    Geeveston / Hamilton onto Ellendale

    January 24, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    After leaving Cockle creek we sped off back to Geeveston , a whole 50k up the road. We rested up there while getting ready for the Salamanca markets the next day. Left Geeveston the next morning and went up through the Huon valley over a range and down into Hobart to the Salamanca markets. Wonderful ( where are my mates when I needed them !! ). Spent a morning in the markets before walking up into Hobart to buy Bess some new walking shoes as her other ones were taking skin off on a descent walk. From Hobart we headed up the northern side of the Derwent river to a little town called Hamilton. Spent a day here exploring this cute little town, feasting at it’s bakery and buying some local produce ( garlic and beetroot ). Next day another big run to Ellendale ( 30k away ) to rest up before heading across to Strathgordon.Read more
