Huonville River, Tasmania

The Huon River below is a perennial river which means it is a stream or river (channel) that has continuous flow in parts of it's stream bed all year round during years of normal rainfall.
The river is 174 km (108 mile) long.

We set off for a drive around the Huon area, the river is on the edge of Huonville, it was a lovely day and people in the boat were doing a cruise up the river.

At Huonville Caravan Park.

We heard about the 'train' at Margate so a detour was in order to visit this train that was advertised well.  Such a disappointment, only a few of the carriages were open for business, some were empty so certainly wasn't worth the detour to visit.
A good idea though, old carriages with business's inside..

Arrived at Huonville before lunch as we didn't have that far to travel. Went to the caravan park in Huonville which was just ever so beautiful.  Never have we seen such green, green grass.
The owners made us welcome, had a joke or two then set off to our caravan site.

Photos are of the caravan park and Mountain River that flows through the park.





Son setting up this caravan, ours to the right.
Each night we had a fire, and we often ate in the dark by the fire, depends on what we were having.








There is a Zoo not far from the park.  At the park there is a mini farm along with some Tasmanian Devils in an approved enclosure and all are fed at 4pm daily.
