Oh be still, my beating heart – she’s back! Over the last few evenings, Tasmanians have been heading buoyantly out into the night, lured by the vibrant dancing lady herself. The ethereal glow of the Aurora Australis has been bathing our quiet corners in vivid greens, pinks and purples, as the Southern Lights dance and laugh amongst the star-filled night sky. And we are as enchanted as ever!

To continue the love affair until her next visit, please enjoy the following images taken on the evenings of the 27th and 28th of March 2017. Thanks for sharing your enthralling captures with #HobartandBeyond – we can’t wait to see more!
