Oct 19, 2017 - Tasmania Trip 2017

Well today we are back to showers and heavy cloud. Was to go for a drive and a walk, but not looking like that will happen. Noel and I decided we would go to the Salmon Ponds, had been there 18 years ago and had a lovely salmon meal at the restaurant. Things do change, the fish ponds are the same, however, the restaurant now only serves crepes with various fillings. The meals were nice but not what we really wanted. On the 30min drive, passed hops growing, also raspberries and cherries. We are too early for the fruit, hopefully there may be...

However once we were above 1000m we drove into the clouds and drizzle and visibility was poor so we returned to do a slightly lower walk to a lookout.

Jan 17, 2012 - Still up in the National Parks in the centre of Tasmania

Many people follow the historical “convict trail” when they visit Tasmania which means they go round all the places influenced by the importation of convicts from GB in the early 1800’s but we seem to have been on the hydroelectricity trail. The majority of Tasmanian electricity comes from hydroelectric power and the central mountain massif (700m+ height) has huge lakes over its surface that are linked to two interlinking systems of small lakes with dams, canals, pipes and small power station which we seemed to be passing all the time. One...
