  • Day14

    Tassie

    May 9 in Australia ⋅ 🌧 13 °C

    We woke up from the lights on the ferry and found our way out of the harbour an hour later. A coffee shop kept us warm and dry while finishing some work, and still in the city we rebuild our food storage and shopped for the Tasmanian early winter.
    Finally, after an afternoon brekkie, we hit the road again. Didn't make it that far, though, but found a spot for rainy camping east of Devonport.Read more

    Leaving Tassie

    May 22 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Finishing Tassie as we started, we made an attempt for shopping in a very small shopping street before getting stuff down from the roof again to go into the ferry back to the main land.
    Driving in Tasmania is all about finding a way with only fes unsealed roads and avoiding animals and roadkills on the road. It's easy to find places to park overnight, but drinking water taps are rare. Besides mountains and national parks, the island were a lot of cold and early mornings, beautiful skies, wildlife, convict history, and long drives with Spanish lessons.Read more

    Abschied von Tasmanien

    February 14 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    How fast time passed away....
    We are back to Devonport, where our Tasmania trip started 4 weeks ago. Now it's time to say goodbye. Due to bushfires and weather conditions we couldn't see everything that we wanted to, but what we saw was outstanding beautiful.

    Devonport day 2

    March 2 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    We had another look around Devonport today and we noticed that they have a triathlon on this weekend so I’m a bit bummed out as I would have liked to have given it ago but as we are moving on tomorrow I can’t shame.
    We visited the lighthouse and Don’s head and took some more photos
    The brakes on the van don’t seem to be working correctly so I took a wheel off and sent a photo of the brakes to the guy that serviced it, he assures me that they will be ok till we get back, hope he is right!!!!Read more

    Devonport

    October 24, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 12 °C

    Arrived in Devonport at 5.30am. Waiting to disembark at 6.45am
    After a smooth crossing of Bass Strait, our initial stop was for Angela's to visit the now decommissioned Mersey Women's Hospital-this is where her Midwifery training took place back 1982 - 1983. The hospital, which has stood empty for many years, has been totally vandalized and is to be demolished soon- sad to see this happen-so many happy memories.
    We then checked out her old flat she had shared for a few months-now stands in only marginally better shape than the hospital !
    It was then breakfast at the wind swept Mersey Bluff -cold but looking out over Bass Strait a great breakfast treat !
    Our next stop was a few kilometers down the road to the township of Latrobe-Ange lived in the nurse's home for the rest of her training-the nurse's home is now part of the hospital administration offices but unfortunately off limits despite a polite request to have a look down the corridor.After a drive around the small township-including Angela's old walking track and a look at the big hill she would climb we found ourselves at the House of Anvers-a chocolate shop and chocolate Museum for a delicious morning tea - needing to tackle that exercise track that Angela's once used afterwards !!!!
    We decided to stock up on some supplies back in Devonport and visited Hill Street Grocery-a great store so inviting and everything displayed in such a way that browsing was a must. There are apparently several of these stores throughout Tasmania-originating in Hobart.
    Our next stop was to visit Simon Martin Whips and leathercraft -the smell drifting around the store was amazing and such beautiful leather goods on display -you could watch them working with the leather, crafting it into quality products in front of your very eyes.
    Our final mission for the day was to sit on the banks of the Mersey River and watch that Spirit of Tasmania commence her evening sail back to Port Melbourne.

    Devonport Tasmania

    February 28 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 21 °C

    Well we have arrived in Tassie!!
    They journey was ok weather wise only a small swell which makes the ship rock a bit and made me look like a drunk rolling from side to side when trying to walk along a gangway.
    The only thing which spoiled it was the woman in the seat behind me kept knocking the back of my seat (just like the idiots on planes who can’t stand up without pulling on the seat in front) which woke me up and I couldn’t get back to sleep again and waiting for the last 6 hours to pass was very boring.
    We had to put the pups into one of the ships kennels luckily they let us put them into the same one, they were not happy when we left them but very happy when we came back for them in the morning, I’m not sure if they got any sleep because it was very noisy on that deck.
    The disembarked went very quickly as we had been through quarantine in Melbourne there was no checks to hold us up.
    We didn’t really have a plan of where we were going so drove around untill we found a large car park in between Bunnings and Harvey Normans that was empty (not surprising at 7am) so we parked up and all had breakfast dog biscuits for the pups and coffee and eggs on toast for us.
    After that we looked up a freedom camp on WikiCamps and came here.
    Freedom camps are without water and power but do have either a small fee or a requested donation, here it $10 per night with a maximum stay of 3 nights.
    Once we were set up we all had a nap for about 4 hours!
    We visited the information bureau to find places to visit then had a bit of a drive around Devonport.
