Day 10
Strahan - Hobart
From Strahan out to Queenstown
Queenstown is a mining town and you can see how Humans can screw up a place its a mining town and the mining operations have stripped the landscape.
It is looking better than the previous 2 time I went through there more plant life is starting to get a foot hold but I do not think that it will ever fully recover.




then over the bridge at lake Burbury



From there we went to Derwent bridge where we met Lofty Bob and his lovely wife Julie and bacon checked out his big rig.

After a quick breakfast it was time to do some exploring so we headed south toward Laughing Jack lagoon 26 Kms from Dewrent bridge we found the turnoff.

The road follows one of the few remaining wooden water pipes






from laughing Jack we continued South toward Tarraleah then out to Butlers Gorge at the bottom of Lake King William,
The road follows the water canals


toward Horbart via Ouse, Ellendale, Salmon Ponds,New Norfolk
