Another busy day.
We left our site near Launceston and journeyed on towards the western side of Tasmania.
We called at Beauty Point to see the Echidnas and Platypus - not actually in the wild but probably our only chance to actually see the creatures and learn about them. They are monotremes - lay eggs but suckle their young so actually mammals; fascinating.
We paused at Sheffield which is a well known town for interesting murals (on the tour bus route) but is a bit like a 'western town' and I half expected the tumbleweed to be blowing along the street. I found a decorated skate park in one corner and, as luck would have it, a young lad was having fun on his scooter and happy for me to photograph his antics.
Now we are on a site in the mountains parked by a creek where there is a chance of seeing a platypus actually in the wild (not this evening - but maybe in the morning).
Still so much of this amazing Australian state to explore!
