Tasmania - Australia
The Place: Off the mainland of Australia, we took a drive from Hobart through the centre of Tassie, via Queenstown to spend a long weekend in Burnie. The scenic drive took us about 8 hours via some very different Aussie landscape including vast lakes and snowy mountains. On the way back to Hobart we headed via 'the Nut' (last pic) to spend a night and then onwards to Cradle mountain for a hike down to the lake. We missed a view of the mountain due to overcast conditions, however were rewarded with some amazing wombat and wallaby spotting. We must've seen about 50 wombats in the space of a few hours of walking, most were pretty active, some running alongside us.
