Spirit of Tasmania

Now home after 4 months being away and this time I'm telling a little information about the ship or ferry that takes us to mainland Australia and returns to Tasmania..
There are two ships and they usually cross in the night.

The Spirit of Tasmania 1 and 11 are the ships that ferry passengers, freight and vehicles across Bass Strait.  Bass Strait is between the north of the Island of Tasmania, Australia and the State of Victoria of which Melbourne is it's capital.
The channel's width is approximately 300 km (190 mi) and it's depth is 60-70m (200 ft) 500km (310 mi) long.
The time from Devonport in Tasmania to Melbourne in Victoria is 9 to 11 hours.
We sailed at 19.30 arrived in Melbourne at 06.30.

Photos taken from inside our vehicle boarding the ship.
