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.

Richmond Churches, Tasmania.

On Easter Saturday at Richmond, Tasmania we decided to visit two Churches.
First is St. John's Catholic Church which was built in 1836 and is regarded as being the oldest Catholic Church in Australia.
There is a school attached to the Church both being near the Richmond Bridge.

The photo directly below is of the doorway to the Richmond Goal which I covered extensively in 4 posts in June 2016.














St. Luke's Anglican Church below which was built in 1834 so being older than the Catholic Church in Richmond.








These boxes are attached to the pillars being very visible on the way out the Church.
