Chris's adventure in Tasmania, Australia


2 March 2017

Home finally and the sunset that greeted us was unbelievable and makes you realize no matter how far you travel, home is a very special place!

Our last full day in Tassie and beside traveling from Cradle Mountain to Ross which is a beautiful little town where we will spend our last night, we also went to Sheffield 'Tassies mural town' and had a scallop pie, and then onto Ross for the world's best vanilla slice and to the local for a pint - not a bad day!
What a fantastic day in cradle mountain, a smorgasbord for the eyes and the soul. Met lovely people such as Sam who kept us company down one leg of the walk - she was a young Canadian from Thunder Bay, Ontario!

Yesterday was a long day and we spent it traveling from lake st Clair to the other end of cradle mountain. Queens town Wa an incredible site as the topography was amazing! We went through some incredibly winding roads and are pretty spent today so are taking it easy and doing only a half day walk today.

Tonight we are staying in the gorgeous Huon Valley where we are being lullabied by ducks cows and the promise of the glimpse of a platypus while being surrounded on all sides - literally - by mountains - wow what a trip!
Day 3 Port Arthur - beautiful and eerie

Wow day 1 and it took us 8 hours to travel 59k - so much beauty in such a small space! Oyster stout for pre dinner drinks and the fresh oysters turned kilpatrick followed by some locally grown veg! Loving life!!
The best coffee spot in Tassie?
Day I in Tasmania and we have found heaven - Taryn heaven that is - a retro cafe that sells - wait - lactose free cappuccinos and gluten free toasties but on the way we picked up a dozen fresh tassy oysters for dinner for $12!!! Yummo
