Aurora in Tasmania

Just noticed Greg's post about aurora in Iceland and got me thinking. Probably going to Tasmania for the first time this September, down near Hobart. What's the chance of aurora then/there? Good spots to view/capture from close to Hobart?

Head South, as far as you can. check here: http://www.aurora-service.net/aurora-forecast/,

...for aurora activity. Its pretty common down here but depends, of course, on solar activity, moon and where you are located.

Plenty of chances provided sol co-operates. Join the Aurora Australis Tasmania group and take in some of the images that have been submitted.
