We awoke Sunday morning on our third day in Tassie to another gorgeous sunrise! We certainly were blessed with the weather each day.

We packed up everything for 2-day adventure trip and set off from Wyndham, Seven Mile Beach to drive across the south west of Tasmania.

You can watch this video to see some of our trip, starting with the lovely sunrise and then heading off over the Tasman Bridge over the Derwent River and on towards Geeveston and Hastings.


The view of Mt Wellington was nice and clear as we drove over the Derwent, unlike yesterday when it was up in the clouds.

We continued through Hobart, down Davey St and on towards the Huon Valley. We made a short stop at the Casino and Entertainment centre for quick look.

Road Sign From Hobart to Geeveston & Dover, TasmaniaAfter we had taken some nice photos here we were about to set off when we saw a beautiful rainbow starting on Mt Wellington and then arching up into the sky towards the direction that we were headed. It was like a sign that God was going before us to bless us with a wonderful day.

We continued on and drove through Huonville, Geeveston and Dover. We even veered a little off track to check out the small seaside town of Southport, since we are from the Gold Coast and also have a Southport.


Along the way we went past a group of twenty or so kayaks heading south westerly down the Huon River. They were really paddling hard and moving at a good speed. You can see them in the video above and the photo below.

In our next post we will get out tickets and head off for our tour of the Newdegate cave at Hastings.

So until then, Remember to Enjoy Life and Enjoy a Drive in the Country!
