WILD TASMANIA...Mole Creek Karst search of King Solomon's Mine. We left Cradle Mountain the way we came...not because we chose to but because to get out you travel north. We had a destination...the only one in our trip that had a date of arrival...and that date was approaching. Which of Tassie's other National Parks can we discover before we get there? Tasmania is one of the World's ancient lands...moulded by ice ages...glacial scouring...tectonic forces. We have meandered through its wildernesses...marvelling at its unique geology, flora and fauna...and let's not forget the fungi. Time to see what is under the ground...time to do a bit of caving. ****** The great adventure to find hidden treasure in Africa epitomised by H.

Day 293 - Mole Creek We have a birthday shout out to our dear friend Tez all the way over in Norway! We hope you're having fun in the snow Tez and we'll speak to you soon.

Day 292 - Sisters Beach to Mole Creek The weather hadn’t made much of an improvement overnight, the dark skies weren’t lifting and the thick drizzle was still making us soggy. Sisters Beach itself looked bright and cheerful though, a naturally beautiful outlook always does. Luckily the twigs in the toilet doors were still in place when we rushed across this morning; there was no peeing in the bush for us! We talked a lot last night about travelling through the west coast of Tasmania and our decision is that it’s just going to have to wait. We may do it on this trip, we may not but none of us are sure we want to ‘risk’ the link road so the plan is to toddle off for pastures new today heading for Mole Creek just ... read more
