📍Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens
Just had a chill day out, although the walk to the gardens did tire me out. Also a wonder around Hobart before heading back to the mainland too.

📍MONA - Museum of Old and New Art
Famous for the weird and wonderful, aka the wall of vaginas. Some stuff was questionable tho. For example, the bowl with the fish and knife in took 11 years to think up. 11 years!!! Amelie mentioned that this can't have been the original as fish can't live that long 😂. And of course, we had to see the pooping machine - fed at 11am and 4pm, then defecates at 2pm.

📍Mount Field National Park
Russel falls 👌
A short easy walk, which was a nice change. Much better than all of the other waterfalls that we had seen on this trip.

📍Lake Burbury foreshore rest area
Stopped here for the night, beautiful setting mind. Perfect place to relax, have a couple of mugs of goon and have a chit chat.
TONS of mossies ... legs swollen up like massive tree trunks.
📍Cradle Mountain-Lake Saint Clair National Park
Magnificent views from Cradle Mountain!!! Cannot believe how stunning it is.
We walked on the main track, where we pasted Dove lake, Wombat Poo and up to Marion's lookout to see Crater lake. Wasn't what I thought it was going to be like, however the views from the walk up was amazing. Also saw loads of lizards (not sure what they are) on the walk back down.
Emily mentioned that she saw wombats on the Overland track, so me and Elisa insisted on walking that track just til we saw a wild wombat. Result ... wombat selfies 📸
📍Devils @ cradle
Introducing the famous, the extremely rare, the one and only ... Tasmanian devils 👏👏👏
... and the spotted quolls which are super cute. The main objective of our trip has been achieved.

📍Bay of fires
Obviously we had to stop here! It's in the top 10 things to do in tassie. It was chill here. Tranquil. The orange bands that coloured the rocks was stunning against the turquoise waters. Looks like a place you only see in travel magazines.
📍Cape Tourville lighthouse
E C H I D N A !
📍Freycinet National Park
A 4am hike to watch the sunset rise at Wineglass bay 🌅. I think the pictures speak for themselves, as well as the pain in my legs for the hike from the bay back up to the car park.

📍The friendly beaches campsite
Joined by a couple of wallabies and one had a baby. Too cute! During the night, it was so windy and bloody freezing all night!!! Did have abit of goon to warm us up before we went to sleep. However, two of us had no camping mat and one had forgotten a sleeping bag, plus we wanted to get up early to see the sunset. So overall, I loved it and had a fantastic time !!
Elisa mentioned this place and we were all game to explore as much as possible. Honestly the most beautiful place I've seen so far ... stunning!!! Crystal clear waters, sandy beaches and a picturesque landscape. Favourite place in the world 😍.
📍The remarkable cave.
This is named so because when you look through the cave, the far opening is supposedly meant to look like the shape of Tasmania.
Start of the tassie road trip 👏🚗
📍The pickled frog
So found these girls on Facebook, not exactly the safest way to meet but we were all glad that none of us weren't mass murderers. Therefore I shall introduce Elisa (German), Emily (Russian German) and Amelie (French Canadian). We are gonna try and tackle seeing Tasmania in 5 days ... it's going to be abit of a stretch.
