Tasmania (Day 2) : From Montezuma Falls to Strahan to Henty Dunes

I cannot forget my travel in Tasmania because it was one of my travel that I felt how its freezing cold the winter season is in Australia. I experienced winter in Melbourne, but I seldom stayed outside for too long and since I stayed in apartment-hotel, I can control the temperature in my room. It was different when I was in Tasmania. The island is located at the southernmost which geographically nearer in Antarctica or south pole than in Melbourne. We stayed in the dormitory house where the heater is available at the living room/kitchen, therefore we can feel in our bed rooms the cold breeze coming from the outside that  sneaks to the walls and open space of the house. At first I thought that I will never be able to pull it through but in the end I survived the winter in the island.

We woke-up early in the morning. Everyone immediately prepared for the second day adventure. While I was wondering what to see and what we will do for that day, I can still feel the excitement within myself as I know we are going to places to explore and discover something. From the accommodation in Tullah, we drove towards Montezuma Falls not really far from where we stayed during the first night. Along the road, I saw a beautiful lake and I was glad that Greg our guide, did stopped near Murchison Bridge so we had a chance to see up-close and appreciate Lake Rosebery which just around the corner. Since it was early in the morning, the mist in the lake and the surrounding areas  was visible, a uniquely captivating scenery.

After enjoying the lake and taking some photos, we went back to the van to continue our second day adventure. The first part of the itinerary was Montezuma Falls, the highest Falls in Tasmania. From the parking, we walked in the rain-forest, taking the old tramway track and even had a chance to cross a very narrow suspension bridge not far from the falls which gave us a shaky feeling while enjoying the great view of the falls. Along the hike, we saw some mining holes as the area is a historical place of mining industry in the island during its glory days.

Our lunch stop happened in  a small town called Strahan. The place has been historic because it became access port both for Sarah Island (where penal punishment for convicts were sent) and for mining settlement areas in the island. We spent time to roam the area in a bit. While wandering, the group found pathways to one of the accommodations in the town that offers a great overlooking view of Long Bay. While I was looking on information about the town, I just discovered that the town is called as one of the Loneliest Places On Earth and the Most Isolated Outpost in Australia with beautiful harbour at end of the world.

The group’s last stop before going back to the same accommodation we had during first night in the tour was Henty Sand Dunes which not really far from Strahan. It is a vast sand dunes to be found in the island and not far from the coast. The group had a playful funny activities in the dunes and the inner childishness of the group outburst. In the same sand dunes, the group did the tour company’s jump signature.

For our last night together in the group, I cannot forget the experience I had with them. The group had a party after dinner, because I don’t drink and not a party person, I went inside the dormitory bed room while most of them stayed in the living room. I heard the group just talking at first, then they played some music and started dancing, I heard the laughter and jokes outside. Inside the room I was in, I felt quite shy and timid. I stayed in the room for at least half an hour and while I was contemplating if I will join the group outside, one of them went inside and talked to me in a bit, then I decided to join them since it was the last night of the group together. Even though I really don’t know how to dance, I just move with the music and had fun and laugh with group. We had been like that in hours until we get tired and we decided to end it with happy mood.
