Well the plan was to take the gravel road from Arthur River to Corinna and save some time and go through some pretty remote country. But wiser heads prevailed and we went back the way we came to Wynyard and then travelled south via Rosebery where we stopped for some much needed cakes and coffee.

We walked the track to Montezuma Falls. Great little trek, and learnt about the history of its making by the railway workers. Incredible the effort that went into the construction of the line.

Running out of fuel we made it to Zeehan where there were no open bowsers and the automatic keypad was stuffed! I nursed the bus into Strahan on diesel fumes!

Typically good caravan park at Strahan.

We made it early enough in the day to have a wonder around, the winds were starting to pick up and we knew we were in for a rough night. In the meantime we took the short trip up to Halifax Falls.

We had tickets to see the famous play "The Ship That Never Was" What a hoot, we ended up getting into the act as water pumpers on the boat. If you get a chance do go and see this bit of history.

And it bucketed down and blew all night!
