Hobart to Devonport and around

Nov 30th till Dec. 14th.

New Norfolk - Ouse - Bronte Park - Queenstown - Zeehan - Tullah - Cradle Mountain - Lower Wilmot - Devonport

bikedays: 5
km: 227

Australia can be very small, many times I met people twice or more. .  six months ago, I met Rogere from England on the Stuart Highway, close to Katherine.

He was on the way from Darwin to Hobart, walking !!!   when I left Hobart, heading northwest, I met Rogere again, on the bikepath !!!

 cycling became more and more "pain in the a..", too much headwind.. from Ouse to Bronte Park I got a lift and from there I took a bus to Queenstown. from Tullah I again took a bus to Cradle Mountain.

20 countries, over 3 years, 28.000km..... great experience :-)

Lake Clare


Ed´s iphone ;-)

Zeehan is very worth to visit !

Krauss History:

abondend town, now a tin mine...

Katherine with her wooden bike, made by her hsuband in Melbourne

Cradle Moutain.

many tourists, especially from China .

if you drive between dusk and dawn exactly at a  speed of 65km/h, a kangaroo will stop you, lift your car and make a full inspection of it !!!  what a great service :-)

awesome mailbox :-)

Peter & Sue Huber, my awesome hosts in Lower Wilmot ! thank you so much !! Peter comes originally from Switzerland

after Lower Wilmot I arrived back in Devonport. I wanted to explore more of Tasmania, but not by pushbike, I was not more motivated to cycle against the wind and I rent a car...  and big pleasure, I met Rob from Munich, member of "Australienfreunde München" (, who was travelling with his buddy Rob on Tasmania. we met each other in Launceston..   awesome reunion :-)

Beaconsfield , another highlight on Tassie

Grindelwald, the Swiss village

bye bye Tassie ! you are so beautiful !!! will be back again :-)

"touchdown" Melbourne .
