Hello there, here we are at Station pier for our trip to tasmania
There was a cruise ship docked and later noticed there was 2 of them ☺
The boat we were going on was http://www.spiritoftasmania.com.au/ which is a large ferry that takes you over to the other part of Australia on a roughly 12 hour trip and you can take your car. Which we did with lots of our own supplies of food etc....
You drive on following others....
There is the other side of the ferry where you exit when you arrive at Tassie ☺
A better photo of it while we waited in queue
After a couple of hours finally able to board, driving through
Even had to navigate down a rather steep ramp lol
All parked ready to now walk up the stairs to our room for the night as this is an overnight ferry ☺
Look fun times for us with bunk beds lol
Good old bathroom
Out on the balcony you can see the 2 cruise ships
The queue of cars still boarding and caravans too
Another attempt at a selfie with Spirit of Tassie sign lol
There it is.....
On of the cruise ships had a massive outdoor screen!
Off we go and the seagulls were going crazy
Next morning and the sun was shining, but cool breeze
Last snap of the interior of Spirit. There is gift shop, information shop, bar, restaurants etc etc
And we had a bit of a delay leaving in our car as 2 people had battery problems....soon fixed though
On the road we go and the sunny flowers were very happy indeed
Stopped off at a park with some falls called Guide falls
Next larger section
View from the platform flowing down the creek
The wonderful stairs down to the lower area of falls
Bottom of stairs and looking back towards the falls
Lovely flowing creek
A tree had fallen down but still held in place above the creek
Other view and back to another small fall
A house up the hill above these falls ☺
We visited this museum on our drive to our accommodation....
Penny farthing, goodness knows how those clever people rode them
Plenty of rocks and gems and crystals here
Old record player
Neat old sewing machine.....
View down the backyard area of museum
Someone with a bit of humour must have put this together
And mostly empty with cars for sale.....
We have been at our accommodation for 1 night and today
We went for a drive to a nearby beach
And we were able to drive onto this beach with our 4 wheel drive ☺☺and look way out there on the small island...
View of other lighthouse from the back of our car
The car on the beach getting ready to drive back
We drove around to another area for a walk
Steep climb down with a few steps
The beach and boy was it windy and rather cold (freezing lol)
Kangaroo paw print....actually there were a lot and they must have come down
to drink the fresh water flowing down to the sea
Look at the mans hair blowing wildly lol
The sand was whipping past too.....
Just a few seaside flowers
We then had a short walk here, which is walking distance from where we are staying
Little bridge over the creek flowing down to the sea
A chair for enjoying the creek and maybe see a platypus information here
Looking back down the creek
And back to the sea again....
Hope you enjoyed this post and all the pictures and will be back again with more as we are going on a river cruise tomorrow ☺☺
take care people xo
