Life in Smithton, North West Tasmania

We have been at RiverBreeze Caravan and Cabin Park for seven weeks now and are thoroughly enjoying our time here. The park isn’t too busy with tourists at present as we are in the early part of winter. However Ray is keeping very busy by helping Greg (the owner) with a variety of projects to enhance the park. Β This is keeping Ray quite fit as is their regular early morning cycling.

The weather has been up and down with a mixture of sunny and wet/windy days but that is to be expected in winter! This has provided a vastly changing landscape out of the caravan window and below are a selection of pics taken on site over recent weeks.

We are situated on the tidal Duck River which is full of birdlife. I am getting great enjoyment from photographing them. I have even been fortunate enough to see the white form of the Grey Goshawk which is on the Tasmanian Endangered Species list.

Some of the other birds seen regularly include, Royal Spoonbill, Great Egret, White Faced Heron, Night Heron, Pelican, Pacific Gull and a variety of Cormorants and ducks.

  1. Gotta join Ray and say that it is some pretty pictures πŸ™‚ I’ll be venturing from my small apartment in Denmark to Melbourne in 2 weeks, and I can’t wait to experience the wild life in Australia. Pretty sure it is a bit more extraordinary than the Danish wild life πŸ˜€


  2. Great photos Jude. That’s one thing I am not good at. Will look at getting a decent camera down the track. Just using phone and ipad at moment. Love the north west of Tasmania. In fact love all of Tassie.
