Freycinet National Park

Thursday 23 April 2009

When I woke up this morning, I noticed some strange sounds outside. After a few minutes I realized that my neighbor had changed shape. Oh, look: his relatives are also around.

It’s time to move on and leave Hobart. Next stop: Coles Bay. It’s on the east side of Tasmania and it is there for only one reason: Freycinet National Park. There are not many options when it comes to getting to my destination. But some deviations from the Tom Tom route are possible. And one of them brings me to the Seven Miles Beach.

There are so many nice things to see and do on this island, but I have limited time and the distances are enormous. Therefore I need to make some choices. I choose to go to the Huon valley and to see the Tahune Forest AirWalk.

The day starts with some shopping. I am not equipped for 15 degrees and potential rain showers. Luckily my hotel is just meters away from the shopping centre of town.

No pictures today. Today I will travel from Sydney to Hobart (Tasmania).

The day started with a lot of rain in Sydney making leaving this city a bit easier;-) But when the sun showed for some time, I couldn’t resist walking to Circular Quay one more time. It was a nice stroll along many visitors again. Then I had to return to my hotel because the taxi would pick me up within 30 minutes. The moment I got back in the hotel, the rain started pouring again. Good timing.

It was a pleasant flight to Hobart. Here I picked up my next car, a Nissan X-Trail this time, to drive to all sorts of nice places on this island. One thing is clear: it’s much colder down here: 15 degrees… brrrrrr. A few weeks ago it was over 40… But then: it’s dry. And that’s not always the case on this island.

Let’s start by getting to the hotel. I noticed on my small map that Hobart city is all about one way streets and my hotel is in the middle of it all. Hey, where did I hear that before? Oh yeah: that was in Sydney where Tom Tom didn’t help much… Well this time he/she was performing very nicely again and I found the hotel in no time.

By the time I got there, it was dark and it’s Sunday, meaning everything is closed in this town. Therefore it’s going to be a relaxed dinner in the hotel and then it’s time to move on to tomorrow.
