Southport, Tasmania

Continuing to drive further south from Huonville we came across Southport which is below Dover here in Tasmania.

Southport these days is more a holiday village and fishing area for the locals of which there are about 135 people.  Many holiday homes are located along the foreshore and certainly not over crowded.
Further south is Cockle Creek which is as far as one can go in a vehicle in Tasmania, of course there are walking tracks to the end of the Island.
Once shore based whaling took place at Southport.

Photos are of Southport as we drove along the road taken from various places, it was trying to rain but it didn't.

  2. Mucha tranquilidad en ese lugar y aunque las nubes son muchas no terminó por llover, cosa que es de agradecer si se quiere dar un paseo.

  4. Certainly more tranquil than Southport on the Gold Coast and no doubt 100% safer!
