Western Tasmania continued

A shot of Ocean Beach at Strahan. A wonderful beach but a.) not swimming weather - this is Tasmania after all - and b.) not a swimming beach because of the currents. But a wonderful, wide and long beach to look at and with those mountains in the background. We camped here.

Summer in Tasmania!!!!!! Only NZ does bad weather better than Tassie.

This photo was taken of us (no, Andrew is not a character from The Name of the Rose) on Sarah Island on the Gordon River. Sarah Island was an island where the worst convicts were kept but it was closed when Port Arthur was opened. We did a cruise on the Gordon River but the weather was rather bad on the day. The wonderful lunch was the only compensation.

Two shots of rainforests as we have not seen them elsewhere. It gets pretty wet on the western side of Tasmania.

But overall, Tassie does not get all that much rain, we gather. Hobart has the second lowest rainfall of all Australian capital cities.

Another nice mossy shot.
