The Caravan Park and View.


Wynyard in Tasmania is a quite small town, it's very clean and friendly as many small towns are.
We have taken the caravan there a few times to a caravan park where the lawns are immaculate.  The owner has great pride in his lawns, it's a pleasure to stop there right next to the beach.

Wynyard had an urban population of 5,061and a total greater population of 5,990
The largest employer in the town is the dairy processing plant, owned by the New Zealand company Fonterra.

Have selected a few photos of the view from the Caravan Park.


Looking both ways. 
That's the back of our caravan looking from, looking towards.




 The walkway towards the East and the lower photo the view from the walkway.

Flowers at the park.




A Seagull came to visit looking for something to eat.

    1. It's a long coast, not all sand and beach though, some of it is rather ruggered.

  3. Impressive caravan park and surroundings.
    I don't know the name of that dark purple like flower
    in the photo above that "food snatching machine" - the seagull,
    but I am sure I have seen similar flowers in PNG and I have
    successfully grown them in pots in my bathroom. They seemed
    to have thrived on the hot steam, yet ABOVE they are growing
    in Tasmania which can hardly claim to be tropical - ha ha!
    They certainly are rather identical????
    Cheers

    2. That flower is a Limonium, Statice, there are about 120 flower species.
      Some seagulls are very cheeky.

    3. The reddish brown plant is a succulent. Perhaps you meant that one :)

    4. Yep I meant the reddish brown wax like plant.
      I don't think the purple Limonium Statice would grow
      in a bathroom pot. It would look a bit silly, ha ha eh?
      Cheers

    5. The reddish brown succulent is called Aeonium, I see it has a green centre so it's probably the "short black" variety. One with a pink centre is "black rose". I have some of these in my garden.

    6. Thanks "R" - I think you are from Adelaide (???) so I suggest you trying growing one in your bathroom - they thrive on the hot steam of the shower.
      Cheers

    1. January to end of March. If you wish to see the Yacht's arrive in the Sydney to Hobart race, just before Christmas arrival to Hobart.

  5. Nothing like our Wynyard, in Sydney, masses of people noise and confusion, I like yours much better.

  10. In addition of that wonderful garden, the proximity of the sea is a great incentive.

    1. Always best to park by the sea if possible, and so many caravan parks are next to the sea.

    All the best Jan

  14. I am not sure you bring along bicycles, that would be great I think cycling in that walkway, although maybe it was only meant for walking. Cheers for sharing.

    1. People cycle along that walkway for klms/miles as it's flat.
      We have bicycles an will take them down there next time we go, hopefully.

  15. I have always regretted that I didn't visit Tasmania when I spent time in Australia in 1999. Whether I will ever get a chance to return is doubtful....but who knows?
