I’ve learned to double check any adventure plans Tim makes for us. It happened again at beautiful Freycinet Park in Tasmania. We went there to stretch our legs before driving to Launceston for our flight to Flinders Island.
We’ve been there before, it’s a beautiful spot, and he suggested we hike up Mt Amos for the views. I was dubious. He wanted to bypass the ranger’s station and head straight to the trailhead. I said, “no thanks, I want to talk to the ranger”.
I mentioned Tim’s plans and he pulled out this photo, which they show as a quick overview of the hike.
It only represents about 40% of the walk. I hate having to use my hands when I walk. And I would have really hated the return trip. So we walked an 11 km loop instead. It was beautiful.
This bench was designed as part of a student design project. I think I rested here in 2011. It is holding up well.
Every hotel should stock the mini fridge with Tim Tams with the full cream milk.
Freycinet offered a lot of the same views, rocks, lichen, and cliffs as Deal Island. Soon.
