Ahoy Cape Hauy

James & I at Cape Hauy

We enjoyed a low-key long weekend in Hobart and headed to Fortescue Bay for a day walk to Cape Hauy yesterday.  This walk is part of the 60 Great Short Walks of Tasmania and I am hoping to tick a few off this year with the family:

60 Great Short Walks

The Cape Hauy Track leads from Fortescue Bay, just near the boat ramp. The walk passes through a variety of heath and woodland before coming to the magnificent views of steep cliffs and rock formations.

The spectacular dolerite columns and cliffs at Cape Hauy are popular areas for climbing and abseiling. Sea stacks, the “Candlestick” and “Totem Pole” at Cape Hauy are used by climbers and are not, you may be pleased to know, a part of this short walk!

I carried James in the Ergobaby whilst Poppy walked the majority of the way on her own.  She would bound from rock to rock and then complain her legs were tired, where we would distract her with a sighting of a skink or a banksia, and she would be on her way again.  Nick only carried her in the pack for a few steep steps.

We didn’t quite make it out to the Cape, but did get a glimpse of the mighty cliffs.  I loved being in the bush with James pointing up to the sounds of the birds and Poppy remembering the botanical name of Cutting Grass!

On Sunday Nick and Poppy went out on the water whilst James and I met Cath at the Farm Gate Market for a wander and a cuppa.  We finished off the day with fish & chips where James proceeded to suck on lemons … go figure?  Xx

    I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours lately, yet I by no means found any attention-grabbing
    article like yours. It is lovely price enough for me.

    In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you probably
    did, the web will likely be much more useful than ever before.
