The day after visiting Port Arthur, we headed south and had a lovely breakfast on the "Margate Train" the last passenger train to run in Tasmania, now converted to a small tourist stopover.
We came to a beautiful old stone church at Buckland, it was closed for repairs but we had a wander around it and the enclosed graveyard, so many young people just never made it in those early years, so sad.
We continued noth up the coast until we came to St Helens, where we stayed the night, had dinner at the local RSL and met a lovely couple Don and Jill from Launceston who like us were doing a touring trip of Tasmania. We had so much in common and we stayed and chatted for hours.
The east coast of Tasmania is very picturesque and we have enjoyed it, so different from our dry inland home.
will continue the journey soon,
