The Flynn Tasmanian Tour 2014 travel blog









An early start today to buy some more groceries at the Coles/Kmart complex in Launceston before spending the rest of the morning at Cataract Gorge. Everyone enjoyed the chair lift across the gorge and the walks to the look outs. It was then back on the road through Devenport to Ulvistone and Penguin. We travelled the equivalent of the great ocean road in Tasmania, the only think closer to the sea than us was the railway line. Great views. We stopped over in the lovely sea side town of Penguin (with the large Penguin statue). Population of town was 5000 people and 3000 penguins in 1975!

On through Burnie (fueled up here - fuel is not cheap compared to the main land), and finally to Stanley. We had a quick tour of the little town before doing the chair lift to the top of the Nut (large volcanic outcrop). There is a 45 minute round trip walking track on top - really quite surprising the forest and grass expanses on top of this rock. The weather for the whole day was overcast and in Stanley ranged from sun, lots of wind and misty rain!!

Down to the caravan park - right on the beach. Nice place to stay.
