    Mining towns of the west coast

    May 20, 2019 in Australia ⋅ 🌧 13 °C

    Rainy day, driving between small historical towns showing leftovers from a mining industry. In Zeehan we followed a long narrow rain forrest path (with the car of cause, it was still raining) and found an abandoned railway tunnel.
    Afternoon was spend in a local cafe, working and escaping the weather.

  • Day3


    October 25, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    We had decided to use Zeehan as our base and spend the next two nights there. It is centrally located on the west coast, known as the ' silver city ' and was once Tasmania's 3rd largest town.
    We were introduced to Hazel, an old bus that had been converted to motorhome of sorts and like a lot of old girls when not in much use get a little musty between the sheets -Duncan saved the day with some great smelling aftershave we used as airfreshner !
    After an early chilly start we spent a great part of the day at Cradle Mountain.
    We made our way back Zeehan passing many gum plantations on the way. We drove around the old township and spent our remaining time at the School of Mines Museum. Fantastic history of machinery and other early mining equipment.
    Also housed at the School of Mines Museum was a huge array of rock examples not only local but from all over the world - there were hundreds of exhibits.
