Ship Stern BluffMarch 1, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C
Got up outside Auntie Jan's house about 8.45. I was still feeling a bit ill and Hannah was starting to come down with it. We had a chilled morning planning our 2 week Tassie trip. Caught sight of a pod of dolphins making their way up to Hobart for the morning commute.
Had a chat with cousin Lara whilst Jan was out. Then had a lovely group lunch before setting off towards Port Arthur area.
I checked the swell and it was looking around 16ft with light winds, so decided to take a detour to Ship Stern Bluff. One of the worlds most wild waves. After an hour and a half walk we found it.
Massive powerful wave. We just missed a group of surfers who were just leaving on a jet ski.
Amazing coastline with no one else around.
With dusk approaching we walked back through the trees to our van.
Moved it into the close by camping spot for 20 dollars for 2 of us. The owner came out and shined a bright light in our faces when we got in, complaining that we did not dip our lights when entering his field 🙄. Very friendly.Read more
