And I'll say " Well done Frank" !! It is the Walls of Jerusalem, just inside Herrod's Gate, on yet another perfect Tasmanian day.
An excellent little hike ...... we made it a day walk, but there were quite a few with backpacks heading off for a few days.

Tassie is a wonderful part of the world. So scenic, so much history and nature abounds. Looking forward to our 6th return!

Hehe, I knew you'd know it Stephen! Thanks for holding back and giving others a go.

It is a very interesting ruin with a history typical of those pioneers who saw a couple of freakish good seasons and then overstocked like crazy, to begin their demise.

To give people an idea of the general area, we stayed at Almerta Station Stay, north of the mystery place.

Some more pics:

Same state. though, between Quorn and Hawker.

If you use Traveller it should jump out at you.

In its heyday 70 families lived there. It had a school andpost office and 40,000 sheep were shorn a year.

It's between Quorn and Hawker, and west of Cradock.

I think it might be the unrestored section of Kanyaka homestead, there is a cemetery across the creek there.

Spot on, Mikee5, well done. You say "Unrestored section", which implies there is a restored part. On our visit there a few weeks ago there was no restoration as such, but considerable preservation with mortar capping on the stone walls and a general air of it being "looked after".

It must have been an impressive place in its heyday.




We didn't visit the cemetery.
