Life in Tasmania's Huon Valley, by a blow-in from the mainland

I like Launceston more each time I visit. I don't recall being too impressed with the town itself when I visited as a tourist some years ago. But the more I wander its streets filled with lovely old buildings and sample its food the more I like it.

This week I flew into Launceston from Melbourne. The fields surrounding the airport were under a lot of water. I had heard about flooding in some areas of the town following torrential rain this week. Early on Friday morning I walked up Cataract Gorge and the volume of water roaring down it was incredible. It was too dark for a good photo, but you'll get the idea.
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.
