South East Tasmania

These are my tourist photos going down the east coast of Tasmania. The first stop after St Helens was the little village of Falmouth, where I got some nice photos of some Red-capped Plovers. Then I went further south to Lagoons Beach where I camped for the night.

Next stop was at Bicheno where it rained most of the time. Governors Island was out the headlands and had a whole bunch of sea-birds roosting. And it was a good place for roosting boats as well.

And the other side of the island was rough as anything.

I carried on south down to Friendly Beach on the Freycinet Peninsula. It was a great camping spot but my car battery died on me and I had to get a jump start and buy a new battery.

At Triabunna I stopped behind the pub for the night and in the morning had breakfast at Orford. The morning was miserable and raining and drizzling.

I do not know why I took the boat to Maria Island. It rained most of the time I was on the island. But luckily I did get a few good photos.

Next stop after a camp at the Dunalley pub was Eaglehawk Neck. I was quite surprised how beautiful it was.

The beaches looked nice except it was too cold for a swim. brrrr..

I did the tourist thing and looked at the Tasselated Pavement State Reserve and then on to Tasman’s Arch which was quite spectacular.

And Devil’s Kitchen which was very scary to look down at.
