Time to reminisce – Tasmania 2006 adventure part 1

About 10 years had passed since we had visited the beautiful Apple Isle and without ever camping there it was well and truly time to pack the Rodeo and point the bonnet south. We had fallen in love with Tassie the first time we ventured to this tiny island state and had always yearned to…

Basing ourselves in Carnarvon for a couple nights we decided to explore north up the coast visiting Quobba Blowholes and Quobba Point before venturing further north along an outstanding coastal drive, albeit rough in places to Quobba Station and Red Cliffs.

With much sadness it was all too soon time to depart the splendors of Litchfield National Park and start our roundabout journey home.
