'Left of the Field' Caravan Park, Tasmania

Left of the Field Caravan Park is where we stayed next after New Norfolk.  The park is situated in a bush setting with large caravan sites with power, water, camp kitchen, shower, toilets and washing machine facilities.  We have our kitchen, washing machine, shower and so on in our caravan.

Here we had no TV, but we watched the news if we thought to and Netflix on our phones.
 
We stayed a few days and the old boot ladder was something different to see on the way to the office.
 

 
The old horse box does as a laundry, was rather amused to see this.
 

 
The above shows an empty site with a fire-pit in the middle there, you buy the wood at a small fee.
Below is on the way to the garbage disposal area and you can see a swing, the old type with ropes hanging from a tree.  I remember when much younger swinging on one of those.

 
The map just near the left is Mount Field National Park , to the right of that near the yellow road is 'Left of the Field' Caravan Park in Tasmania.  The Capital city Hobart is on on the bottom right of the map.

    1. Very different there. This Saturday night there is a concert there, social distancing and you have to book of course. There won't be a crowd, just a few people.

  3. I like the old boots now serving in their retirement as plant pots. Oh, the tales they could likely tell!

    1. It was good to stay there, but it's isolated to a degree but good if you want to just relax do a strip or two to Lake Pedder, Gordon Dam or just to Mount Field NP.

    1. It can be a benefit of course but many people like to see the news on TV. Many people take DVD's with them on their trips, we don't necessarily mostly because we don't need them.
      Some people like to shut themselves away from the worlds happenings when travelling, that's ok too. Whatever one needs.

  8. That caravan park is the sort that we like, not too organised yet has everything you want and the laundry "room" is great too.

    1. Nothing is organized and it's a roomy place with no neighbours really close, you can join into things if you wish or just let them pass you by.

    1. It's often good to have a rest from the internet as it's very much part of most our days now.
      Lots of old boots and many tales to tell.
      Thanks.

  11. Your header shot quote and picture is great, and so true. As for your post, what a neat place to stay Margaret. I love the old stepladder and the horse box used for the laundry room. So pretty around there. Once again thank you for the map as I am always very interested in looking at them. Have a great week :)

    1. Thanks re header Denise. I took a photos of the magnolia from the garden yesterday and made the graphic for a change. I make wallpapers for myself for my desktop, laptop and phone..sometimes I don't like what I make :)
      Always good to include a map in my book as it must help people who are not familiar with Tasmania.
