Tasmanian Native Hens are good swimmers and fast runners with strong legs therefore some people call them 'turbo chooks'. The chooks can run up to 50km hour are plentiful near marshes, rivers and so on. The Native Hen is protected.

Down by the South Esk River at Evandale near the Launceston Airport. This is the picnic area with trees,m they too have now been cut down.. I have been hunting in my photos and came across photos I took a couple of years ago with the trees gone by the River which I will post next post.

The South Esk River at Evandale, Launceston, Tasmania is only a few km from Launceston plus the airport is near Evandale which is about a 10 - 15 minute drive from home.
The trees are no longer there which is a great shame but then on the other hand I understand why - why, is because the river floods often therefore the flow of water along the river was interrupted. This area is a picnic area with seats, swimming and in general having fun, today not so much so.

The early observation of the Tamar River was in 1798 when explorers Bass and Flinders sailed into the river when circumnavigating Tasmania.
Colonel William Paterson arrived with four ships and 181 people, convicts, soldier, and one free settler and the settlement was established as Outer Cove. Subsequently the main settlement moved to the west arm of the river and then to the river head, some 50km south, named Launceston. Outer Cove was re named to George Town after King George 111.

Continuing Ragged Jack Road drive. The first photo we took the top or right road kept going along thinking we would come onto a highway, but, alas - the bridge was down and it appeared that it had been for sometimes, should have been a sign to say 'no through road', oh well we did enjoy the drive in the bush and plantation. 4th photo is a scene of a tree plantation then some kind of plant that blends into the colours of the grasses and then we came into Upper Blessington a farming area then home.
