Leaving Campbell Town the wind was blowing, we headed for Dunalley via Campania and Sorell. We did encounter some nasty showers but they didn’t last long.
We reached the Dunalley Hotel, the camping area was right next door, we found a good site with some small trees providing a little wind break and set up camp. Two couples settled in for the night and three more rigs arrived the next day.
Dianne and I had a quick trip to Eaglehawk Neck on the Friday to check out a couple of the natural attractions. The Tesselated pavement, the Blowhole, Tasman Arch and Devils Kitchen are all rock formations just a few minutes apart.
Eric Walters came with me for a drive around the Tasman Peninsula and we spent the afternoon exploring some of what the area had to offer.
The area is full of natural attractions and if you are game, you can climb over rail and explore when the conditions are safe
It is just a short walk down some easily managed steps.
Coal Mine Ruins, Tasman Peninsula
Eric and I paid a fleeting visit to the Coal Mine Ruins, we could have spent half a day here if we had the time. Everywhere you turned there was something else to see and self guided walking trails leading in all directions.
Eric at the entrance of one lot of solitary confinement cells. There were plenty of them on site
Eric inside a solitary confinement cell, just to give a idea how small they were and he was in total darkness. I could not see him when he was only a metre or two from me. Just imagine what it would be like when the door was shut.
We now headed back to Dunalley and we were going to be late for “happy hour”.
