Our last stay in Tasmania
18.02.2013 - 19.02.2013 24 °C
From Cradle Mountain we travelled back to Devonport where we camped one night next to the Devonport Swans footy field before we will sail back to Melbourne on the Spirit of Tasmania later tonight.
Devonport is situated at the mouth of the Mersey River and is Tasmania's third largest city and is most known as the port of the Spirit of Tasmania, the vehicle ferry connecting Melbourne and Tasmania.
We have thorougly enjoyed our seven weeks of travelling around Tasmania. The rugged west coast, the remote south-west wilderness, delightful Bruny Island, the beautiful east coast - especially Bay of Fires - and the magnificent mountains, especially Walls of Jerusalem and Cradle Mountain and their glacial lakes, were all highlights of our tour. We have enjoyed good weather, especially during the last 5 weeks, but I must admit, I don't want to camp here during winter! The wildlife is exotic and I am still cursing the Tasmanian devil that stole one of my Crocs. The food, especially the seafood, was devine and the wine world class. We will have good memories of Tassie.
