After spending the morning at Battery Point and Hobart Harbour my wife and daughter returned to our hotel for a much needed rest. As is often the case I wasn’t about to sleep the afternoon away and decided to drive to Mt Wellington instead. It had snowed heavily the night before and I wasn’t sure […]
The walk to Mt Amos in Freycinet National Park was the last walk that I had planned to do during our 12 day trip in Tasmania. It would be an almost 3 hour drive from our accommodation in Hobart to the Wineglass Bay Walker Car Park. The weather forecast indicated that showers were expected from […]
On our 10th day in Tasmania we headed straight to the Salamanca Market which was only a short 2 minute walk from our accommodation. My wife and I love visiting markets as we often find that they are a good place to sample a variety of local products. We were also on the lookout for […]
After spending the morning at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary we headed back to our hotel so that my wife and daughter could have a rest. This left me with 2 hours of exploring time in the Hobart area. Knowing that I would have this time, I researched possible places to visit the night before. One of […]
Today we decided to visit the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary in Brighton. It’s a relatively short 30 minute drive from the centre of Hobart.

Even though it’s the largest national park in Tasmania it’s also the most remote and the least visited. I was particularly attracted to this as many […]
Originally when I was researching for this trip I planned to do a long walk on the trails above Dove Lake. The exact route I planned to take was as follows: Dove Lake car park, Mount Campbell, Hansons Peak, Twisted Lakes, Artists Pool, Face Track, Marions Lookout, Wombat Pool, Lake Lilla, Dove Lake car park.
Dove Lake is a busy place, even in winter. I tried to drive to the lake in the early afternoon but I was unable to get past the boom gate due to high traffic levels. Initially I was a little frustrated but after a quick drive to the Cradle Mountain Visitor Centre I was soon […]
We decided to take it easy on our first full day at Cradle Mountain. Our plan was for all of us to do the Enchanted Walk in the morning while I would do the Dove Lake Circuit on my own in the afternoon.
I love travelling, exploring and most of all, walking in beautiful natural locations. One of the things I enjoy most before travelling is researching. Often in my research I have stumbled across blogs with pictures and track notes that I have found incredibly useful.
