Our Tasmanian Roadtrip - Part 2

When you last left us we had just finished our first day in the southern state, Tasmania and were heading off to Cataract Gorge. Cataract Gorge is magnificent and there is no other way to emphasise this fact than by taking the chairlift. About 10 metres above tumbling, turning, bubbling rapids, swinging in a loose chair. It is the perfect place to clear your head and think. When we reached the top we took a walk to enjoy the beauty of the reserve. Bright blooms boasted from every corner. Green leafy pathways and 3 magnificent peacocks strutting around the place.
Morgan took a tumble in a muddy puddle as we walked and a little while later we went back to the car. It was like stepping out of a bubble. Fantastic. Breath-taking. Cataract Gorge - 10/10

Our Tasmanian Roadtrip

A few weeks ago we set off for the Brisbane Airport, to catch a flight to Launceston. Unfortunately there was a bit of trouble with some turbulence and steaming hot chocolate that was a bit nasty but to ignore that fact otherwise, the flight was wonderful. Then we got our hire car and drove to our first stop - A mining museum. The most fun was probably the giant water wheel you activated by pressing the button. We also got to pull a cart carrying coal to test our strength. The we piled into the car and went on to our next stop - Cataract Gorge.
