May 1 - Gladstone

May 1 - Gladstone

2014. May 01.

On the way to Gladstone was a forest with ancient myrtles, some were over 400 years old. The area was smaller than a football field but full of huge sentinels giving off a very peaceful stillness.
Up the road was Blue Lake, actually the remnants of a tin mine. The acidic water gives it the bright blue colour.
We free camped in the town and drove around the area doing recon for the next spot.

 

Apr 27 - Mt Michael

Apr 27 - Mt Michael

2014. April 29.

Spent a week camped at the pub with Phil and Paula, really good company and lots of chats and laughs.
A cold, green, carpeted, fungi filled forest walk of about 4 kms gave us a wide variety of fungi and moss that held us spellbound.  Purple, brown, red, cream. yellow, white, flowered, twisted, on fire, vertical, plated, single and in communities.
Phil, Paula and I slipped over on the mossy rocks but Denise escaped that mbarassment.

 

Apr 27 - Goblin Walk

Apr 27 - Goblin Walk

2014. April 27.

This short 400 metre walk turned into over a km because of no signs, but it was a very pretty and interesting place with carpets of lichen that looked like snow and beautiful textures and subtle colours . The reflections were so clear that you couldn't tell what was reall or reflection. Very cold at about 5 degrees in there.

Apr 25 - Halls Falls

Apr 25 - Halls Falls

2014. April 25.

These falls were typically green with moss and boulders strewn about. Being so wet an area, fungi was abundant, red, yellow, brown, cream and black ones. Again a very cold day, needing layers of clothing, coats, gloves and beanie.

Apr 23 - St Columba and Ralph Falls

Apr 23 - St Columba and Ralph Falls

2014. April 30.

St Columba Falls one of the highest falls in Tasmania and certainly impressive with water cascading in different directions.
Ralph Falls had a columnar cliff face with a view to die for.
The day was bleak and foggy but made it more impressive really, fitted the feel of the area.
It was about 8 degrees in the forest so we were were rugged up with layers of coats, gloves and beanie.

 

Apr 14 - Bay Of Fires

Apr 14 - Bay Of Fires

2014. April 19.

We free camped for a week over Easter on a point with beautiful beaches and red rocks all around us.
The water was crystal clear so when the waves rolled in, the green shone through brilliantly.
All up the coastline, the red boulders and huge waves thundering over them kept us captivated for hours so there are lots of similar photos.
Bought a fire pit that kept us warmer on the cold evenings and cooked oysters, scallops and calamari on it the first night which justified the purchase straight away.
This was another magical place and we rested, walked around and just took it in.
We were very lucky to get such a quiet spot where each camp was separated from others around it.

 

Apr 8 - St Marys area

Apr 8 - St Marys area

2014. April 20.

Went 50 kms up to Evercreech Forest where one walk took in the largest white gums in the world at 91 metres tall.
The other walk took in fungi and a waterfall.
Mathine falls was spectacular with its 4 tiers of falls. Had to scramble up a dangerously, slippery steep slope to get to the higher ones but it was well worth it.

 

Apr 5 - Bicheno

Apr 5 - Bicheno

2014. April 06.

A quiet, tidy little town where we settled for a few days and took in the best blowhole we've seen in Australia, at about 15 metres high at least.
The surrounding area had a nearby reserve with the clearest waterhole in its river system, beautiful beaches.
