We have eventually reached the Wilderness of Tasmania, and it is as beautiful as I had hoped for.
We have also been blessed with some great weather and, best of all, I have seen a kangaroo!!!
It was nice to finally see one that was alive as I have seen dozens dead by the side of the road.
I am really enjoying Fabian's company, a 21 year old German who is mad about hiking, who has spent several months here in Oz, including a few weeks working on a cattle station. I am actually thinking about doing some work on a farm, called wooffing, where you just work for accomodation and food, so it's legal.......I am far too old to get a holiday working visa, sob, sob.
On our first day here we walked up to Crater Lake and then down to the Dove Lake. I am really regretting not having planned this better. If I had more time and a sleeping bag, like the one I sent back to the UK (!), I would have done the Overland Track - 7 days trekking across North Tasmania, which looks awesome from what I've seen.
I kept thinking about Jurassic Park...but then again I've got too much imagination...
Tomorrow we are up very early to climb Cradle Mountain....
Let The Games Begin!!!
