Feb 22, 2020 - The Tasman Peninsular - Eaglehawk Neck

Our two nights at White Beach were excellent, the amenities were very clean. Our unpowered site cost $30 a night. Our RV has a shower and toilet but we both used the site amenities which had 5 minute hot showers. If you went over you had to wait two minutes for the hot water to start again. I was fine I only needed the five minutes, Grae needed extra time. Apart from the Port Arthur site the Tasman Peninsula also has a very rugged coastline much of it forming the Tasman National Park. Looking south we could see Cape Pillar in the distance....

Oct 31, 2017 - Tasmania Trip 2017

Today we left our " most beautiful " Caravan Park, will have to try not to make comparisons with other parks. We moved to Triabunna. A small township, which is the step off for Maria Island. We have decided not to go, and David and Ann will be going later with Jeff, Ross, and girls. We walked around the town and down to the harbour, very pretty. Found a shop at the harbour selling freshly cooked and local fish and chips, so Ann decided that would be good for her birthday dinner. It has been a lovely sunny day, the breeze quite cool...

Feb 13, 2014 - Maria Island

Today got off to a bad start when I locked the car key in the car, but fortunately the guy from the car club (like AAA) came quickly and got the car open. By breaking in, essentially using the old coathanger trick. By then we were ready to leave, so we checked out and headed for the ferry. Once on Maria Island, we started on the Fossil cliff circuit. The weather was cloudy and breezy, but not cold. This is about a 4 km hike, most of it pretty flat. Everything is covered in sparse brown grass, with occasional scrubby shrubs or trees. We saw...

Jan 28, 2014 - Triabunna

Moved on to Tribunna today, this port was for the soldiers from Maria Island to stay. The Barracks are still there and are up for sale, someone had tried to turn it into a museum and café refurbishment was too high. The port now is used for the cray fisherman and some large recreational boats also for the ferry to take campers to the Island. The caravan park was expensive and squashed in like sardines.There were fires in Hobart that day as the temp reached 37 deg. The evening sky glowed red. Heading out tomorrow.

Jan 7, 2012 - Fantastic walk with KT and Andy from Fortescue bay to Cape Hauy

It was not quite so sunny but still nice so we drove to Fortescue Bay in the Tasmin National Park to do a 4hr walk to Cape Hauy. It is a 12km stoney gravel road down to the bay and seemed never ending but it was worth it as the walk was fantastic. The scenery was spectacular and they had just spent 8 million dollars renovating the track which made the going although still quite rough brilliant at times with good steps instead of dangerous slippery scree.

Mar 17, 2011 - Maria Island National Park & Triabunna

triabunna mit seinen spektakulaeren sonnenuntergaengen bot sich als idealer wilder campinspot an, bevor wir auf maria island ueberlegten. auch hier verbannte man dazumal britische strafgefangene, ehe man in den 1920iger jahren zementwerke erschuf. heute ist die insel ein antionalpark mit bunten klippen, toller tierwelt und wunderschoenen ausblicken, viel fossilien, und immer einer brise wind. auf der rueckfahrt begleiteten uns dann auch noch 1 gruppe delfine, 1 traumtag wieder mal.
