Mt William National Park

Saturday, July 13, 2013

Headed into the North East of Tasmania and the Mt William National Park.  First stop was the Low Head Lighthouse.  It was a cold and foggy morning and it was good to see the light house operating.  Although the beam was only visible for about 200 meters, so we suspect the light house was operating for the tourists.  We found nice lattes at the Cottage Bakery in Scottsdale.  At Legerwood* we visited an interesting memorial to World War I victims made out of carved tree stumps.  We spend a few hours in the Mt William National Park enjoying the scenery and wildlife.  We saw our first wild wombat and some type of eagle.

* To me (Caroline) the name ‘Legerwood’ seems interesting: the Dutch word for ‘army’ is ‘leger’; the meaning of wood is obvious of course. But think of it: Armywood… coincidence?

Wombat. Good to see one alive and not as roadkill on the side of the road.
Some type of eagle.
