<WH in Australia> Old soul in Launceston!

Try to catch up old times of Australia? Forget commercial Sydney, come to Launceston, Tasmania.

After saying goodbye to New Zealand, my destination is Hobart. I have been to Hobart before, and you might have seen how I like this city, so my only two main agenda are MONA and Wineglass bay. MONA changed new exhibition, The museum of everything, which is really cool. I love their courage and ambition to do whatever it is. I even got beers to take away at Moo Brew.

 

The weather was bad when I was way to Wineglass bay. It was a pity I did not get good photos. However, I finished my puzzle of Hobart. At least, I did not have regret anymore.

 

I headed to Launceston the other day by bus. Cataract Gorge Reserve is close to the town center, which takes only 15 minutes to get there by foot. One thing you definitely should not miss out in Launceston. Spending here the whole day is totally worth it.

 

Then, just follow the local map to walk through heritage trail. I am the one who believe the house is living because people live in there. Take a look here. Some of them are making different purposes, like building of old bank that is previous HQ of Bank of Australasia, which becomes ANZ now. However, like the brewery of J. Boag and Sons was kept as brewery since 1881. Actually, the old house is the big issue in my hometown, Taiwan because of the value of land, so when I saw those heritage, it really means something to me. We just see the money instead how to run a place.

 

Honestly, Launceston is kind of last stop of working holiday in Australia. I met a Scottish who works at hostel, which made my journey perfect. We talked about Australia Laws, such as gay marriage, abortion and suicide here, and the independent issue of Scotland. I just realized that they have their own language. It did surprised me, though. Thank you for letting me have new stories. It is a wonderful ending for me.

By the way, I have left Australia now, but I do have some suggestion if someone wants to visit Australia. Start with Perth, fly into Melbourne to see Great Ocean Road and visit famous cafes’ as much as you can. You probably can’t get any vibes and quality like here anymore. Next, head to Uluru to see magic rocks. With a satisfied heart, going to Sydney or Brisbane to transfer to Whitsunday. Take a small aircraft or overnight sailing boat to see coral sea. Then, back to Sydney to take pictures with Sydney Opera House and ready to go home.

    我也今年五月剛從澳洲回來,最後一站也是塔斯~
    (其實也就去過三站而已XD) 不像妳跑了這麼多地方,
    要看wineglass bay 美景真的需要靠點運氣,如果不想跟觀光客一起share view的話,可以爬當地的Amos山,整個wineglassbay的美景都在你的眼界底下!很漂亮!很喜歡塔斯 :)

    不知道你有沒有去Bicheno走走,那裡也很漂亮,還有會踩你腳的小企鵝

    (其實我是看妳logdown ruby on rails 的教學文慕名而來的,在澳洲時,不知不覺地參加Xdite的課程,然而東塔斯的收訊實在是太差,所以課程進度一直落後,最近在慢慢碰,發現只是個開始而已,是個大坑,學都學不完XD)

      我沒去Bicheno耶!主要是因為沒車,在塔斯很不好移動,加上去的時間也都不長。你三站去了哪裡?

      練習ruby on rails就是要一股作氣(握拳),先把rails101多練幾次,再往深一點的方向繼續學。加油!我也還在苦海中學習~

    對啊,沒有車移動很不方便,尤其在塔斯XD
    我去了布里斯本北方兩百公里的一個小鎮,Biloela待了三個月
    後來去凱恩斯玩一個禮拜,
    第三站就去塔斯了~
    最後在墨爾本待了三天就回台灣了。

    哈哈哈,我怎麼覺得你已經從苦海中脫離出來了,你知道自己的學習模式,和完成一個專案了,還是從一個小苦海出來,又進了個大苦海XD

    嗯嗯,我會加油!最近在想要再過去澳洲,還是就找個工作就找個工作邊玩ruby

    你呢?回台灣還適應嗎?

      學習是沒有盡頭的,所以只能一直學習了T_T
      你有集二簽?可能我對澳洲沒那麼深的情感,之前也有去過德國度假打工一年,除了很熱,我應該什麼不適應的問題。
