    Wineglass Bay - Freycinet Nationalpark

    September 5 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

    Our last hike of took us to Wineglass Bay. We could chose between a hike to the lookout and beach or to the Amos mountain. I chose the first option because I have a cold, but if I am ever in Tasmania again, I will definitely stay longer and climb the Amos mountain as well. Both hikes are breathtaking.Read more

    Freycinet National Park / Mt. Amos

    December 16, 2016 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 26 °C

    Diese Bergtour war mal was anderes. Kurzweilig ging es mit leichter Kletterei über Boulderblöcke und schöne Reibungs-Platten die gut 400 Höhenmeter nach oben. Am Gipfel wurde man dann mit einer tollen Aussicht auf die Wineglass Bay belohnt.

    Freycinet NP

    February 6 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

    Die letzten Tage haben wir im Freycinet NP verbracht. Einfach nur traumhaft, leider touristisch sehr erschlossen. Wir haben versucht etwas dagegenzuhalten. Camp nur per Allradantrieb zu erreichen, Walks nur die, die der geneigte Chinese nicht schafft. Hat ganz gut funktioniert. Nun sitzen wir in Richmond, geduscht und mit prallem Bauch. Morgen geht's nach HobartRead more

    Wineglass Beach

    February 19, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Classée parmi les plus belles plages du monde de par sa forme parfaite et son sable blanc, la Wineglass Beach ne nous a pas franchement époustouflés (et l'eau gelée). Elle est jolie, certes, et a au moins le mérite de nous avoir motivé pour une rando sympa d'une journée.

    On a été choqué par le nombre d'arbres morts sur des zones très étendues, dans une bonne partie de la Tasmanie. Ce serait dû à une terrible sécheresse qui sévit depuis plus de 4 ans.Read more

    Wineglass Bay (finally a) Walk

    February 4, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Am Nachmittag war endlich eine kleine Wanderung angesagt, nämlich die zur berühmten Wineglass Bay 👍. Ein leichter, vor allem Treppenlastiger Aufstieg trennte uns vom Aussichtspunkt, wo wir auf einem versteckten Felsvorsprung unsere Fotos für die Ewigkeit machen konnten.
    Auf der Weiterfahrt hielten wir dann noch mal wieder mitten im nirgendwo bei einer süßen, kleinen Manufaktur für Eis, Schokolade und Marmelade. Für nur 5$ gab es leckeres und besonderes Lavendel- und Boysenberry-Eis und auch alle anderen Produkte durften kostenfrei probiert werden 🤗. Yummi 😎.Read more

    Wineglass Bay

    February 2, 2017 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    Heute waren wir beachen ☺.
    Der Strand in der Wineglass Bay zählt zu den 10 schönsten Stränden der Welt. Am Strand waren nur seeehr wenige Menschen...richtig gut und entspannend. Der Strand ist nur mit einem Schiff oder durch einen Bushwalk von über einer Stunde zu erreichen. Für den schönen Ausblick, den weißen Sand und das herrlich klare Wasser hat es sich auf jeden Fall gelohnt. Unten am Strand haben wir das gute Wetter genossen und uns schön die Sonne auf den Bauch scheinen lassen ☺. Leider war das Wasser doch etwas frischer als erwartet. Vom Strand haben wir sogar eine Gruppe Delfine gesehen...voll toll 😊.Read more

    Freycinet National Park

    November 3, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 8 °C

    Freycinet National Park is one of Tasmania's oldest , best known , and most loved national park.
    It is characterized by rugged granite mountains, coastal forests and fine white beaches. One of these beaches is the famous Wineglass Bay and is a arc of talc-white sand fringed with clear waters. The walk to the lookout is not quite a lazy stroll as you have to make a steep climb to the top. Unfortunately we also had to deal with mother nature who decided to give us a generous rain soak, and due to heavy cloud cover our view was not post card perfect but still amazing !Read more

    day 3 - mount amos

    March 3, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    We did woke up a bit later than planned but we have time so. In the morning we drove around 2 and a half hour to Coles Bay. Up there we did the hike to mount amos to have an awsome view. It took us1:15 to get up. Total climb was 465 meters. And decent we did in 45 min. So that was not to bad. It was definitely a good exercise! When we went up there were some clouds but once a while we had an clear view and it was stunning! We also had lunch on top of the mountain.

    At the end we drove around 1 hour to a campsite and made dinner and put up our camp. Unfortunately it rained a bit when we came there but after a while it was dry so pretty good. Only thing was that there are clouds and if there weren't we probably could see the southern lights even better than yesterday. But it's okay

    day 10 - wineglass Bay And MONA

    March 10, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    We went out of bed a bit earlier than the rest of the trip. After arriving on the bottom of Mount amos we packed our stuff and wrote our names in a hikers registration book. It took us 1 hour to climb all the way to the top of the mountain. Then we enjoyed the amazing view! I filmed the hike down.ill post the video later.

    On our way back to Hobart we had lunch and drove over a spiky bride. At the airport we had to say goodbye and our trip was unfortunately finished. At the end she was a real easy and good travelmate!

    In the late afternoon I went to the MONA (museum of old and new art) in Hobart. It was a cool museum! Saw a lot of inspiring and weird things.

    After my domino's pizza I drove 70 km north to the cheapest fuel station of tasmania. Price was 1,28 compared to 1,37 - 1,46 so thats a lot. Average was around 1,40. After I filled up a bit I drove to a campsite 100km from cradle mountain. Because it was late I had to drive almost 1,5 hour in the dark. I saw a lot of wildlife, 4 walibi's, a deer, a Tasmanian devil a bird and 6 possums, I had unfortunately one roadkill. No idea what it was but I guess a possum.
    I drove around 40 km behind a local. Because he drove way to fast for a traveler. And he knew the way. I even had a hard time to keep up with him. But he had special big lights on his car so if I would follow I would hit an animal and can drive as fast as him. At the end I was all in 1 piece on the campspot.
