We moved onto Launceston, found a motel and booked in for a few days.
there was a wonderful auto and bike museum that we also looked through,
We had a lovely lunch at a pub, wandered through the park which boasts a wonderful conservatory
After Penny Royal we met up with a young friend who has relocated to Launceston for work and had lunch with her.
The next day we decided to have a walk around Cataract Gorge. e headed there around 8 am while it was still cool.
We then went into town and looked at St Johns Church, the church my great,great,great ,great grandparents were married in.
After the cruise we decided to take a drive to Beaconsfield to go to the mining museum. ten years ago men were trapped in the mine for 14 days , 1 man died and 2 survived. After the tragedy the mine only operated for a few years before closing down.
We also visited Beaconsfield cemetery as my grandmother was born in Beaconsfied and her grandparents are buried at the cemetery.
We crossed the Tamar river over the Batman Bridge
That is about the end of the Launceston area section of our trip. I hope it hasn't bored you to tears .
We have loved all the things we have done and are having a wonderful time.
Until we meet a little further down the track,
Take care everyone,
