Koalas and Kangaroos and Devils, Oh My!

Koalas and Kangaroos and Devils, Oh My!

Easter break gave me my first real opportunity to travel and see what Australia has to offer beyond Melbourne and Victoria.

I never in my life thought I would get to see Tasmania, but I did and it was beyond beautiful. I’ve been lucky enough to have met friends here at school that have the same travel intentions and desire to explore the world as I do.

We spent the first days of break on Hobart, which is Southern Tasmania. At first glance I was shocked to see the amount of hills, trees and green space in general. Something very different from the city life in Melbourne.

We spent the first day climbing the famous Mount Wellington, one of the highest points in Tasmania. The weather was chilly, but we got some amazing sights out of it, including a waterfall view which I had never seen before.

The second day we traveled to Richmond, Tasmania to go to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. Being an animal lover, this was naturally my favorite day. I touched a koala bear, saw a tasmanian devil and best of all fed a kangaroo.

The third day, our last day, we stayed in central Hobart to explore the city. This basically meant that we spent way too much money on food and shopping. Lunch was compliments of the Hobart port, where things like fish and chips or calamari was all you could find to eat. I also collected various Tasmanian trinkets and souvenirs for friends and family back home.

There are still a few more days of break left, so check back to find out where my next Australian adventure takes me!
