The 3 generation Travelling Troupe In Tasmania PT 2

Day 2

An early rise and down to the Strachan Steam Railway station to cath a coache to Queenstown

After a nice hot coffee in the lounge at the Queenstown station we boarded another coach to the first stop ...

Activity One - Gold panning at Lynchford Station where the twins i might add struck GOLD both of them and that set the tone for the day ..

Activity Two - A very pleasant glass of wine and amazing box lunch was awaiting us at Rinadeena and some exploration of some undeground mines and a walk through the rainforest .

Activity Three - Meandering through the hills we came to Dubil Barril a brisk walk found looking at some most amazing fungai and an enormous wooden Bridge ... Mum was taking too many photos and held up the train ..

Once back on the train we took a lovely scenic tour over rivers and gorges through valleys and admired the changes in the natural vegetation ..

Activity Four - Lower Landing was out next stop and an assortment of Tasmanian Honey out for out tasting pleasure this station was nestled in amongs Huon Pines .

The rack and pinion rail system was a most ingenious invention which allowed the trains to climb the very steep ascents fully loaded ..

Now back at Strachan and the sun was setting so we retired to out lovely hotel to await the adventure of tomorrow ..

Thanks Marie
