Well we went for a drive out to Dip Falls and then spent some time in the bush, then on our way home called into Edgecombe beach, weather was turning bad.
I found it fascinating how the farmers make dips in the paddocks to hold the water, smart really. View of The Nut at Stanley from our drive back out from Dip falls Car park and picnic area at Dip falls Viewing platform of the falls This is the view, they are so big couldn’t get the falls all in. Bottom half of the falls 152 steps down to the bottom to see the lower part of the falls, yes we did it. Lower falls, lighting was not good .Note the rocks are a basalt. Now the 152 steps back up. Outside the honey place on the Dip falls road, beautiful colours. A wee tractor at the junction of a road. Rocks and some of the colours, lots of these sort of rocks up this coast, all being used for geological studies. This is where we have been camping, its free around the back on one side, and for power on the other side its $10 a night + $3 for showers and toilets, deposit for key which you get back when you hand the key in. Very lovely meals as well with specials on most nights of the week. Sun setting with a storm coming at Port Latta in the mid ground and The nut in the back ground. this was at Edgecombe beach.
We got sorted nice and early this morning as we are going to the Cape Lighthouse. Weather was good, windy and bit chilly but had a great time, Coast line here is so rough and beautiful. Saw a Albino Wallaby, there are quiet a few here on the island, the drive back to van park was interesting scenery, the island is bigger than I thought. We have been staying at the van park but a mistake in our booking gave us a very flash house for a night so we moved base.
Seen better days Here at a lookout pulled in this beautiful car. HMAS Canberra ship anchoring in the bay for the night. One of the many wee walking tracks, just nice. View from the cape Bruny light station Cape Bruny Lighthouse, the kids walking up in the bushes on the path. This had 1836 A.D. on the front, it is not working now and cant be used by the public to look inside, shes getting old. View from the light house. Incredible coast line, all the Basalt rock formations. Albino Wallaby, no Kangaroos on Bruny.
