When we embarked on our Tasmanian Voyage on 27 February 2018, we knew it would be dazzling. Over two months we sailed our catamaran Take It Easy right around this wild island state. With its history, its vast wilderness areas, its dramatic coastline and abundant wildlife, there is so much to see and experience.
At dawn on Sunday 29 April, we crossed the bar at Lakes Entrance after the most sedate of Bass Strait crossings, and put a serene end to our Tasmanian Voyage.
We have swapped the dramatic dolerite columns of the Tasman Peninsula for ‘la vie en rose’ at the Freycinet Peninsula. It is a gentler geology: dome-shaped hills of pink granite slabs, highlighted with orange lichen.
