Had a great sleep in by the water. Enjoyed a quiet breakfast, not seeing a single person! Wow don’t you know you’re in Tassie!
Arrived at Jansz just in time for lunch. Enjoyed a vintage 2005 Rose Sparking which was divine, especially with a platter of King Island cheeses and Bob’s Beetroots – a lovely sweet pickled variety, dried fruits and stunning shady ash trees and timber outdoor settings around a lake. This is the life. We shared our table with a german couple here on holiday. Actually they were going to rent a house in Noosa for 4 years from next winter. They were heading off back to Melbourne tomorrow for a couple of weeks before heading home for spring. They’re just about finished up a 4 month holiday of Australia. Their 4th! What a great life eh?!
Decided it was time to move on and enjoy the rest of the bright sunny days and daylight. Arrived at Lilydale around 4pm. Most of the nice shops had closed and it was all but missed. Looked like a great walk to the Lilydale falls, but had to move on to Scottsdale to empty the toilet (important stuff).
Arrived in Scottsdale in time to see all the shops closed – including the video store??? Had a walk around till it got too cold and then found the dump point and then the show grounds for sleep.
this carving was made by a colourful local who has since died. he hated waste and when this tree fell over he carved it into the town's new tourism centrepiece.
