Pancakes on Shrove Tuesday

Blessed are the cheese makers


St Columba Falls



We are now heading inland and have realised that Tasmania is quite hilly with lots of winding roads and deep valleys. We spent a night at Pyengana and had a wonderful dinner at the Pub in the Paddock. We didn't get to see the famous beer drinking pig but they did have the log fire going as the temperature was a wee bit chilly.

The night sky was amazing, with no light pollution here we could clearly see the Milky Way. Grae was lucky enough to also catch a shooting star.

We stopped at the Pyengana Dairy and tried a selection of cheeses, chutneys and sauces. Just as well as we burnt this fuel off on our walk to the amazing St Columba Falls. This is one of Tasmania's tallest waterfalls, with a waterfall drop of over 90 metres. It was very powerful with cascading waters that plunge over steep granite ledges and the walk down to the base was through beautiful moss and lichen covered trees and giant antarctic dicksonia tree ferns. The walk back up to the carpark was very invigorating!
