The next leg of this Summer´s Tasmania tour initially leads us from Strahan down to Macquarie Heads.

The main entrance into Macquarie harbour was named "Hells Gates" in the convict time, as one of the first British penal stations in Australia was located on Sarah Island in this inlet.

We escape and turn back north again over Strahan city, ...

A good base for our next hike would be Cradle Mountain Village (just right of the runway), with a number of accomodation options...

More marvelous shots and indeed your Tassie tour is both informative and knowledgeable.  Orbx/FTX scenery (with a touch of OZx:wub:), and a well painted small 'plane, always make this lovely island a pleasant virtual habitat.

Another great tour Gerold, sounds like you know your way around Tasmania.

Thank you John. As we can´t travel in real, I just read another travel guide about the island...

Thanks a lot, TT. The Orbx / OZx combination would deserve even a smaller plane and a slower flight with stops at the most remote bush strips. But I try to cut my tours in car-driveable legs, if possible...
