For the second half of our tour around Tasmania, we went to Freycinet National Park, which was absolutely gorgeous. Had a great hike up to view Wineglass Bay, and then visited other bays and areas of the park. We also stayed not to far away at Windsong B&B
. We then spent a day on the tiny Maria Island enjoying being away from people and cars. For the last day, we explored the Royal Tasmania Botanical Garden in Hobart.

The first half of our Tasmania visit. The first part is all at Cradle Mountain where we explored many trails. This was the only truly cold day of our trip, but we still saw many beautiful places on our hikes, and wombats, echidnas and wallabies in the wild. There's also pictures here from the beautiful Cataract Gorge in Launceston.

We started out the next part of our trip in Werribee, where friends live, and they took us to the Werribee Open Range Zoo, run by the Melbourne Zoo. There you can ride in a bus around the safari area, seeing plenty of mainly African animals along the way. You can also walk around other areas and explore other animals. They also took us to other sites in Werribee. The next day we wandered around the entire Melbourne Zoo, which is quite an amazing place.

After Wilsons Promontory, we visited Healesville Sanctuary
, one of the Zoos
Victoria sites. At Healesville, all the animals are Australian. The day was
overcast and lightly rainy, but not enough to interfere with our enjoyment of
They had displays of wombats and Tasmanian devils, but the animals were not
visible when we went by. They also had a platypus on display, but the lighting
was too dim to be able to get a photograph. Too bad, as we never got a
platypus photo on the whole trip, though we did see them in zoos twice.
