After we got there we walked a few kilometres out to the fossils cliffs. We were surprised to see many, many kangaroos.
The Cape Barren Goose is only found in Southern Australia and has that distinctive green on its beak. A few have been transplanted here.
Hobart is the capital of Tasmania and is becoming quite trendy - lots of little shops/markets and food vendors. Tourism and house prices are increasing due to aggressive marketing. (Kind of reminds me of the situation in Newfoundland)
Hobart is picturesquely set along a series of little bays with the towering Mount Wellington in the background. We drove to the top for the stunning view. It’s only 12 km but took about 20 mins along a very windy road. At an altitude of 1,271 m the wind was blowing ferociously and it felt colder than Vernon when we left! We didn’t stay long.
As expected my favourite was the stout with its distinctive coffee/chocolate flavour!
Looks like you two are having a blast. Looking at Ross’ picture in front of the beer “samples”.....has he lost a bunch of weight?
Continue having fun, you two.
Jim and Mavis
We’re definitely enjoying ourselves Jim.
