Life in Tasmania's Huon Valley, by a blow-in from the mainland
Sunday, January 2, 2011
It's hard to drive anywhere in the Huon Valley at the moment without getting stuck behind a caravan or mammoth Winnebago. But it is nice to see the camping ground on the river in Franklin being enjoyed by travellers from around Australia. Empty for most of winter, there is now a collection of vehicles and sometimes even a tent or two there every day now. Summer holidays are here. The main downside to the increase in traffic: a corresponding increase in roadkill. The roadside is littered with poor wallabies and possums.
Escaped Sydney in 2010 for a piece of paradise in Tasmania's Huon Valley. I'm a keen walker, remote worker, incompetent gardener, Bernese Mountain Dog owner, fan of almost anything German (food, language, cars, beer), amateur linguist, chook fancier, childfree.
