Last stop Hobart ~
It is the capital and most populous city of the Australian island state of Tasmania ~
Hobart is Australia's second oldest capital city after Sydney, New South Wales ~
We are going to spend 5 nights here!
This is my first time staying
in this "use to be shopping mall turn motel"
You never know we may be staying in an "LV" shop =p
The disadvantage is there is no windows except the "big shopping window"
which kind of looks into our privacy ~
As we came at the wrong season which the lavenders are still a little sprout ~
We managed to had a bite at the lavender cafe!
Driving on, we went to Devil's Kitchen, Tasman Arch
which was kind of boring as we really cant see much stuff from the top !
At the southern end of Pirates Bays are some very interesting coastal features.
The Devil's Kitchen is an unusual rock formation carved by the sea through
the sheer rock face of the eastern coast of the Tasman Peninsula.
The Tasmna Arch is a short stroll away.
The Blowhole is a short drive away. And these 3 are grouped
together near Doo Town and Penzance immediately after crossing the
Eaglehawk Neck onto the Tasman Peninsula.
Lastly, i have been wanting to head to Tessellated Pavement to see the beauty ~
But much to my disappointment again, its really not as what i expected to see
from what i saw on the pictures ~
Tessellated pavement is extremely rare, found only in a few places on Earth.
Occurring near sea coasts on flat rock which has broken into regular blocks,
the effect is known as "tessellated pavement" for its resemblance to Roman mosaic
floors (also called tessellated pavement). The pavement takes two forms.
Depressions are known as pan formations, occurring when saltwater wears away
the center portion of the stones into pools. The opposite effect is known as a
loaf formation, when the edges of the stone are worn away leaving a rounded
crown resembling rising bread.

Our next destination is SwanSea ~
i love the sound of the breeze in my ear ~
facing the ocean,
with a new breeze blowing with a world refreshed by freedom
Its a happy day because there are flower petals
in the breeze look like a butterfly flapping its wings =)
We plan the itineary well as we though there was no fantastic food in Swansea
and we though there was no cooking utensils for a cabin but it turn our to be
a real surprise! So in the end, we need to clear our food and here you go ~
Have been waiting for Oyster feast for breakfast ~
but oh well, again was disappointed with it ~
not as fresh as we expected it or have our standard rise?
Freycinet National Park, Wineglass Bay!
Finally im suit up for some treks ~
The trek up was actually a lot more easier than Torres del plain,
hence i shouldnt be complaning or neither am i complaning about it!
I love the trek up, and the wind hitting in my face =)
Love the broadway way at the Cape of Tourville Lighthouse ~
So much of beautiful photo to capture there ~
The Cape Tourville Lighthouse is an unmanned, automatic light,
lighthouse built in 1971. The lighthouse replaced the
Cape Forestier Lighthouse which had been situated on another
jutting off the Freycinet Peninsula known as Lemon Rock.

I have always been looking forward to trek Cradle Mountain~
Hence i was quite disappointed when we arrive super late at the
trekking site and couldnt really trek but took a bus and went
straight to Dove Lake!
Next day, we went to Caratact Gorge which is just beside our apartment!
It is a walking / hiking trails and with the World's longest single span chairlift ~
The chairlift covers some 457 metres, with terminal buildings at the First Basin
(West Launceston) end and idling station at the Cliff Grounds side (Trevallyn).
The central span of 308m is believed to be the longest single chairlift span in the world.
I do have a fear for heights but lucky for the slow speed of the chairlift,
enables me to appreciate and photograph the views!
Follow on we had our lunch at Raspberry Farm!
The raspberry farm serve delicious raspberry products such as
chocolate dipped raspberries, or rich creamy raspberry ice cream.

We decide to clockwise direction down to hobart!
Hence, first stop - LAUNCESTON!
As it was still early, we decide to pop by House of Anvers
for our breakfast and hot chocolate!!!
They serve the best chocolates drinks and chocolates waffles!
We couldnt resist not getting chocolates from there!
I must say,i really love the apartment that we stay in Launceston!
I love the exterior of how it was all made of bricks ~
Although its a bit hassel to walk up and down the stairs but i love the living room!
Decided to have a relax day and all thanks to our Master Chef Joey for the
delicious soup we have been craving for which last us for 2 days!

Tasmania has always been a place i want to go ever
since i've been to down under ~
Because I'm wondering what does Tassie has to offer ~
Spring in Tasmania, a season of transition with the sea breeze
coming into the coast, its cooling!
Decided to go ahead with the ferry overnight from Mel
as i want a slow pace trip rather than one which rush here and there!
I love Melbourne a lot hence decide to stay there for a night and explore
the vibrant, colourful Brighton Beach!
I'm a lover of Sun! Yet I'm dress wrongly for the beach!
If i can, definitely will bring my bikini along =)

A country lying in South sea ~
A slow pace streaming through the down under ~
A mind of refresh ~
A happy person who enjoy the scenery on a detour ~
A place where there is no pressure ~
A place with no party ~
An island that is so kind ~
