Travelling around Australia in a motorhome. A story of our travels starting from NSW then through Queensland, across to Northern Territory and Western Australia, then to South Australia, Victoria and finally across the seas to Tasmania. We have enjoyed everywhere we have visited and look forward to setting off again in our motorhome.

Marrawah 21 February 2008

After having a look around Smithton, we set off for the west coast. This will be the last area of Tasmania for us to explore and is signalling that the end is near.
Marrawah consists of a pub, a tiny general store with very little, a hall and two churches. Green Point, reputed to be one of the best surfing beaches in Oz, is a few kilometres down the road. It is a dedicated camp spot and made a lovely overnight stop. While there wasn’t much surf, we enjoyed walking along the beach in the warm sun. It was a still calm afternoon and the beach looked like one of the best east coast beaches. We explored nearby dirt roads and found deserted beaches that were intersected by beautiful rocky outcrops with wind tolerant vegetation of autumn tones and varied textures. Sections were devoid of sand and filled with large rolled rocks. There is a lot of kelp on the beaches and there is a small industry drying kelp for fertilisers.
Quite a few campers crowded n to the allocated space which is a rare experience for us. It was still very peaceful as everyone respected each other.
