Farewell Tassie

semi-overcast 25 °C

Last night in Tassie tonight after a really enjoyable 10 days.

Highlights, there’s several.

Port Arthur is wonderful, and the restoration work is well and truly underway. The site is very commercial now but fees are reasonable. We had a 2 day Bronze Pass which entitled us to free site tours, a cruise around the harbour to Island Of the Dead and Point Puer. Guided tours of Island of the Dead grave yard and Point Puer Boys Prison is extra. Those tours will have to wait until our next visit to Tassie.

I took a total of 254 pics and that was easy to do.

The Wall at Derwent Bridge is fantastic. The sculptures are breathtaking, and all done with chain chainsaws. It’s a father, son, and daughter venture, the daughter being an artist. Unfortunately, but understandably, cameras are banned.

The Highland Lakes drive is incredible. As good a drive as I’ve done. I have been complaining of the lack of parking for photo ops but today there were several in key places but it was bucketing down. I did manage to get a few though.

I must say, apart from driving around Hobart and to a lesser degree Launceston, nothing was a disappointment.
