First day of a Tasmanian winter…

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Most mainlanders have an image of the Tasmanian winter as being pretty bleak. They don’t realise that, though we are sometimes referred to as the gateway to Antarctica, we have a climate that is exceedingly temperate. To put it in perspective, an island on an equivalent northerly lattiude is Corsica…and we too grow olives and grapes.

Yesterday was the first day of winter. The sun was shining, it was 16 degrees Celsius and I was traversing the Midlands highway on my way home with a Toyota Hilux pickup I had bought in the northern coastal town of Devonport. This is a slide show of some of the pictures I made on my way home.

    • Thank you Dave…Winter in Tasmania, eh? A well-kept secret. Am heading back up that way on Monday with my daughter for a couple of days camping. School holidays; off to Narawntapu National Park, where in winter, the wombats graze like short-sighted miniature bison on the old potato fields.

      • Nice Rob.
