The Remarkable Cave on the Tasman Peninsula

We’d heard about the Remarkable Cave on the Tasman Peninsula, but when we got there we saw a sign for a lookout that we didn’t know about.  The Maingon Bay Lookout was one of my favourite lookouts ever. There’s no way to convey how amazing it is through pictures.  You’re just going to have to go there yourself! Here’s a close-up of Cape Raoul in the distance.  See all the pinnacles and towers?  There’s a walk you can do to … Read More

Port Arthur, part two

Part one can be found here. After our harbour cruise and some food we headed into the grounds to tour some of the buildings.    We started with the penitentiary. I really wish there had been some signs with some detail to tell us more about this building.  Other buildings did have information, so maybe we somehow missed it with this one. Once you went around back there was a walkway that led to another view. It’s been long enough that … Read More

Port Arthur, part one

During our stay on the Tasman Peninsula we visited Port Arthur, a must-see for Australian history.  It was fascinating.

The Magical Beach in Dunalley, Tasmania

Our next stop after Freycinet National Park was the Tasman Peninsula.  We stayed in Dunnalley at a spot right next to the beach.  The first day we were there we headed down for a look.  Thank goodness we did because it was the only good beach day we had during our stay there.  The tide was out, the waves were calm, the water was shallow and warm.  But there was something magical about this beach that we hadn’t anticipated. There … Read More

We’re In the ACT!

So the blog’s been kind of silent.  We came back from Tasmania toward the end of March after five weeks there.  We loved it.  We were exhausted and spent some time resting and recovering.  We went back home for Easter and stayed a couple of weeks.  Since then we’ve travelled into New South Wales.  We spent time in Wagga Wagga and Junee.  Now we are in Canberra and plan to stay a week or two to explore our capital city. … Read More
