Tasmania – Day 1
This is going to be brief, I have had a very big day on not much sleep from last night, but I wanted to share with you some of the photos and to let you know I arrived.
We caught the Spirit of Tasmania last night and drove the car onto it. Interesting way to travel, on a ship. Sleeping was also different, the constant rocking and rolling. I liked it, but I didn’t really get much sleep.
This was us mucking around as we waited to drive on the ship with the car.
Having the car is fantastic, and gives us so much more freedom. At this time of the year it was much cheaper to put the car on the ship than to fly and hire a car.
We stopped at a a few places along the way, like Mt Roland that had a head of clouds on it.
Not everything was as we wanted, but it was a great day. Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake were on the list of things to do today and we were not disappointed.
The sky has been very overcast and we got lots of clouds on the mountains. We did the circuit walk around Dove Lake and really enjoyed that, well most of it, except maybe the massive hill and steps near the beginning of the walk. If you ever go then I suggest doing the walk in the anti clockwise direction. Get the big hill over and done with at the start and then enjoy the rest of the walk.
Some lovely areas to take photos of.
We are now in Queenstown and looking forward to exploring around here tomorrow.
I am totally stuffed now, and while it was a good day I’m looking forward to some sleep tonight. Here is a gallery with the above images and a few more for you.
