Four of us went for a short drive to see what was about, we only went 6-7km and Tom needed a cofee fix. Now the rest of us not wanting to be anti social thought we had better join him. Orford has a very picturesque setting, sitting on the edge of the Prosser River and our view from the Gateway Cafe let us soak it all up.
Our next stop was the Tasmanian Bushland Garden which is near Pulchello Native Gardens just below Buckland. What a fantastic place to stretch the legs and see what a bunch of volunteers can do with a disused quarry.
It is a work in progress but it still offers something for everyone, lots of short walks, some very artistic sculptures and lots of native vegetation.
On the way back to Triabunna we stop and check out the stained glas windows in the historic Buckland Church.
Ther is a self contained campground behind the Buckland Hotel, which was built around 1835.
After all this sightseeing, it was time for lunch. “Scorchers by the River Pizza Cafe” was an ideal place as it had wood fired pizzas that were just so tasty.
