Launceston to Hobart via the Highland Lakes

image002 We decided to take a different route back to Hobart from Launceston and went via the Highland Lakes.  We didn’t realise however that we would be going up such a huge mountain to get to the lakes.  It was a nice drive with lots of hairpin bends image001and the lakes were very isolated.  There were also hardly any other vehicles on the road.

I’ve never seen a boat ramp as wide as the one at the Great Lake and it was definitely quite a barren area.image004

Back in Hobart we checked  into the lovely Henry Jones Art Hotel in Sullivan Cove and then had an excellent lunch at Muirs Upper Deck a short walk away, that would be the classiest lunch we had in Tasmania.  Excellent image003food, excellent  service, and a magnificent setting.
