    Das Survival-Duo im Skigebiet

    February 6, 2017 in Australia

    "Hier auf dem Ben Lomond ist im Sommer wirklich gar nicht's los", denke ich so bei mir als auffällt, dass unser Handy mal wieder keinen Empfang hat. "Wenn unser Hyundai jetzt hier den Geist aufgibt, wird uns bis zum Winter niemand finden. Aber dann kann ich vielleicht endlich Mal mit meinem Wissen aus der DMAX-Serie 'Das Survival-Duo: Zwei Männer, ein Ziel' punkten." Doch die Tour abseits der Touristenpfade lohnt sich. Bei der letzten Etappe, die ziemlich steil bergauf geht, stockt mir zwar der Atem und ich muss teilweise die Augen schließen, aber für diesen tollen Ausblick hat sich der Thrill doch wirklich gelohnt.Read more

    Durch die Midlands

    December 20, 2016 in Australia

    Auf dem Rückweg nach Hobart entschlossen wir uns nicht über die Ostküste weiter zu fahren, da wir ja den unteren Teil aus unserem Besuch auf Maria Island schon kannten und nahmen deshalb den Weg durch die Midlands. Auch hier gab es einige schöne Dinge zu sehen.

    Day 6. Port Arthur - Ross

    January 15, 2017 in Australia

    Woke up in Port Arthur. Hit the Tassie Devil zoo at 10am. Really awesome especially when 3 devils fought over the same piece of wallaby! Great kangaroo feeding too. And quolls!
    Drove 1.5 hours north to Ross. A river town with the 3rd oldest bridge in Australia.
    On the way Jesse and I jumped an electric fence and (illegally) harvested some wheat!
    We are going fishing in the river again tonight. No luck this arvo. Apparently there are platypus here too.
    Having Tassie red wine on the river banks now.

    Les moments nature en Tasmanie

    February 18, 2016 in Australia

    Un soir, on trouve un gîte dans un endroit perdu au centre de la Tasmanie. On se fait accueillir par les kangourous. L'endroit est utilisé généralement par des camps d'enfants, mais là on est complètement seuls et on en profite pour prendre nos aises.

    November 4, 2017 in Australia

    Ross, situated 120km north of Hobart, is a town full of colonial charm. The town was established in 1812, and was set up to protect Launceston-Hobart travellers from bushrangers. It developed into an important coach-staging post at the center of Tasmania's wool industry. The famous bridge at Ross, was built in 1836, and is the third oldest bridge in Australia. It enabled passage across the Macquarie River.
    Today the town of Ross has plenty of country feel, an array of accommodation and history to keep tourists satisfied.

    Campbell Town and Evandale

    April 22, 2017 in Australia

    Time to head home today. Basically we would take our time to head roughly northwest and back to Launceston airport to catch our mid afternoon flight home. Once again, Rae enjoyed his full English breakfast without black pudding, and we bid our hosts farewell before heading north. We made our way again through the lovely Tasmanian countryside and stopped in Campbell Town. It was a lovely country town to wander up and down the main street, and while away some time. Of the several cafes on offer, we opted for a coffee inside a local artist's gallery and enjoyed looking at his art work using landscape subjects from all over the world. He also added his own poetry to most of the works which made them interesting. Some were just on display and others were for sale. We enjoyed looking at the places we'd either been or would like to go.

    After that we had a stroll around some other buildings and the park. Very tidy, and lots of people out enjoying the day. I came across a contraption built by a local farmer to observe the transit of Venus in 2012. He'd more or less made it out of farm equipment and donated it to the local council.

    Hopping back into the car, we headed closer to Launceston, stopping in the little heritage village of Evandale. What a lovely place! I could have stayed for a lot longer - many well kept convict style buildings and again lots of cafes to choose from. Very chic/boutique. Had our lunch out in the courtyard in the sun - a lovely place to veg and contemplate heading back to civilization. Had an uneventful rest of the day - dropped the hire car back and waited for our plane for home. Saw one of our muso friends arriving with his trumpet for a gig, but couldn't speak to him on the other side of the glass! Looking forward to our next holiday
