    Cockle Creek

    January 16, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Zurück von der Wanderung hatten wir einen schönen Schattenplatz gefunden und verbrachten den restlichen Mittag in der Hängematte mit Musik hören. Tina war sogar im eiskalten Wasser (das immerhin direkt aus der Antarktis kommt) schwimmen.Read more

    'TAHUNE' - is aboriginal and means ' peaceful place by running water '
    Tahune Airwalk is in the country where the traditional custodians of this area , Lyluequonny people , lived and travelled.

    The Doof

    January 1 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

    An Silvester ist nicht viel passiert.

    Wir sind nachmittags beim „Doof“ angekommen. Einer Buschparty mitten im nirgendwo.

    Mein erstes Festival. Und mindestens mein letztes dieser Art. Die Musik war unendlich grauenvoll, allerdings auch darauf ausgelegt nur unter Drogen ertragen zu werden. Was auch die meisten hier gemacht haben. Ich hab noch nicht einmal besonders viel getrunken.

    Da wir als Gruppe da waren, hat es trotzdem irgendwie Spaß gemacht.

    Maddie und Hans sind noch eine Nacht länger geblieben, und wir haben ihnen somit auf Wiedersehen gesagt. R (die betreffende Person wünscht sich dass ihr Name hier nicht auftaucht) und ich haben uns entschlossen noch ein bisschen gemeinsam weiter zu reisen, und die Ostküste zu erkunden.

    Geeveston and Franklin

    March 17, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    After a nice breakfast of toasted hot cross buns we left Southport travelling alongside the Huon river again seeing some amazing vistas as we come over the crest of hills looking down into valley covered in mist or low clouds or it could be the view across the river with the bays full of yachts or just the sunrise on the water.
    We stopped in Geeveston to have a walk around looking at the woodcarvings the shops and the displays in the information bureau.
    Then next we site up for the rest of the day and an overnight stop at Franklin a $10 off grid site that has toilets water and waste bins.

    Cygnet to Launceston

    December 28, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    We left Bruny and traveled west to Cygnet on the Huon river, to Nicks and Andy’s second air B&B. The next day went for a drive up one side of the Huon river and down the other side visiting lots of beautiful old towns as we went. The day after that we headed towards Launceston and I suggested we take the back roads, it’ll take a little longer but far more picturesque and very little traffic. They agreed, so we zigzagged our way to Launceston, instead of taking 2 and a half hours it took 6 hours , and what a fantastic drive it was. We traveled through farm land, forestry, mountains and horticultural land as we came into Launceston. The mountain we came down into Launceston dropped us down 1200m in a very short time ( ears were popping) and the brakes were very hot. I pick up Bess in a couple of days and we will start looking around Launceston and then down the east coast.Read more

    Flowerpot, Egg and Bacon bay sightseeing

    March 20, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Today we set off in opposite direction from Snug to have a look and see what we mind find lurking around the next corner. We found bay where the water was so amazingly clear, we found a town with trees that had been craved by some brilliant artists the details were so clear.
    We went to the Bruny Island ferry terminal where we will go to on Saturday to cross over to Bruny. We saw miniature free book lending stations.

    Bruny Island

    January 1, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    We caught the ferry over yesterday and spent the day at Bruny. It's only a 30 min ferry ride.
    We had a great day, it wasn't too cold!
    We spotted an albino Echidna on the side of the road - amazing!!!
    Max got a surf finally ( Tracey and the Ingram kids were with us at that stage and we hung at the creek whilst the boys took 45 each way to get to the surf 😅🤦🏼‍♀️) and then we headed to adventure bay, white sand beach and turquoise water with the bush reaching right to the water. I had a swim and it was very fresh 😬 but refreshing 😜.
    Wanted to spend New Year's Day over there today but it's rainy and cold so hopefully we'll go again soon when the weather is clear.
