Tasmania holidays

Hi everyone, currently sitting at Hobart airport waiting for our delayed flight home after a two week driving holiday of Tasmania.  My first ever visit.  Loved it and will have to visit again sometime.  Some photos for you. So hard to reduce the photos. One a day and some just had to be two for the day.  This post didn't go through at Hobart.  We are now back home in Gordonvale near Cairns.  A lot of travelling but it is always nice to be home and cuddle our dog.

View from our Wrest Point motel room.  First night in Hobart,Tasmania

Steps up to lookout at Bruny Island, yes we both had sore calves the next day

The oldest stone span bridge in Australia - Richmond, Tas

Archway on way to Port Arthur, Tas

Port Arthur

Forest of some Australia's tallest eucalyptus trees

Some pretty scenery on walk to St Clair Lake

Steam train ride through the forest at Queenstown. They are turning the engine around ready for the trip home

A baby Echidna came to visit everyone on the platform. The staff were even excited as they hadnt seen one that close. A baby echidna is called a puggle

Me on one of the many walking tracks around and over Cradle Mountain 

We saw a few Tassie Devils in a park which gets them ready to go back into the wild. This guy yawned for us which gives a typical Tassie Devil pose. 

 More amazing scenery on our way

Cataract Gorge in Launceston 

Tree stump carvings as a wR memoial at Legerwood Tas

With this scenery how could this bull be anything other than relaxed.
