Tasmanian Road trip and free Oysters!

The following day rain was predicted – a perfect day to check out the kids first ever Museum. While it was pretty small and not all that inspiring The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery fascinated the kids for a good couple of hours and they can’t wait to get to visit larger ones in bigger cities in the future.

We then went for a walk in and around the CBD for the next few hours. The rain started bucketing down just as we found ourselves outside the Secret Beginning Cafe which was a Thai restaurant which we then found out had amazing Thai food at fabulous prices (for Australia!)

We headed back home mind afternoon and spent the rest of the day inside as the weather was pretty rough.

The next day we got going pretty early as we had a road trip planned plus I had to get to the airport in the evening.

We started out exploring a bit more of Kingston and then Blackmans Bay and the area of Tinderbox. It took much longer then we thought but eventually we ended up on the channel highway which we followed all the way around the coast before finally arriving in the pretty town of Huonville.

We were all pretty hungry by then so stopped at the Boat House restaurant. It was tiny and could not fit all of us inside so we ordered some take away and sat outside in a lovely park. The Hamburger that I ordered was absolutely scrumptious!

After lunch I suddenly remembered that I still did not have a bow tie for my sisters wedding the next day and so went around a few different shops but had no luck at all. Eventually we had to hit the road again so that I could get to the Hobart Airport in time for my flight to Melbourne.

We made it with a little time to spare and so I bid farewell to my family for the next 48 hours and went and checked in. My next post will be all about my 1,000 km road trip and amazing wedding of my little sister.

In the mean time please enjoy the following photos of our Tasmanian Road Trip.

There were great views throughout the trip. This photo was taken in the Tinderbox area.

We came around one bend when suddenly Seerung yelled out 'stop the car!' I pulled over and a look of sheer joy was all over her face. She explained that the rocks that she saw must have Oysters on them and she was out the door in a flash. Here she is picking a large bag full with the girls watching on.

The weather started to turn a little rough half way through the trip but thankfully the rain stayed away.

Although the girls were feeling a little queezy Jacob was having a blast.

Unfortunately I was unable to eat any of the oysters as I went straight to the airport. Seerung had great delight in taking this photo to show me that she had eaten them all in one sitting and that they were delicious!

The kids didn't miss me at all it would seem and had great fun playing around the house that evening.

  2. I was going to say, how neat that you married a wife with such a keen eye for oysters, but then remembered you didn’t get to eat any, so it didn’t do you much good this time! Loving the photos and updates.
