Hi guys,

I am back now from Tasmania a bit earlier than expected being May 1, 2018.   Took a caretakers position for the next nine months on Kangaroo Island in SA.   But I managed to take some magic shots while over in Tassie, see attachments.   Gwynnie  floating.gif

Hello Fellow travellers,

I have left Tasmania now, it took nine hours by the 'Spirit of Tasmania' Ferry to reach the mainland. The seas were kind and I highly recommend taking a recliner chair offer to get some sleep. For those with grander ideals there is always a cabin.  Word of warning:-BOOK EARLY!!!  The ferry is always heavily reserved by the local Grey Nomads heading north for the winter and the freight run by large semi-trailers. However there is always STAND-BY opportunity so if you haven't book just call up and place your name on a wait list!!

Whilst travelling from Melbourne to Adelaide I took the opportunity to travel via the 'Great Ocean Road' to see the 'Twelve Apostles' and the London Arch.  The weather was mildly windy and partly cloudy, but I did manage to take some 'OMG' photos in between the cloud cover. 

Now I am doing some house sitting on Kangaroo Island for nine months.  The SEALINK ferry journey was a short 50 minutes, clear sailing and calm seas most of the way.  Not too much of a worry booking as they run back & forth about 4 times a day, but again book well in advance of your expected travel dates.  Take care   Gwynnie   floating.gif (recorded my trip on the Solo Traveller forum)

Hello everyone, as you know I have been given a wonderful opportunity to house sit on Kangaroo Island for the next eight months.  It is a short 45 minutes by ferry from Cape Jervis to Penneshaw in South Australia.  I took some interesting photos yesterday of the Kingscote Jetty and some beautiful early sunrise shots outside the house this morning.  Hope you like them.....   Gwynnie  floating.gif

My magic place is wherever I am at the time. Unfortunately both my partner, Mel, and I work full time so we can only get away a few times a year. Fortunately we live in Hobart, so we have a lot of great places to visit not far from home. Had a week off before easter and travelled the north east and spent the last two nights at Cosy Corner South,in the Bay of Fires region, near St Helens. Not only the location but the people you meet too.

Love Cosy Corner North - and so many other places in Tassy - ****le Creek was fantastic, we walked out to the cliffs at the cape - freezing on a hot day.

Enjoy your travels - your time will come to do it full time.

HI guys,

Since the cold is upon us some of you may be heading NORTH!!  So I always think of Broome at this time of year and would like to suggest a wonderful place I stayed at just 94 kms south of Broome called...'Barns Hill Station stay.   It has wonderful sunsets, brilliant beach scenery and a stunning rock pool!!  Gwynnie floating.gif
