... mountain and our stopping place for the night, we came across the Marakoopa Caves. We stopped in to look at the visitor center to see what it had to offer and saw that it offered the chance to see all kinds of creepy cave dwelling creatures that we couldn't resist including very large spiders and glow worms. The cave proved to be very interesting with many beautiful mineral formations and some very impressive stalactites and stalagmites. We did not come across ...
... through the ages. We noted the rain had slackened to a fine drizzle and decided that we should venture out from Hobart for a drive down the coast. Visibility was not brilliant but we did get an appreciation of a green, tree lined countryside.

About two and three quarters of an hour. Met a lovely guy on the plane called Dennis who was off for a week's fly fishing down here. Chatted to him non-stop during the flight. Picked up the car at the airport (thanks Phill!) and dropped Dennis off in Hobert before we swung by the MONA - the new Museum of Old ...
