Day 64

Monday 4th May

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.

IMG_5949  I found it fascinating how the farmers make dips in the paddocks to hold the water, smart really.IMG_5952 IMG_5953  View of The Nut at Stanley from our drive back out from Dip fallsIMG_5959 IMG_5960  Car park and picnic area at Dip fallsIMG_5987  Viewing platform of the falls IMG_5990  This is the view, they are so big couldn’t get the falls all in.IMG_5991  Bottom half of the fallsIMG_6037  152 steps down to the bottom to see the lower part of the falls, yes we did it.IMG_6059  Lower falls, lighting was not good .Note the rocks are a basalt.IMG_6067 IMG_6071 IMG_6078  Now the 152 steps back up.IMG_6146 IMG_6150  Outside the honey place on the Dip falls road, beautiful colours.IMG_6157  A wee tractor at the junction of a road.IMG_6174  Rocks and some of the colours, lots of these sort of rocks up this coast, all being used for geological studies.IMG_6289  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.IMG_6283 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.

Day 45

Wednesday 15th April   3rd day on Bruny Island

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.
