Triabunna, Tasmania.

Triabunna on the East Coast of Tasmania is a fishing village and it's also where you catch the ferry to Maria Island which has much to offer.  Have never been there as a fair bit of walking is to be done and my husband can't walk that far on some of the uneven ground.

Triabunna is the second largest town on the east coast and is 84 klm north of the State Capital Hobart.
The name of the town is Aboriginal for the Tasmania Native Hen.

It's certainly a busy town. There were two free parks with a  couple of spaces left but we chose the caravan park.


The lights - well they were on a fishing boat used at night time.


The tide was right out so it doesn't look so pretty and you can see the ferry coming up the bay/river.

  2. I think I want to visit Australia soon. For that to happen I should not think about the 28 hour flight I would have to endure. :))

  5. I think the lights on the boat are used for catching flounder. There must be a good channel in the water for the ferry. It looks so shallow.

    1. That channel looks very shallow but it's certainly rather deep where the ferry is. I expect many a ship long ago had trouble.

    1. The ferry is kept busy so I'm told with tourist going across to Maria Island which has much to offer.
      There are school trips to the island, walking trips, nature trips and so on...the island was used for convicts way back.

  8. I too think the water does not look deep enough for the ferry.

    1. It doesn't look deep enough when the tide is out - but of course it is deep when you know.

  9. The skipper of the ferry must be very adept at his job...and very alert during low tides...to keep that boat in the deeper water of what appears to be a channel.

    Beautiful lights on the boat! Waiting to see the brightness of the light at night!

    1. I doubt if the light would come on in shore, would have to venture out to sea to look at them on..

  11. That's a pretty little ferry. Even with the tide out the area looks nice to me. I love the night lights on that boat.

    1. It’s rather a nice spot, first glance it doesn’t look much but after driving around you get to know the place a little better and it’s sense of pull to you.

  14. It is wonderful to know that this town has an aboriginal name - TRIABUNNA.
    Now Margaret you will have to photograph a Tasmanian native hen for your viewers to see and hopefully remember the name of this delightful fishing village.
    That ferry looks ULTRA modern.......should also move fast, I suspect, in Open water.
    Very good comprehensive report on Triabunna.
