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.

Burnie 26 February 2008

The night was very quiet and the morning perfect! The still water and flat beach beckoned us back for another long walk along the beach. We took lots of photos of little rock pool creatures and had to drag ourselves away! Eventually we headed off for Table Cape, the next scenic headland. Along the track in we passed a huge tulip farm. We bought some bulbs and saw amazing photos of the tableland covered in multiple bands of coloured tulips in spring. The soil was an amazing rich red volcanic soil that turned this small area into a little Holland!
The highlight is the view from the look out! The water was an amazing blue and the vistas distant we saw Mt Duncan in the distance! We walked along the cliffs to the old lighthouse and actually felt very hot, though the thermometer stated about 18deg! The sun has a very big bite to it in Tassie!
Drove onto Burnie (Cooee Point), and settled down for a quiet night with only the ocean to disturb us!
