So Much To See.
The Pillion and I have been in Tasmania now for a little over two weeks and what we found is that there is a lot more here than meets the eye.
We spent a week in Devonport and used that as a base while we explored the Northwest corner of Tasmania, covering as much as we could from Stanley in the northwest to Cradle Mountain in The Midlands and back into Devonport.
Last week we were in Launceston staying in a place about 2 kilometres, or one mile, from the Cataract Gorge, which in itself is something else. It was a similar distance to the city centre from where we were staying. This allowed us to do a bit of exploring during the days when we didn’t ride.
On Sunday we left Launceston and made our way South to Hobart.
We started out on the Midland Highway out of Launceston which runs through the centre of the state. It should have been a straight forward two and a half hour trip, but when we got to a place called Campbell Town we hung a left and headed out towards the east coast.
That left turn became 60 kilometres of blacktop which I thoroughly enjoyed, although The Pilion might say otherwise 🙂
We came out at a little seaside town called Swansea, where we turned right and followed the coastal route down to Orford and then on to Hobart.
As a result our two and a half hour trip became more like six and a half hours, but it was well worth the detour.
We are still in Hobart, and will be until Sunday, before we make our way back north again. There we will spend a night in Devonport before we board the Spirit of Tasmania again to make our way back to the northern states.
Not sure how I’m going to go for Internet access next week but I will endeavour to do another post if I can.
