Hi Lex, 'Tis nice to be able to sit out on my deck and see something like this sail past. When you come down we'll have a beer there and let your camera loose for a while too. cheers mate GT

Hi Marion. The fires burnt such a small part of Tassie that you'd blink and miss it to be honest. The press wrote it up as if Tassie was blackened everywhere. I just came back from Bicheno that my Mum asked why I would be going there, as its all gone! (Her interpretation) Not a single house in Bicheno was burnt and you'd be hard pressed to see any of the blackened areas from the highways. As for Dunalley its a town you'd drive thru on the way to Port Arthur. You probably wouldn't have stopped there regardless, but the pub is still there and a couple of small cafes that would appreciate any business they could get no doubt. As for being green, Tassie is yellow at the moment, as it is every summer. To see it green you'd need to be here in spring or late autumn I reckon. cheers and hi from Hobart - Gary

Hi GaryFrom the group A1-Unique Australia *. My last visit to Tassie was 1965. Wonder haw it looks like at my next visit. Like the photo and your view L*. Regads Ebi

G'day Ebi. 1965 'tis a while ago. Things might have changed a little, then again many things remain unchanged, one of them being Hobart is still a big country town in comparison to Melbourne/Sydney etc. which is great. Better get down here and bring your camera with you. You'll need it! cheers Gary

Hi Gary! I certainly agree with you in regards to Hobart...it really is a most agreeable town and that comes from someone who'd prefer to be miles from anywhere!!
