Touring in Tassie

We are having a quick pre Christmas break in Tasmania  this week. We have no plans  other than to see the western part of Tasmania that we didn’t see on our last trip.

We left  Melbourne on a little Dash 8 (much to Jill’s discomfort) and arrived in Devonport tonight at 5.00 pm. WE are staying at the same Sunrise hotel  that we have used  for our previous couple of  hiking trips through Cradle Mountain the one where David had us up an hour early to  catch a plane and where we sat on the nature strip at 4.00 am rather than 5.00 waiting for a taxi. Well, we won’t need to do  that tomorrow.

Tonight we will go down to the pub by the river for dinner and then tomorrow decide just where we will go – probably west to Stanley.

Corinna – Part Two

Our second night at Corinna was very clear. The temperature was mild and the stars in the sky shone like diamonds. I managed to get a reasonable photo of the milky way between the trees near our cabin. Going back inside, I spied a number of little wallabies eating the grass and some possums sitting […]
