Beautiful Tasmania. In January we took our car, loaded it with camping equipment and took the ferry over from Melbourne to Devenport in the North of Tasmania. From there we started a 10 day camping trip all across the island from Cradle Mountain to the Bay of Fires to Freycinet National Park down to Hobart and Bruny Island.
The Bay of Fires on the Eastern coast is clearly one of my favorite places. We stayed at the small town of St Helens and ventured out to explore the region from there. The Bay of Fires is actually not only single bay, but many little coves and bays. They are famous for the clear blue waters and red-coloured granite rocks. It is such a beautiful sight! The ocean is freeeeezing cold though....
The sand is white, clean and soft. The air is fresh with a slight breeze from the Southern Ocean. The water is clear and blue and green. The rocks are red against the sunshine, shining in contrast to the white beach and blue waters.
It is spectacular!!
Hopefully I get around to share more pictures from Tasmania soon especially from Cradle Mountain where we took a beautiful hike and met the local wombats!
