Mt Field National Park, Cygnet and lots of airports
The last four days of our trip offered quite a lot of variety. Mt Field was pretty, although the weather prevented us from hiking the alpine trails, but the waterfalls and forest further down was a good alternative. Also, quite to our surprise, the food at the National Park Hotel was decent. It was pub…
Lake St Clair National Park
We got lucky with the weather, again. After a nice leg stretcher halfway round the lake we took advantage of the brilliant weather and did the Mt Rufus Circuit the next day. What can I say, best hike of this trip! Not particularly exhausting, but wonderful views to all sides and great stretches of wildflowers…
Corinna is in the middle of nowhere, in the heart of the Tarkine, an area full of beautiful temperate rainforest, rivers, and wild wild coastline. Corinna used to be a logging town, and has now been converted into a low key eco wilderness thing. We had a fantastic cabin, superclean, superspacious, with windows right on…
Some ruminations on Tassie cuisine
One thing I found rather disappointing was the food in Tassie. All the advertisements and the big words, but at the end of the day you get chips and wedges as a vegetarian.

I’ve shed some light on gay living in Oz in my posts from our QLD and NT trip in 2015 already. But here in Tassie they’re taking it to a whole new level. And I’m glad to see that the society has evolved and progressed so far! The latest thing in the Tassie gay community…
Corinna „ferry“ ☺, flowers, lake, and more flowers the latter three all at Lake St Clair National Park
Some Piggy pictures
In order: Russell falls in Mt Field National Park, the bestest cream tea in Tassie, wildflowers on Mt Rufus, Australian ice cream, I wonder whether there’s Gaytime Barramundi flavor?
The weather still held the next day, so we decided to head for Cradle Mountain Peak, taking the Overland Track route from Ronny Creek, via Marion’s Lookout, and then circled back via Face Track, Lake Wilks Track, and Dove Lake track. Not a cloud in the sky, brilliant weather, and no wind either. This is…
