DIY Tasmania - Pt.3


Finally reaching the last chapter. Yay! Gotta say this was definitely the best day and left me with great memories. We had some time to kill in the morning and decided to see a bit of Tasmania's history in Richmond.
  Richmond Bridge
Bridge St, Richmond TAS
View from on top of Richmond bridge. If you cross to the other side you'll find cafes, grocery stores and s fish n chips store.
St John's Catholic Church, which is the oldest church still in use in Australia
and lastly Richmond Gaol ... well the back of it. If you pay you can have yourself locked up for no reason :) Kidding haha. Well not really. For a small fee you can get the whole prisoner experience without committing a crime and getting a criminal record. The reception area was creepy enough as it is so I stuck to taking photos around the place.
Sorell Fruit Farm
174 Pawleena Road Sorell 7172

We tried to hit up one more strawberry farm to see if we could pick for free. No such luck. In fact picking was more expensive than just going to a Woolies. 

After a few more hours of driving we finally hit Hobart! Being a city girl at heart I could not be more thrilled. Seeing cars and the lovely sight of concrete and buildings and bustling people. Okay so it wasn't bustling ... at all but compared to the country I felt like yelling PPEOPPPLEEE thank goodness.
 Princes Wharf No.1
Castray Esplanade Hobart TAS
Unfortunately for me, after being in the city for a small while, and having wifi (almost stayed at the motel the whole day because of that) we headed back out to the countryside.
 Curringa Farm 
 5831 Lyell Hwy, Hamilton TAS
 It was so worth it though! The farm owns 2 sheep dogs and one of them had given birth a little while ago so we got to play with her 5 puppies before they were given to other owners. This one is chocolate. The only one that seemed to like me /sniffle
I can't remember his name but he was having none of my I just want to have a mini photo shoot with you nonsense. 
Just a heads up though, the dogs aren't part of the package. The package we got was $110 per person, which includes lunch, watching the sheep dogs herd the sheep, sheep shearing and a tour of the whole farm. There's beef and lamb of course but I have an allergy to beef and I'm not that into lamb so chicken it is! The lemon water was amazing it was so cleansing but sweet and yummy all at the same time
 The farm tour was basically the farmer telling us about different parts of his farm, different types of animal poo and we spotted some wallabies. It wasn't awe inspiring but the view was pretty amazing, especially at the lake.
 Before we left the farmer told us to continue on in the direction of the waterfall. Since I'd never seen one in real life I was like Let's Goooo! We crossed a bridge on the way, right in the middle of the most picturesque lake. It almost looked like the salt lake, with the reflection an all, it was beautiful. You have to be careful though because it's just a road and there's really no where to stop. Luckily for us it was a quiet day and there was only 1 car using the bridge with us.
 Unfortunately we didn't have time for the waterfall, so close but so far. Maybe next time. But on that note I'm so glad we found this lake to finish on a high note.
