    Strahan to Burnie

    April 19, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Headed out to do the 179km trip to Burnie through forest and lovely farmland via a lovely old mining town called
    Zeehan, visited a reserve and walked through a disused rail tunnel remnants of the mine.
    On to Rosebery to visit the Stitt River Falls very fast flowing with overhead bridge belonging to the mine close by.
    On to Burnie where we visited a fern land reserve to see platypus playing - not in a playful mood today- we didn’t see any but Jeanette presented me with a 20cent coin with has Platypus on it so I wouldn’t feel deprived, ha ha! Saw wallabies hopping around though.
    Our accommodation for two nights is across the road from the beach near the penguin colony.
    Heading out to Stanley today.

    Stanley and in-between

    April 19, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Wow, what a day. Headed to Stanley, stopped at Wynyard for breakfast, have never eaten so much bacon in one helping🍳🍳went into Table Cape Geological Site to visit the Lighthouse. We walked along the coast for a couple of km’s, had to walk off breakfast!!!
    Carried on to Boat Harbour, a delightful bay with many bach’s and a beautiful beach.
    Reached Stanley, to find a quaint village with beautifully kept old buildings.
    Our goal was to go up ‘The Nut’ a 143m ‘hill’. My aim was to get the chairlift up and walk down-ha ha, being Good Friday it was closed🤪so we walked up, man was it steep it nearly killed me but we did it and then did the two km circuit around the top. So pleased we did it, amazing views. I probably won’t be able to walk tomorrow!! 13400 steps, 51 floors, 9.5km’s not bad for the day.
    Returned via Wynyard to order scallops and chips from the fish shop on the wharf and sit there to eat them as the sun set.

    Wir haben es uns nicht entgehen lassen, am Abend nach Sonnenuntergang noch die kleinen Pinguine anzuschauen. Die Kolonie hier umfasst 1600 Tiere.

    Weekend at Burnie

    The weather gradually improved as we arrived in Burnie. We saw paper made from wombat poo but didn't see any penguins. Very disappointing!
