After Eaglehawk Neck, I stopped off at Sorell for supplies and headed north towards Oatlands in the Southern Midlands. I stayed at a nice camp just near the Lake Dulverton Conservation Area. There were lots of Black Swans and coots and waterbirds.

Also at Oatlands was this amazing old mill that was fully functional. They could grind flour and there were bags of flour in the mill. I wanted to do a tour to see it working but there was no-one about.

After the lovely weather in the Southern Midlands I heade uphill to Lake Sorell and Interlaken in the Central Highlands, but that night the weather turned windy and rainy, so I headed west back to the highway and down to Bothwell, Hamilton and stayed the night near Hobart at the scout camp.

I got on the ferry at Kettering to Bruny Island and turned off at Barnes Bay where there were a lot of nice birds and a good mooring inlet for yachts.

Unfortunately that afternoon the rain set in so it was not a pleasant place. Luckily there was a little shelter for the campers to cook some dinner.

I was sick of the horrible weather so I bailed out on Bruny Island, drove through Hobart and camped at Mount Field for two nights. Then I set off again for the west, camping at Tungatinah Lagoon

I did the tourist thing at the lookout of the Taralleah Hydro-electric power station.

This was a tree cut down along the Watersmeet track at Lake St Clair. Probably for safety reasons.
