    T5 - Tasmanien

    December 6 in Australia

    ▪️Der Wind war in der Nacht so heftig, dass er unser Vorzelt zum einstürzen brachte
    ▪️Lynn musste Julia und mich befreien, weil wir mit unserem Zelt darin schliefen
    ▪️ Weil es so windig war konnten wir nicht mit dem Sessellift den Berg in Stanley hochfahren
    ▪️Standley ist ein richtig süßes Vintage Dorf
    ▪️Gegen 11Uhr sind wir zum Narawntapu National Park gefahren - kein Mensch kann es vernünftig aussprechen 😂
    ▪️Waren am wunderschönen, Menschen leeren Strand - Griffiths Point
    ▪️Wollten in Tama Valley eine Weinprobe machen
    ▪️Konnten uns nicht einigen wer nūchtern bleibt und einen flußläufigen Campingplatz in der Nähe gab es auch nicht
    ▪️Also fiel die Weinprobe aus und wir sind direkt zum nächsten kostenlosen Campingplatz gefahren
    ▪️Der war 5min zu Fuß vom kleinen Lilydale Wasserfall entfernt und mit Toilette 😃

    💡Bei fast jedem Haus hat das Veranda Vordach richtig schöne Verzierungen in den Ecken.

    The North Coast

    December 2 in Australia

    Yesterday was great. I got to pet a wombat, spotted quoll, and Tasmanian devil! I bought some food for the birds, wallabies, and roos. The swans and ducks gathered right at my feet although not close enough to touch. There was an adorable little red-neck wallaby who ate right out of my hand. He grabbed my hand with his front paws and chowed down. I could even stroke his neck a little while he ate. But I think the best was a large male kangaroo (a buck). He was lounging in the shade of a tree/bush using a flat rock as a pillow. He was pretty intimidating with his giant hind feet and claws, but I had the bag of food that his nose seemed to recognize. I crept closer and closer, then slowly extended my hand with feed in it. His soft nose brushed against my fingers as he gently licked up the food from my palm. It was incredible.

    After the Wildlife park, I went to Mole Creek Caves that contain, most notably, glow worms. They're really larvae of Fungus Gnats and they are very bright, especially once your eyes have adjusted to the dark. There's also a chamber with the "Palm Tree" because of its shape (it looks so much like one, I guessed its name) and the Cathedral, in which I belted out the first verse and chorus of Black Horse and the Cherry Tree. Had to be done. 😉

    Another greatest moment of a very full day was in Devonport at 9 pm when I watched Little Penguins come in to feed their chicks. You must use red light so they don't get scared, so the few pictures I took didn't really come out, even after I converted them to black and white. The two attached are one coming out of the water (on the left, dark spot in the surf) and three preening on the beach. They're about a foot tall, the smallest of all penguins, and the only ones native to Australia. I was the only person (other then the three volunteers) who stayed long enough to see one nest where both parents had been out feeding, came back, and fed the two chicks. Magnificent.

    Today has been mostly driving along the northern coast. I've made several stops, but just as I get started on walking around it starts to rain. Then the sun comes back out. Then it rains again. The wind is very high and gusty, and the temperature is about 17°C/62°F. When the sun is out, it's downright hot, but the stupid wind is frigid. Come on, Tazzy, it's summer!

    Interesting fact about Tazzy: it's the world's leading producer of legal poppy (medicinal use). Some of the poppy fields are in bloom, and all of the fields have signs posted identical to the one in the picture. The growing conditions are great, but most of all, this is an island whose borders can be more easily guarded making smuggling on or off the island very difficult.

    Now, I'm at Three Sisters Beach and about to head to the northwest coast where I plan to spend the night. Probably in the car again. Hotels are at least $100 Australian a night and can reach $250 near the tourist draws. Waaaaay too much.

    So long [for now] and thanks for all the fish. ✌️

    day 6 - 'the nut'

    March 5, 2017 in Australia

    This morning I woke up on the beautiful beach it was a really nice view.

    First we went to a few caves. That was okay and the hike was nice, then to a lighthouse. The lookout over there was nice.

    Before lunch we climbed the nut. It is like a big round flat rock rising out of the sea total 143 meters high. It was a steep climb but it was good! On the top we could just walk around and enjoy the view. Also saw some a animals there.

    Afterwards we went to see some waterfalls that was okay and it was next to the road so that's easy.

    In the en of the day we found a nice campspot and we made a fire there. officially not allowed because it's summer. But anyway it went well.

    Warrahtah

    November 17, 2015 in Australia

    Wenn jemand mal das Ende der zivilisierten Welt besuchen möchte, dann sollte er hier hinfahren😁

    Die Bevölkerung sank von rund 10.000 (Goldrausch) zu 300. Da ist Sachsen-Anhalt ja relativ stabil😁

    Dafür Wasserfall in der "City" neben der Main Street

    Boat Harbour Beach

    November 23, 2016 in Australia

    Der unserer Meinung nach tollste Strand Tasmaniens - selbst bei strömenden Regen.
    Sorry Wineglass Beach, aber der hier war einfach besser!
    Wer nach Tasmanien kommt darf diesen Strand nicht verpassen!

    Wir entschieden, Stanley und die dortige Vulkanbesteigung sein zu lassen und gleich in Schlagdistanz zum Cradle Mountain (nach Waratah) aufzubrechen.Read more

    Rocky Cape National Park Teil1

    December 9, 2016 in Australia

    Bei diesem schönen Wetter mussten wir natürlich wieder einmal die Landschaft erkunden. Die hatte sich seit unserer letzten Wanderung gravierend verändert. Der Weg führte uns von Sisters Beach - im kleinsten Nationalpark Tasmaniens - über Broadview Hill, Anniversary Bay, Lee Archer Cave und Wet Cave.

    Boat Harbour Beach

    December 9, 2016 in Australia

    Nachdem wir quasi den Regentag im Auto verbracht hatten, schien am nächsten Tag die Sonne wieder. Noch dazu hatten wir an diesem traumhaften Platz übernachtet !

    Rocky Cape National Park Teil2

    December 9, 2016 in Australia

    Hier der Rest der Bilder dieser schönen Runde, auch wenn die Fliegen die uns permanent hundertfach belagert hatten ( wir hatten doch erst vor 2 Tagen geduscht !?) sehr nervig waren☺
