Avisit to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, because we can't go anywhere without me getting up close and personal with some animals (I was however disappointed to be told that I couldn't purchase a "feeding frenzy" excursion without 24 hours prior notice… oh well, next time!)
The kangaroos here were MUCH more
aggressive friendly than we are used to.

the infamous Tasmanian Devil
From there we headed south east to Port Arthur and spent a few, chilly hours touring the world heritage site by land and sea. On the way we stopped to see the beauty of the Tasman Peninsula, and caught a few fun road signs too.

the Tasman Arch
The next day, we got up early, and caught the ferry to Bruny Island where we spent the day hiking, and on a cruise in the Southern Ocean. It was, in a word, amazing.

Grass Point Hike
It was a hard day to top, but we tried… next we trekked up to Launceston to see Cataract Gorge, and all the way up to the northern coast. We jumped in on a tour in Low Head on the Bass Strait and saw some fairy penguins!

Tasmania, you are beautiful, and we hope to see you again.
