Our Tasmanian Adventure – Day 11

Slept in! We had woken early and saw there were too many clouds for a good sunrise, so went back to bed. When we eventually did venture out we drove up the coast to Eddystone Point Lighthouse and Mount William National Park, we spent some time exploring this area, (with a sky still full of grey clouds).

Autumn Outings – The Ada Tree

Trying to get to the Ada Tree is a lesson in miscommunication, according to various sources it is in Noojee, Warburton, Neerim and Baw Baw, it’s actually in between pretty much all of them in the middle of nowhere, GPS is pretty useless and you need to follow the signs, marked at just far enough…

I have visited Noojee a few times, especially lately, we stopped in there to photograph the train at the History Centre a few weeks back.

On a recent day trip, I found this glorious Banksia tree with giant blossoms, almost finished, but still with some blush of colour, right next to where our car was parked. I had to grab a quick Five minutes with these before I jumped back in the car. Would you like to join RegularRandom? Here’s…
