After our few nights and days in Bendigo we headed to the Port of Melbourne to catch the ferry, The Spirit of Tasmania home to the Island of Tasmania. The trip takes 1 hour 40 minutes approximately from Bendigo to the Port of Melbourne.
We had a good run through the traffic and over the Westgate Bridge arriving in ample time to get inline to go onboard when the time came.
The first photo is of Bass Strait. The second one being the building of Station Pier, both photos taken a few years back so therefore not this trip.
So this is the end of our holiday in 2019. I presume I will follow with more photos of our Tasmanian trips before Covid-19.
Above, The Spirit of Tasmania, the cabin we had which has an ensuite and even though there are two extra beds the cabin is single occupation only.
Above is the Quarantine Station at Devonport, Tasmania where every vehicle under and through. Caravans are checked by the men inside and out, boots and bonnets of vehicles also.
What are they looking for?
Guns, drugs, food, flowers, soil and so on, things that are not permitted into Tasmania.
The link to bio security Tasmania
which is a good site to visit and to know exactly what is permitted and what is not permitted.
We had breakfast at Christmas Hills Raspberry Farm near Elizabeth Town and we passed this ground tank (watering hole or dam) along the way. Below photo and above is a small pond at Christmas Hills Raspberry Farm. A link to the menu is here
