A Quick Dip at Tomahawk



Our time in the northeast of Tassie was swamped with hot weather, and our visit to Tomahawk necessitated one thing: a swim!

To find the place, simply travel northeast of Launceston, or, if you've been following our tracks, east of Waterhouse Conservation Park.

The town itself is small and quiet. A great spot to kick back and camp with amenities, corner store, and pretty beaches. A top stop for grey nomads to park up for a while.

We only stopped in briefly, but also met a bluetongue on the side of the road. I'm a bit of a sucker for lizards, always rousing on them for lounging around where a car might wipe them out. It was also the first bluey I had seen in Tassie. Going by his thin frame, I don't think he was long out of hibernation!

As you can see in from the photos below, Mr. Bluey quickly scampered away after a stern talking to!
