    The Nut

    December 10, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 12 °C

    The Nut ist eine riesige freigewitterte Magmakammer die als Tafelberg bei Stanley 143m hoch aus dem Meer herausragt.
    Es gibt hier sogar einen Sessellift für 10 $ einfache Fahrt😨. Zu Fuss hoch dauert der zwar wirklich steile, aber kurze Aufstieg 10 min.
    Falls man den Sessellift benutzt, hat man sage und schreibe einen Zeitgewinn von ganzen 2 Minuten😅.Read more

    Smithton

    March 2, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    After leaving Devonport we travelled west along the coast passing through Ulverstone, Penguin, Burnie and Wynyard each having great coastal views although not many beaches as it’s mainly a rocky coast.
    We stopped off at the Tasmanian Pickled onion factory.
    We filled up with fresh water at Penguin which allows us to stay off grid longer, (we drink bottled water so the tank water is for washing up and showering).
    We finished this trip at Smithton to stay for the next 3 nights at the Tall Timbers free camp there are strict rules here about being self contained, nothing must be allowed to drain onto the site but we are set up for this with our grey water tank.

    Stanley 2.5

    March 7, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Just because it’s there it must be climbed!! So I saw the Nut and therefore I climbed it! Well actually I walked up it but man was it a steep walk, I’ve seen sides of buildings that were less steep.
    So after 3 stops on the way up and my heart nearly bursting out of my chest I finally made it to the top where there are some lovely views on a 2kms loop trail.
    After finishing the trail comes the descent which although easier on the heart is a bit of a strain on the calf muscles as well as being quite slippery.

    Stanley 2.8

    March 8, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

    Last night we went down to the penguin viewing platform at around dusk hoping to see the little penguins come ashore, well after an hour or so there was a crowd of eager visitors then a ranger came along and the first thing he did was tell me I had picked the only spot where I should not park our car, so off I went to move it ! The ranger came along as he wanted to move his car into that spot. It seems that the Penguins have been known hide under cars that park there and he worries about them getting squashed if the driver does not notice them before driving away.
    On the way back to the viewing platform I asked him where would be the best spot to view them, to which his answer was you probably won’t see any as they are already ashore in their burrows as its their moulting season. So I collected Kay and went back to the caravan disappointed that yet another native creature has evaded us.
    This morning we took one last drive around town emptied the cassette filled up the tanks with water, Kay bought a tea towel as a souvenir then set off to our next stop.

    Stanley

    December 12, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Staying in a caravan park for a few nights as the guys want to go surfing somewhere ( which is a day trip - not a 2 hr trip) and we can entertain and contain the kids easier at a caravan park. This town is so quiet and gorgeous- cottages everywhere and 'the nut' mountain in the background.
