Today their private tour took them to Cradle Mountain in the North West of Tasmania and although it was a little overcast they still got to see the Cradle and enjoyed a few short walks.. As it was one of the Guests birthday, we decided a few surprises were needed....I am sure she will be spoilt more again tonight. They were also very lucky as we saw a few wombats today along with a Mum & Bubs Pademelon. A great day. Tomorrow it's the East Coast of Tasmania.

Today I took a lovely couple from California on tour off a Cruise Ship in Burnie and their main destination was the Tarkinewildernesslodge where they were meeting Maree for a short Guided tour. Thanks Maree for making their day very special by encouraging a few of your rehabilitated wallaby and pademelon friends to come out and say Hi....They thoroughly enjoyed their morning with you and loved the Lodge. This is a special part of Tasmania at the edge of theTarkine and a must see or stay for all. We made our way back to Burnie with a few short stops before they left later that afternoon.Happy sailing and maybe one day you will be back to enjoy that Lodge! This is a great Cruise Ship Shore tour from Burnie.

Tonight I said bye to my lovely guests who have been on a 4 day tour with me, visiting from Brisbane in Qld and Perth in WA.

The weather was very good to them and they thoroughly enjoyed their half day experience on the Wilderness Railway on the South West of Tasmania - a must visit when over this way and of course historic Stanley on the North West of Tasmania. They thoroughly enjoyed their time up here and I wish you all the best for your future travels ...it's been a pleasure!....

Today I had my first Cruise ship day tour from Hobart with a lovely group of guests visiting off the MS Noordam from Virginia in America and the weather turned it on for them. They loved their tour out to MT Field NP and as per usual a great lunch at the The Possum Shed Cafe before spending the rest of the day Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary with a few short stops along the way. I hope that sailing is better than you anticipate...weather wise!!
