Hobart and a brewery

226.
Cityhall.


227.
In downtown Hobart.


228.
Postoffice Hobart. Looks grander then cityhall imo.


229.
Hilly Hobart.


230.
I think its good living here!


231.
We walk out of the city center because we are on our wat towards the Cascade brewery (the oldest still working brewery of Australia)


232.
In the distance we can see the main building.


233.
First time for a nice lunch, then a tour trough the brewery and then offcourse some tasting of beers!


234.
In the brewery.


235.
4x a cider, 6 times their own beer and 2x a beer of Goose Island (Chicago) which they brew here under license.


236.
Back to the hotel.


237.
Swimming pool in the hotel we stayed.


I stayed in the city for the market and the brewery. Others of the group went on a excursion to other parts of the island/coast and also animals watching (in captivity)

238.
It looks like a cute devil.....


239.
But you don't wanna have a fight with it bring a piece of meat and they go crazy!


240.
View from Mount Wellington (1271m) with a part of Hobart down below.


Its sadly time to leave this great island but we gonna take a plane again to Melbourne!! Also very great, but you will see that from the parts to come...

A very nice set, Patrick!
The "Beutelteufel" is one of my favourite animals: cute and wild.
Great snapshot!

Flight to Melbourne

On our way toMelbourne

Like said we are going on our second inland flight of this trip to get to the city of Melbourne.

241.
We are just in the sky leaving Hobart airport.


242.
Landscape Tasmania


243.

244.
We can see towards Freycinet national park.


245.
'Mainland' Australia is back in sight.


246.


247.
Suburbs Melbourne.


I had a seat at the wrong side of the plain for views of the city skyline and we were on our way to land at the airport......although just before touchdown the engines reved up hard and we gain height again... a landing aborted so lets try again...

248.
Looking down to the airport.


249.
But thanks to this situation now I did have some very nice views towards the city skyline!


250.
Melbourne.


251.
View at the city.
