Australia Adventure Dec 2014, 2 Swansea

The We The Dec 8, Monday D02 - After a good night sleep, we checked out of our motel and drove down south. That was not before a cheery good morning Tasmania from yours truly.

Southern Tasmania is known for charming cafes and galleries, MONA, Australia's oldest bridge at Richmond, the heritage listed penal settlement at Port Arthur, Bruny Island and the tallest trees and magnificent waterfalls in the picturesque Derwent Valley.

We headed down Tasman Peninsula. However we took a wrong turn and were somewhere in Tasmania. Regardless we were on holiday. So we took the opportunity to enjoy the scenery and snapped away.

Before long, we reached the Pirates Bay. We took some photos before moving on to Blowhole and Devil's Kitchen and Tasman Arch (1hr drive).

Then we drove to Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park before heading down to Port Arthur Historic site.

It was close to 4 pm before we continue our drive to Swansea, East Coast of Tasmania. (2hr drive)

We booked our accommodation at Swansea seaside chalet. It was touted as one facing the sea and with free wifi access. When we checked into our cabin. We found that it was not facing the sea. And for the wifi access it was available at the reception area opened from 9 am to 6 pm. Effectively we were not able to use it... On the bright side, the cabin was clean and smoke free, with 2 portable heaters  - they kept us warm and cosy. We did have 2 good night sleep. (254)

Oh yes, I have to say the seafood here especially oysters were really fat and juicy.
