Travel Blogs from Hobart


A travel blog entry by hendos


So after leaving Port Arthur, we headed our way toward Hobart. It was getting very very cold so we were glad that we were going to stay at the caravan park. We stayed at one which was right on the river. Absolutely beautiful place with lots of birds and wildlife.
On the first day we went to Mt Wellington. We decided to drive up and check out the view as it was a lovely clear day. We didn't realise how steep and precarious the drive was. Sheer drop offs ...

Day 45 - Snug to Salamanca Markets and back

A travel blog entry by ambro0


... from a parrot - one of three up a tree in the park. We identified the "offending" bird as a Long-billed Corella. It is cream in colour with peachy coloured skin on the neck and head. We sat outside for a drink and a few nibbles around 7:30pm - not something we've been able to do very much down here. Our spot here at Snug is good in the respect that the awning is on the western side of the van and the sun shines in until around ...

Worked the 8am-1pm PDS and had a crew drill at 9:45am.

Called Dad after my shift since it’s his birthday in the States! Happy Birthday Dad!

A travel blog entry by kathypender

We decided to go to the Salamanca Markets for a look. We left just before 10 and drove through Bellerieve and then on through the Battery Bluff Reserve.

We drove to the park and ride where we parked up and caught the bus to the markets. Here we organised to meet ...

Wombats: the definition of cuteness

A travel blog entry by journeyjoy


... br> We got free bags of kangaroo feed at the entrance to the park and a keeper took us around to see and pet a baby wombat (CUTEST animal on the planet). He took us to the Tasmanian devils next and told us about the wild Tasmanian devils that are dying off due to a fairly new cancer that’s showed up in this species (lost about 85% of the wild population in the last 12-15 years). The adult devils were a lot smaller than I pictured. He took ...
