Ah the Southwest, it’s a place that gets me all emotional just thinking about it. I remember the first time we drove past Maydena and entered the Southwest National Park. The misty peaks came into view on either side of the road and the vistas would burst into view and just completely blow your mind … More The Needles
The Tasman peninsula is renowned for its spectacular walks, mainly the coastal cliff walks that line its beautiful capes. Further inland however, there’s this little adventure in the woods, Clarks Cliffs. It’s an 8km walk through thick eucalypt forest that is at times tranquil and other times rather challenging. On the day we ventured into … More Clarks Cliffs
This was quite possibly the toughest day walk yet, 19km of pure slog, completely exposed the entire way and underneath a sun that just would not quit. Don’t let that put you off though, it was a glorious walk! We started at the Lake Dobson carpark, walking up through the Snowgum Track before briefly joining … More Mount Field West, the struggle is real.
Following on from the last post, we continued our East Coast birthday adventure further North just past Bicheno. Douglas Apsley National Park is home to a very popular watering hole a mere 5 minute walk from the car park. It’s certainly very nice (provided there aren’t a bunch of bogans playing loud music and smoking) … More Douglas Apsley National Park
The East Coast of Tasmania is THE place to go on this island if you wish to get away from it all, put your feet up and completely unwind from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The fact that life in Tassie is already pretty chilled means that a trip up the East Coast … More East Coast Relaxation
It’s been a while between blog posts and for that I do apologise. Summer has arrived in Tasmania but it seems nobody told the weather that. We’ve been stuck indoors on weekends when we’d be itching to get out and about into the Tasmanian wilderness and add a few more peaks to our Abel list. … More Trestle Mountain
SING ALONG EVERYBODY 🙂 Every night in my dreams I see you, I feel you That is how I know you, go on Far across the distance And spaces between us You have come to show you, go on Near, far, wherever you are I believe that the Hartz does go on Once more you … More My Hartz will go on
If there’s one thing I’d recommend more than anything people do when visiting Tasmania, it’s a Pennicott Wilderness Journey. Having previously been on the Bruny Island version of their boat trips, I was excited to see what their Tasman Island edition would be like. Gemma had previously mentioned that she’d never been on one, so I … More Whale Whale what do we have here?
Last weekend was Gemma’s birthday and to celebrate, we went on a spot of adventuring. The initial plan had been to do a part of the Overland Track, namely climbing Mount Ossa, Tasmania’s highest peak and exploring the surrounds. That has been put on the back burner for another day. Plan B was to hike … More Mountains, Waterfalls and Unattainable Lakes
It’s been a bit of a hiatus between adventures after poor Gemma was unwell for a bit. The itch to get out and explore more of Tassie was at last scratched last weekend, as we took a trip South……waaaaaaaay South. Pretty much as far South as you can possibly go in Australia to be precise. … More South Cape Bay
