Not a good place for a relaxing stay, it's crowded, the rooms are stuffed with bunks and the kitchen and toilets are very dirty. Therefore it's cheap and has a good location near the town centre of Hobart.

Our time in Raro is almost up and we are coming to the close of the sizeable and hugely enjoyable nostalgia chunk of the trip. Its time to mix things up a bit and bring on some new stuff. - It's time to shiver your timbers, batten down the cabin boy and set sail for New Caledonia (new what?).

Passed the lovely village of Cygnet where we will be returning to next weekend for the folk festival and finally ended up at Franklin on the river in a $10 campsite. Very picturesque.
... back down Eaglehawk Neck where we walked along the dogline. This was a line of savage dogs chained across the Isthmus of Eaglehawk Neck to stop convicts from escaping from Port Arthur.
We had a look at Tasman Arch and the Devils Kitchen, then did the Waterfall Bay walk. The walk was about 3.5km return with incredible views of the coastline.
