Went through to Richmond, then onto Tea Tree and out onto the high way to get to East Derwent to get over to Glenorchy on the west side of Derwent, very low fog, very bleak and drizzly, very cold as well, so didn’t spend much time to get back to unit and veggie out in the afternoon. No photo’s today.

Thursday 18th June.
Last day to tiki tour so we are off early to the city and Cascade Brewery and Mt Wellington, Had a awesome day, the sun came out at the right time at cascade brewery, then I could see it snowing on Mt Wellington so off we go and yes we got snowed on, only light snow but still fun, the cloud was very low. From there we went down to Battery Point and parked, did a bit of looking around, then got the car and drove to find a place to have our lunch. The black clouds were coming over fast so we ate and ran, back up to Mt Wellington and got snowed on some more, heavier this time, then Don went into a building and a chap was sitting by a fire while waiting for the weather to improve, so we stood by the fire and chattered to him lovely watching it snowing by a fire. Got back to the unit early afternoon and enjoyed the last of it , we leave for Launceston in the morning.
Snowing on Mt Wellington Sun shone for us very briefly. Cascade Brewery, this is the oldest remaining brewery, it was originally a sawmill, Then the Brewery was established in 1824. Cascade Brewery Back up on Mt Wellington. Mofo is running for a week in Hobart, love the design of the way the wood is stacked, ready for the fires at night for cooking.Models of Able Tasman’s ships. Salamanca, this is where they hold farmers markets every Saturday. This is the name of the image below, turning silo’s into apartments, great idea, save wasting them. The house of Lenna. Lenna is a Tasmanian aboriginal word for house or hut. Heritage listed the builder built it for his wife. This is the apartments of Lenna. This is at Battery Point. View of the city from Lenna’s lookout, we were lucky enough to go inside and climb the stairs to have a look, image below shows the lookout room. Front entrance of Lenna. The lookout from the Princes gardens. Saw this mansion, as we walk back to the car. Silo apartments from another angle. Reflections in the all glass front of this building.
All these buildings are being used for arts, cafe’s, etc.. I don’t know what they were previously but thought they may of been wharf storage sheds in early days.
