2017/01/24 Tasmania Day 10: Strahan
π 2017-01-24 01:01 in Australia, Tasmania2017, Trips
After finishing our long hike and mountain accent at Cradle Mountain, I drove to Strahan, a quick easy drive without traffic.


Our merc was a pleasure to drive and got us through the twisty roads to Strahan

Next we went to mariah island, where many convicts were kept under bad conditions. A ranger gave us a great story of what happened:






Back on land, we had a look at a pine sawmill:




Next, we went to sand dunes to ride an 4WD ATV, that was a lot of fun:




we eventually got to the ocean dunes

I made it up the sand dune the first time (where others bailed and rolled back)

Then, we got back to town to see The Ship That Never Was play. That was the biggest disappointment of the day, as well as waste of time. It was really silly and made for kids (only):



Next (yes, long days), we went to another river where we were hoping to see a wild platipus, but we weren't lucky enough:



And this was finally the end of our day. We had a sunset boat trip planned to see some mutton birds and penguins, but sadly it was cancelled, so that was it for our long day :)
