and like your pix. Each time a unique user likes one of your pix, your earnings grow. During promo events, the Like Action Value will increase. It will be particularly beneficial to gain as many likes as you can during bonus promo events!

Absolutely not! At PicTrax, we are ‘Team You’. The platform was built to assist people in the following ways;

  1. Increased awareness of the world and where to find amazing destinations.
  2. Making money from ‘Like Actions’.
  3. Opening an avenue for personal image sales to a potential global audience – via the ability to include a URL to your own online presence in the comments section.

PicTrax has no interest in claiming ownership of user uploaded images, however one or more user images may be seen in on screen video and screenshots taken for promotional purposes.

At PicTrax, we have taken steps to protect your rights by:

  1. Preventing images from being copied, downloaded or taken by screenshot. Images taken via screenshot will have a PicTrax watermark that will prevent the image from being used commercially.
  2. Requiring the uploading user to declare they have copyrights to the image.
  3. Allowing an avenue for reporting in the case that a user does upload an image that they do not have copyrights to.

If you would like to crop, enhance or otherwise edit an image prior to uploading to PicTrax, it is worth noting that some image editing apps will erase the GPS metadata.

We consistently use Snapseed for image enhancement prior to upload as this app retains the GPS metadata AND saves enhanced pix to a created Snapseed gallery folder/album, which allows for easy retrieval in the upload process.

There may be many other image editing apps that retain GPS metadata – please test on one image before committing to any specific image editing app.

Your personal information will not be retained by PicTrax so therefore it cannot be sold to a third party.

PicTrax does serve advertising. In some instances the advertising platform may match your device ID and match it with ad content that it considers relevant to your profile in their existing records.

PicTrax may use your email address to;

  • Communicate system information – you cannot unsubscribe from this as these communications may be required by law, i.e. updated terms of service notification in compliance with changes in legislation.

PicTrax may also use your email address to;

  • Advise of bonus ‘Like Action Value’ periods, or milestones in earnings, likes or other user to user activity.
  • PicTrax may also use your email address to communicate new developed features.

You will of course be able to unsubscribe from these emails.

If you are attempting to upload content in a low or intermittent data environment, the upload may break, showing a partial upload. If this occurs, please delete the image and try again at a later date, in a stronger data environment.

If the uploading device is disrupted through; going into ‘sleep mode’, moving away from the upload screen during upload, accepting a call during upload, the image may fail to upload correctly.

If this does occur, please open the image to detail view and use the elipsis menu in the top right of the image pane to delete the image, and attempt upload at another time.

Yes, in both iOS and Android devices, you will have the ability to apply a ‘heart’ to, or ‘favourite’ an image.

This will place the image in a ‘favourites’ folder which will be much easier to access than scrolling through years’ of photos to find the one you wish to upload.

Using the Snapseed app to enhance your images is a great way to separate your enhanced pix from the rest as Snapseed can save the enhanced pix to a Snapseed folder or album.

Manually moving images to a new folder for upload is another way to separate the images you wish to upload to PicTrax.

Many professional photographers have beautiful images they may wish to share on the PicTrax app.

In order to upload these images to PicTrax, the user must be able to get the images onto their mobile phone or tablet. Here are a few methods we can endorse:

Note: We advise saving images to a new folder/album created to receive these images or it may be difficult to locate them within your phone’s image collection.

Users may only delete any images that they themselves have uploaded.

Here you can:

  • Upload or change your profile photo
  • Tap in the editable fields and make changes to your details.

NOTE: Changing username may not be permitted if the username has been taken by another user.

Your image’s GPS meta data may be incorrect due to a number of factors such as;

  • Satellite coverage may have been insufficient at the time of capture, causing the mobile phone or GPS-enabled digital SLR camera to record incorrect data.
  • Your mobile phone’s position may have been determined by mobile phone towers which may have used a ‘triangulation’ method to determine your position at time of capture. This method of location mapping is less accurate than satellite positioning and any resultant images may not be placed correctly on the map.

NOTE: PicTrax advises users to routinely check their images info to make sure the image placement is accurate while in the field to ensure images captured will be placed correctly when uploading to PicTrax.

If your image is not automatically pinned on the the map on upload , it generally means your image’s GPS meta data may be missing or the uploading device’s privacy settings may prevent pinning. This can happen due to a number of factors such as;

  • The image has been saved to a device instead of having been taken with the device.
  • The device may have GPS location services disabled or may not be capable of capturing GPS location data.
  • The image has been saved from a social media account may have had the information erased in submitting to that platform.
  • The image is not an appropriate file type and has been removed by PicTrax admin staff.
  • The image is a screenshot and not an original capture.
  • The metadata may have been stripped by an image editing app such as Photoshop or Lightroom

Inappropriate content
If your image was reported for inappropriate content, your image will be reviewed by PicTrax admin staff and either removed from the platform if the image fails to meet PicTrax’s acceptable publishing standards, or made private, if deemed to be inappropriate for public viewing.
NOTE: No user action is required and no correspondence will be entered into after PicTrax admin action has been taken.

Breach of copyright
If your image was reported for breach of copyright, PicTrax admin staff will investigate the matter.
NOTE: To protect users from ‘internet trolls’, repeated and unfounded reporting may result in the reporting user’s account being deleted.

NOTE: PicTrax admin staff may contact both the user and the reporter to determine the most likely image copyright ownership status. Once PicTrax – through any investigative method deemed appropriate or necessary within Australian law – has determined the most likely owner, the image in question will be removed from the non-owner’s account and no further correspondence will be entered into.

Inaccurate location
If your image was reported for inaccurate location, your image may be made private to ensure other PicTrax users are not directed to wrong locations.
NOTE: No user action is required and no correspondence will be entered into after PicTrax admin action has been taken.
NOTE: No user action is required and no correspondence will be entered into after PicTrax admin action has been taken.

Poor quality or composition
If your image was reported for poor quality or composition, your image may be made private so that you may continue to enjoy your image while maintaining an enjoyable in-app experience for other PicTrax users.
NOTE: No user action is required and no correspondence will be entered into after PicTrax admin action has been taken.
NOTE: PicTrax users, through the acceptance of PicTrax Terms of Service, have agreed to abide by PicTrax acceptable use parameters and multiple breaches or numerous nuisance reporting as well as multiple breaches of PicTrax usage guidelines may see that users’ profile deleted from the platform and potentially banned from PicTrax with no further correspondence being entered into.

PicTrax needs the GPS location data (automatically stored in many digital images taken on mobile phones and or cameras) in order to plot the image on the global map so that others may discover the location for themselves, or so that you can plot your private journeys on a global map.

This is the true purpose of PicTrax and images that are not of destination specific subject matter may be removed from the platform.

What data does PicTrax collect from digital images?

PicTrax will access and use the following info from images you upload to the platform to help other users be able to find the location and replicate the image’s capture conditions. These include:

  • Time of capture
  • Date of capture
  • Device used (mobile phone or digital SLR make and model)
  • Device photographic settings at time of capture, ISO, f stop etc.
  • GPS Longitude recorded at time of capture
  • GPS Latitude recorded at time of capture
  • Device orientation at time of capture

There are several reasons an image may be removed from PicTrax after upload. These can include;
1/ Lack of copyright
2/ Inappropriate or explicit content
3/ Poor composition
4/ Non destination specific subject matter

Note: This platform differs from Instagram in its destination specific nature. For this reason, uploaded pictures of people, food, animals or objects that are not destination specific and do not add to the travel and photographic exploration experience for other users may be deleted from the platform.
