Cold but sunny day. Went for a big drive to Huon Port, Lookout and just took in the scenic spots. Some images from the Hartz Mountain National Park.
Camping at the sports ground at Geeveston. Bad weather is coming. Myrtle Tree. Heading up to Hartz N.P. This is worth the read. From the lookout going up to Hartz Mountain. Lichen. Weather closing in. Hartz N.P. It has it’s own beauty. Arve Waterfall, Hartz N.P. Arve Waterfall, Hartz N.P. Huon River, to the right is the Oyster beds. Just a beautiful Gum tree. Houn Port down there. Looking down onto Geeveston from the big hill. You can see It was raining so had to move. Beautiful Huon Valley. Boat on the Huon River.
Low of 10 deg and high of 16 deg. Made a yoghurt in my Thermal Pot, yum. Went for a big walk along the Platypus way, didn’t see the Platypus though. Came back and had morning tea, then headed up to the Hartz Mountain National Park. Rain started and just got heavier, so when we got to Arve car park for the waterfall, decided to put our coats on and go for it, Well it only got worse on the way back horizontal rain and blowing a gale, but was very invigorating. Carried onto the Centre and stayed there with others waiting for a break in the weather. Still was a awesome day.
Scarlet Robin Eastern Spotted Quoll, Tasmania Yellow White Eye Scarlet Robins Historical Railway Station, most southerly railway. Geeveston has amazing statues that have been chainsawed from timber all over town. Each one tells a story which they have written for the peoples information. This town supports its Artist. Some people have no where to go, 🙂
Got up early and the day is very overcast but took the chance of cloudy but sunny as forecasted, and we are heading off down the Huon Valley as far as Southport. Stopped off at all the wee bays, art galleries, etc. I just love the free range chooks we see in the country side, they are in the most unexpected places. Beautiful scenery and no wind so it wasn’t to bad and no rain. Got very overcast on way home. All in all a very nice day. Just loved following the Huon River for most of the way, gave us some nice reflections. A lot of these photo’s were grab shots through the glass while driving, bit hard in city traffic to stop.
Bridge over the Derwent River in Hobart. The bridge in Hobart with Mt Wellington in back ground. Mt Wellington. Out of the traffic, now for some scenery. This is where we had morning tea at Franklin on the edge of the Huon River. A lot of old buildings are being used today for shops, galleries, etc, I loved the wheel in this photo. Huon River. As soon as I got over to the picnic table these ducks all came running, so funny. Heading towards Geeveston Free range chooks. Nice entry to the town of Geeveston. Had lunch at Dover. Driving around to Southport, the end of the tar sealed road south. Little beach holiday places right on the water. End of the line. On our way back caught some good lighting on these yachts. Another quick shot of the bridge at Hobart on our way home.
