Schouten Island, Tasmania Australia

The holiday over in 2017 so what will I blog about now! 
Often we travel to various places in Tasmania, sometimes in the caravan other times in the car for the day - so surly I would have photos to share of this magic Island called Tasmania, Australia my home Island.

Great Oyster Bay at Swansea on the East Coast of Tasmania.

That island is Schouten Island, the highest point Mt. Story is 400m high (1,300 ft).
In 1642 whilst surveying the area Abel Tasman (Dutch explorer) named it Schouten Island after Joost Schouten, a member of the Council of the Dutch East India Company.

Plenty of time as we arrived in the Melbourne area passing the Footscray Hockey Centre and the highway to Station Pier, Port Melbourne.

Bass Strait.

Ready and waiting to drive along the pier to board the Spirit of Tasmania to home the next morning.
