    This Was What I Came For!

    My whole reasoning for coming to Tasmania was that I was mesmerized by the photos of the Bruny Islands from the perspective of a boat. So, naturally, I book a tour to see the Tasman Island and don't realize I have made the mistake until it is too late. This was a happy happenstance, however, because my cheeks are windburned, my eyes are glassy, and I can't stop looking at my pictures of today.

    I needed to give myself an hour and a half to get to ...

    A much better start to the day with a really good breakfast at the hotel. And it's free. Whoopee.

    Then I went out for a walk to photograph the places we'd been to last night. Janette stayed at the hotel and had a bit of private time (washing my privates etc in the hotel guest laundry). Much cooler today and I should have put a jacket on but later in the day it turned out to be a very pleasant 23C.

    Fortescue Bay and Hike to Cape Hauy

    We explore a bit of the Tasman Peninsula in search of firewood for our next remote campsite at Mill Creek campground in Fortescue Bay. We have booked a lovely ocean front site for 2 nights. The wildlife is again plentiful and we can add a seal and dolphins to our sightings. Some locals give us a freshly caught squid down at the dock. They kindly even clean it for us after we mention that we are prairie folk from Canada.

    ... two guides and actually it was not too bad. Our guide was chatty, informative and could shout loudly, and she gave us good understanding of this place. The boat trip around the associated islands in the bay, was also good, but too many people trying to get up the gang plant at the same time was disturbing. It has to be said that crowd control is weak here. The site is very extensive, and the old buildings, of which there are many, are set in what ...

    Port Arthur, UNESCO World Heritage Site

    From 1832 to 1877 the convict prison of Port Arthur, located 110 km from Hobart, existed as "a mill to grind rogues honest". At the time, Tasmania was known as Van Diemen's land. The peninsula on which the prison stood was joined to the mainland by an 80-meter-wide isthmus called Eagle Hawk Neck. Ferocious dogs guarded the site which was surrounded by impossible cliffs (except for the port) above shark-infested waters. In the 1990's a trekker ...
