Word of the day - M

M for marvellous Melbourne.

Convict brick trail

One of the things that really brings history alive in Tasmania is the convict brick trail in Campbell town.  This documents all convicts that were deported from England to Tasmania, along with some that never made it.  Each convict has a brick in the main street of the town with their name what they did to get deported and their sentence. The punishments were very harsh.  I deliberately removed the focus from the bricks in the first image as the monument is not about any one person

The journey

One of the best things about our trip to Tasmania was the journey that we took to get there.  Instead of hopping on a plane and hiring a car at the other end we put our car on the Spirit of Tasmania and had a leisurely trip across Bass strait.

On this day - 30th of December

In 2017 we were in Tasmania for my sisters wedding on new years eve.  We were proper little tourists.  This is 'The Nut' in Stanley an excellent place to photograph and visit.
