We found ourselves overnighting in the little town of Triabunna on our way to Hobart. The town gets its name from an aboriginal word meaning "Tasmanian Native Hen" which are found around Tassie but now extinct on the mainland. There are a couple of great free camps there, one by the pub, one by the river. The thing that struck me about this charming little place were all the old buildings. We camped behind the pub and there were some gorgeous abandoned buildings right next door. I believe these used to be the old mill. We saw bumble bees and the kids picked mulberries & plums off the trees. They had a ball! You can get the boat to Maria Island which we have been told was worth seeing as well, but we were keen to hit the road again & head for Hobart.

My image of the old mill: Converted to black & white then overlaid with a texture of the stonework on the building itself. I thought getting down low so the grass was visibly long enhanced the abandoned look.
