Julius River Swallet

This post is a bit of a re-visit of an older post (Julius River Caves) not because we are running out of places to look at but because the last few times we have been here we have completely missed all the good bits. This would have to be one of the most spectacular river... Continue Reading →

Lord Brassey Mine Trip

It is hard to believe but Lord Brassey Mine is a world-famous mineral locality.  This former nickel mine is the type locality for heazlewoodite and hellyerite, and the source of many rare minerals, including awaruite, dypingite, retgersite, reevesite, theophrastite and several new, unnamed minerals.  I have absolutely no idea what any of that is but...

Meander Falls

This weekend gone turned out to be a very busy weekend with a 4WD trip on Saturday  (and possibly expensive one as I think I have done a front main engine seal on the cruiser) and then on Sunday got invited to do a walk with the Tassie Tiger Trekkers to Meander Falls.  So we where...

Chester Mine – Open Cut

Well they say bad things happen in three's and today they did..... Broke the Drone, Wheel nearly fell off the Cruiser and Trailer Pin worked its way out  and lost the trailer with the 'Slug' on it (Fastest it has ever moved).  But that still wasn't enough to wreck the great day out. After a couple... Continue Reading →

Lake Spicer Track

Yet again Tassie doesn't disappoint this place was spectacular. Until Friday I hadn't even heard of this place and was planning a relatively quite weekend as Jacinta was working and I thought I better catch up on a few Jobs but late on Friday night I receive a text message asking whether I was keen to...

Back to Waratah… Again

This place is just a goldmine for exploring it is unbelievable the things there are to look at in such a small area and I reckon we are still only scratching the surface.  As good as it is it is also bloody cold and generally wet and I'm not to sure why I insist on... Continue Reading →
