Alum Cliffs and Melita Honey

Peter Rowbottom and I were the only ones interested in visiting the  Alum Cliffs. They are only six or seven kilometres from the pub. A short 700m walk to a viewing platform with views of the Mersey River. Several information boards highlight the aborigine history in the area but the views of the river is what everyone has come to see.

After a short walk we decided a trip to Chudleigh to check out the Honey Museum was a great idea.

The best bit was a leatherwood honey ice cream after a tour of the free museum. It is always good to taste local produce and although there is a big range of products, an icecream always goes down well.

  1. Hi Chris. I’m jealous of you eating Leatherwood honey ice cream! I think its one of Tassie’s finest exports! Sounds like a nice trip, I remember Mole Creek from a trip we made many years ago, especially the wildlife park. Enjoy.
