North East Tasmania

The landscape throughout Tasmania is quite varied but the biggest impression is the obvious drought they have experienced over the last few years. What we expected in green rolling hills has been replaced by brown rolling hills but still quite beautiful. After leaving Latrobe we headed across the top of the island to Beauty Point where we visited the Sea Horse Farm on the Tamar River and made it to the Mount William National Park where we made camp for several nights.

After a few days we found the camp at the national Park a tad desolate and on the recommendation of John and Dawn we set up camp at Musselroe Bay.

We settled in. Popped the boat in the water and when the weather allowed, pottered around the river and the bay. The catch in the bay included squid. whiting and a plethora of huge oysters, clams and black muscles one of which gave us an interesting few days with a unexpected weight loss program!

On our departure Dawn and John presented us with two huge abalone which we accepted with thanks and cooked that evening. YUM!
