Wednesday 22nd February Heading to George Town

Well we got away by 9 am, and its 21 deg, lovely. Had a great drive through and decided not to call into Bridport as we’d done it last time. Got to George Town and went to information centre as we do when its a new area for us. George Town and Low Head are on the east side of the Tamar near the mouth of the river. With info in hand, had a look around and ended up booking into the East beach Tourist Park, we dont do van parks but I have to say this is nice and clean, basic and lovely couple own it. Good price for power as well. We are staying two nights.

 Our camp site, plenty of room.   Low Head light house.  Beach just out from Van park.  Incredible art works.  I wanted to add these plaques so get the information correct. Van Park.

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.

Well the four of us are heading off to catch the ferry to  Bruny Island for four nights, Dons son and his partner are there as well, we have met  up from different directions for this trip. This is our 1st day, we are based at Adventure bay in a van park in a onsite van we are sharing. These photos are pretty much self explanatory, just beach scenes and rocks with amazing colours.
