    St. Helens - Freycinet NP - Tasman NP

    March 11 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Tag 37

    Der Tag beginnt mit einzelnen Sonnenstrahlen und so entschliessen wir uns die Bay of Fire ein bisschen genauer unter die Lupe zu nehmen. Wir laufen den Strand rauf und runter, besteigen die grossen, runden, herumliegenden Granitfelsen und knipsen unsere Fotos. Ein paar tolle Aufnahmen gelingen tatsächlich, so fahren wir gegen Mittag weiter Richtung Freycinet NP. Wir finden noch knapp einen Platz zum nächtigen, kochen uns mal wieder ein einfaches Abendmahl und verkriechen uns in der weissen Blechkiste.

    Tag 38

    Das Highlight des Freycinetparks ist die Wineglassbay und die schwierige Wanderung auf zum Mt Amos. 250m darunter liegt der Aussichtspunkt für jedermann. Natürlich wollen wir den Amos besteigen! Leider spuckt uns Petrus mal wieder in die Suppe und lässt es den ganzen Morgen mehr oder weniger regnen, was einen Aufstieg nicht durchführbar macht. Wir begnügen uns mit dem Standart Ausblick und geniessen die im trübmilchigen Morgennebel liegende Wineglassbay mit Zig anderen Wandervögeln. Da heute auch noch Sonntag und am Montag Feiertag ist, scheint ganz Tasmanien die kleine Wineglassbay heute sehen zu wollen. Irgendwann laufen wir zurück zum Auto und verlassen die Touristenhochburg.

    Tag 39

    Heute scheint die Sonne und zwar den ganzen Tag! Wir begeben uns auf eine Perle von einer Wanderung, 4h hin und zurück ans Kap Hauy. Der mit vielen Stufen, aber sehr anwenderfreundliche Wanderweg führt der Küste entlang durch dichte Wälder, wobei es stetig aufwärts geht. Vom höchsten Punkt können wir das Kap und das Ziel bereits erkennen, dafür geht es nochmals zweimal tief runter und wieder hoch. Die Oberschenkel lassen Grüssen. Der weite Ausblick auf die felsige Küste sieht fantastisch aus und wir geniessen unser Snack. Nach einem Drohnenshot mit zwei Deutschen geht es den selben Weg zurück. Die angegebene 4h Laufzeit wird mit 2h 35min unterboten. Wir sind glücklich hat das Wetter mal wieder mitgespielt und fahren müde zum Campground und geniessen unsere verdiente warme Dusche.

    Nubeena ex serviceman's club

    March 26 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    We left Bruny Island via the other ferry (same route different vessel)
    On this one the ferry travelled forward while we were all facing the stern giving us the feeling of reversing all the way back to the Tasmanian mainland.
    We dropped Sonny and Cher off at the Shelomith Kennels where they will be vacationing while we visit Port Arthur, this will save us having to leave them locked up all day in the car while we tour the historic former convict penal settlement.
    We have booked into the Nubeena ex-serviceman’s club for 3 nights you pay $20 per night but they give you a $10 voucher to spend over the bar and they let us use the toilet and showers while the club is open.
    To get here we crossed the Pitt Water Nature Reserve via 2 narrow causeways where the water can be blowing across the road.

    Port Arthur and the Coal Mines

    January 19, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    The last week we've few nights we've been staying at white beach caravan park, a great little spot with a lovely white sand beach and only 10kms out of Port Arthur.
    We went to Port Arthur yesterday and it was pretty amazing ( really sad too) we went to the ruins of the broad arrow cafe, which is within the grounds, where the massacre took place and there is a memorial there which was really sad. Included in the entry fee is a boat ride out to see the 'Isle of the Dead' island which is a tiny island that around 1000 convicts were buried on ( also priests and high class people who worked within the jail and their families ) they we buried up on a hill whilst the convicts were buried below them. Also takes you out to another island nearby which was the boys jail. Pretty heavy stuff! We were there for 5 hours and didn't get to everything.
    Today we went to the historic coal mines - in a different place but convicts were jailed there too, not touristy like post Arthur, but so interesting, the cells under ground looked awful - it was a bit creepy - we were the only ones there!
    Went to the remarkable cave too, beautiful spot, the pics don't do it justice at all. It's a huge cave but looks small in the pictures!
    Max has work on Bruny Island that he picked up from one of the national parks fellas out there that he befriended so tomorrow we are going back for a few weeks. Miss you all! Xxx

    Port Arthur more photos

    March 27 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Well after a big day we returned to the caravan, phoned the kennels to check on our furry babies (by all accounts they are happy playing with other “inmates” sorry I meant resort guests (that’s what you get spending all day at a penal settlement).
    So with Kay’s mind at rest we went over to the Ex-serviceman’s club for a drink and a meal, Kay had a nice juicy steak with a mushroom sauce (and the chef was very generous with the mushrooms) while I had my usual YES a “chicken parmigiana” surprise surprise, which was again huge we both left most of our fries to allow for the Kahlua cheesecake dressed in a berry sauce um um time for bed now.Read more
