WEEK 17 - Farewell to Tassie

Last week in Tasmania and farewell to this Blog

We had a wonderful lunch at Rosevears Tavern last Sunday. There has been a tavern there since 1831. The present building was built there in 1939 following a devastating fire in the previous tavern.This is how some people arrived for lunch at Rosevears

Before lunch we had a tasting at a nearby winery called Tamar Ridge.

We returned to Launceston for Colleen to fly to Melbourne for the Final Five at the Australian Open and for me to bring the Landcruiser and Quantum back on the Spirit of Tasmania on Sunday 26 January. We would then take the Newell Highway back through New South Wales to return to Brisbane on Thursday 30th January.

Tasmania has been a great place to visit and to tour Round for three and a half months has been a real pleasure (except for some pretty ordinary weather for the first month or two).

Some of our favourite places have been around the north west, particularly the Arthur River and the Wild West Coast, Southern Tasmania around Hobart and the Huon River are very pretty.

Here are a few panoramas to finish this last entry in our blog. We hope you have enjoyed some of the beauty of this part if the world.
Thanks for reading our blog. This is the end. We will blog again in August when we travel to Europe for four months. CND
