THE NECK
Eaglehawk Neck, Tasmania, Australia

Eaglehawk Neck is a small town and natural gateway to the many attractions of the Tasman Peninsula, including the Port Arthur Historic Site.

The thin strip of land known as the Neck connects the Tasman Peninsula to the Forestier Peninsula. It's about 400 metres long and less than 30 metres wide at one point. This narrow entrance to the Tasman Peninsula was once guarded by the dog line, a line of dogs chained together to prevent convicts from escaping the notorious prison settlement at nearby Port Arthur. Many tried to escape, some succeeded and there's now a sculpture to mark this once brutal barricade.

There are shipwreck sites here too, but there's much more to this place than its dark and dangerous past. The Neck is also a natural geological wonder with striking rock formations like the Tessellated Pavement, and nearby Tasman's Arch, Blowhole and Devil's Kitchen. [discovertasmania.com.au] (1696)

CALM WATERS
Inverloch, Victoria, Australia

'Inverloch is a seaside town located in Victoria, Australia. It is located 143 kilometres (89 mi) south east of Melbourne at the mouth of Anderson Inlet, in the Bass Coast Shire. Known originally for the calm waters of Anderson Inlet, it is now also known for the discovery of Australia's first dinosaur bone and at the 2011 census it had a population of 4,960.

Inverloch is a popular tourist destination, particularly for swimming, kitesurfing and windsurfing at the calm waters of Anderson Inlet. Fishing and surfing are also popular.

The town was first named Andersons Inlet after Samuel Anderson, the first European to settle here. It was later renamed Inverloch after Loch Inver (Lake Entrance) in Scotland.' [Wikipedia] (1697)

A SHELTER ON THE JOURNEY
St Kilda, Victoria, Australia

Part way out to the end of the long St Kilda Pier there are these small green and gold shelters.  I presume the builders of the pier considered that the long walk in a city that is renowned for having four seasons in one day,  might need to have a shelter on the journey to the end and back.   (1589)

WAITING FOR A BITE
St Helens, Tasmania, Australia

'St Helens is the largest town on the north-east coast of Tasmania, Australia, on Georges Bay. It is known as the game fishing capital of Tasmania and is also renowned for its oysters (as are some other areas of Tasmania). It is located on the Tasman Highway, about 160 km east of Tasmania's second largest city, Launceston.


St Helens was first used as a whaling base in the early 19th century. When tin was discovered in the surrounding area in the 1870s, St Helens became the shipping port for the mines. This was the first time a coach service had been introduced to the town; previous access had only been by sea. The town was named after St Helens, Isle of Wight. Today the town is a popular resort for fishing, swimming and other aquatic activities. Its economy is based largely on tourism, fishing and timber.' [Wikipedia]   (1505)

TEMPTING TO ME
Hobart, Tasmania, Australia

What was I thinking? The blazing midday sun and I had my camera in hand as I walked alongside Victoria Dock in Tasmania's capital, Hobart.  Any scene where there are boats moored on calm water is tempting to me, but put the pretty Hobart skyline with mountains in the background and I just had to capture this image.  Perhaps the next time I visit it will be at sunset so there is a better light to take the photo in.   (1502)

CATARACT GORGE
Launceston, Tasmania, Australia

'The Cataract Gorge is a river gorge in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia, approximately 1.5km from the city centre. It is one of the region's premier tourist attractions. It is found at the lower section of the South Esk River.


A pathway, known as the King’s Bridge-Cataract Walk, and originally built by volunteers in the 1890s, runs along the north bank of the Cataract Gorge, and is a popular tourist destination. The original toll house at which pedestrians had to pay to enter the walk can still be seen near King's Bridge on the northern edge of the gorge.


A chairlift was build across the Gorge in 1972 and is the longest single-span chairlift in the world, with the longest span being 308 m (1,010 ft).


At the lower end of the gorge, the South Esk spills into the Tamar River going under King's Bridge and another more modern bridge on the way.' [Wikipedia]   (1503)
