This page details days 13 - 21 on Tasmania's east coast from Hobart back to Devonport including Bruny Island, Bay of Fires and Mt William National Park.

This is our second day in Hobart but we really didn't plan to do anything touristy here with our main aim to get our gear dry. Once we'd setup the Chinese laundry (swags, mattresses, etc laid out across the room with heater on full) we took off on a day trip south via Franklin and Geeveston to the Hartz Mountain National Park for some walks (in the cold rain) and also to Tahune Forest Airwalk (very touristy). We made a loop trip by coming back via a back road signposted to the Snowy Range Trout Fishery Road on through small townships of Glen Huon (great scenery and more pleasant than driving the tourist route on the tar and best of all, multiple crossings and views of the Huon river).

After another day in the rain we were most thankful to have dry warm beds to return to and most pleased to see our gear had dried out successfully. The motel's common kitchen was well equipped and we quickly prepared a meal of minted lamb chops, snow peas, corn cobs and ate in a very civilised manner in our cosy room whilst the rain continued outside.
