Geeveston, Tasmania

After Southport we headed north to a small town called Geeveston which was a timber town way back.  Nearby is the Tahune Airwalk which is promoted as 'the longest tall tree walk in the world'.  Unfortunately this year there was a massive fire down Geeveston way with the Tahune Airwalk being damaged, it will re open later.

Called into Geeveston and had lunch at a Cafe in the Main Street.
These two statures are but a few scattered around the town.






Inside the cafe below is this collection of teapots.
The Cafe has a look of the old charm.


Across the road is this building with the chemist to the right plus the statue of the Chemist above.




A couple of photos of Southport at a lookout area and in the distance you can see Bruny Island one of Tasmania's Islands which is very popular with tourist.
Below a closeup but didn't used my tripod and should have.

  1. Bill could do with a coat of marine varnish. Tahune Airwalk was our first air walk. It was really good. Such a pity it was damaged, but good that it is being repaired.

  2. It looks like a charming town (and a beautiful area). I am glad that the Airwalk is being repaired.

    1. Very pretty area down that way. The dollars that are being lost because of the past fires much be thousands or millions of dollars - but thankfully no houses were burnt down or people lost their lives.

    1. Thank you. Country towns are often very interesting and have something different to offer.

    1. Lovely there David, we might go there next year for a visit as there is a new ferry being built apparently, so hope it will be finished.

    1. They are different, it's a pity I could get more photos of the different ones placed around the town. Cars were in the way.

  9. Quite a character was the Tassie "Bill".
    Great to see his life commemorated with the plaque and statue.

    I hope this big freeze isn't upsetting your or "Shank's"
    health? Far too cold for me to even think about a Tassie visit.........Brrrrrrrr!
    Great report and photos as usual.

    1. Thanks Colin.
      Cold snap, not too bad for us certainly haven't had to have a coat on (don't own one), Shanks is still in his shorts..lol.
      Certainly he was a character, and it's good to read about him as well.

    1. It's good they are repairing the airwalk as it's really lovely there walking on top of the trees, hopefully most of them are still there.
