Tasmania

The fairytale land, the true wilderness, tons of blackberries, out of this world landscape and much more – Hello Tasmania!

Zeme jak vystrizena z pohadky, drava a divoka priroda, tuny ostruzin, nebeska Krajina a mnohem vice – Jedem do Tasmanie! A na konec clanku zodpovime otazku, kterou si kazdy spravny Cech aspon jednou za zivot polozi.



You can find some “to-the-death” boring facts on Wiki and here we will give you our 3 week road trip around the whole Tassie.

Moorakoora cave

Let’s start from the underground, shall we? Our main reason for visiting this cave system was the glowworm population.
Stable 9 C temperature and no light at all. How does it sound? That’s Moorakoora cave. It has some interesting and suprising features and to be honest those glowworms are not the best actually. The whole experience was nice.

For those who still remember the Alien movie series this should be a small teaser from the cave. Fortunately there was no nasty surprise inside.

Liffrey Falls

One of the most beautiful falls of Tassie they say. Are they right? Well, to be absolutely honest – they are beautiful but far from the TOP ones. We enjoyed the whole walk but the best part was not planned and it happened sort of spontaneously – we both tried plunging into the very cold river for at least 30-60 seconds. Hell yeah! Now that’s highly recommended. It makes you stronger, healthier and you feel like a super hero for a while. By the way the water temperature is approx. 11C (and I lost a bet).

Goumbat Bluff

A very well hidden walk that we accidentally discovered during driving and admiring the scenery. The climb is 500 vertical metres and it’s quite juicy during some rocky sections but it will make you stronger and prepared for other walks that you await you as a MUST-TO-DO in Tassie.

Meander Falls

Our first wildlife encounter – Mr. Tiger snake in person and later on another one. So yeah, just be careful as they love sunbathing and warming up (it’s quite easily predictable on some places).

Meander Falls area is another hidden gem often overlooked but it offers some truly remote 1 day walks that you give a taste of the Tassie wilderness.

Our pick is definitely the Chasm Falls track that was just awesome! And the final part is a true test of nerves. This picture may give you some idea of it, but you just have to do it for yourself. It was one of the most intense and best experiences in the whole Tassie.

Swiss village – Grindewald

From wilderness straight to Europe? No problem 🙂 This was quite short and pleasant visit back to Europe. We dined in the middle of the square and we really felt like being in mountain Swiss village. Good job guys!

Tasmanie je pro nasi expedici neco jako pomyslna tresnicka na dorticku. Tomino o Tassie basnil uz od samotneho pocatku. Hned po Kimberley to pro nej bylo NEJ NEJ misto kde nam to musi vyjit. A taky ze vyslo! Bylo to opravdu o koule, ale vyslo to.

Po zaplaceni $430 za trajekt (s tim, ze Rada jela na cerno) sme se na tri tydny dostali na tenhle relativne maly ostrov, ktery vetsina turistu velmi casto naprosto ignoruje a DIKY BOHU ZA TO!!!! Tak se do toho pastime, hm?

Moorakoora Jeskyne

Na tmave a vlhke prostory sme nikdy moc nebyli, ale tady pry se vyskytuji ty svitici cervici takze sme usoudili, ze to tu bude hlavne levnejsi nez na Zelandu, kde by nas to stalo pul jater a ledvinu. Prekvapeni se nakonec konalo a ve smyslu, ze cervici byly pouze cast celeho zazitku a dost zajimavych veci sme se priucili. Tomino urcite fantaziruje jak si nejakou takovou jeskyni dostat na budouci zahradu, protoze stabilnich 9 stupnu je dokonalost na kvaseni.

01

Videli sme mrte zajimavych prirodnich ukazu, par hezkych velkych pavouku, cervici fakt sviti ve tme a je nad slunce jasne, ze tahle a I jine podobne jeskyne sou fakt FAKT stare (mozna I starsi nez Helenka Vondrackova).

Na zaver takova lahudka pro milovnky filmove serie Vetrelec. Vetsina lidi tohodle slizouna opojimela, ale Tominovi neutek. Nastesti z nej na nas nic slizkyho nevyskocilo 🙂

Liffrey Falls

Z tech 9 stupnu sme se potrebovali trochu ohrat a tak sme si zasli na kratkou prochazku podel Liffrey falls a zkusili sme si dat otuzovani v 11 stupnu teple/studene vode (Tomino prohral sazku no…). Zazitek nadherny a clovek se po tom citi lepe nez po kafi a jako super hrdina. Zvladli sme nakonec oba asi 3 ponoreni po 30-60 vterinach. Jen skoda, ze sme si s sebou nevzali slivovicku na navratovku.

Goumbat Bluff

Zni to jak nazev vojenskeho manevru nebo nejake francouzske jidlo, co? Kdepak! Je to takovy sympaticky kopecek s celkem utajenym vstupem a celou stezkou, na kterou sme narazili uplne nahodou. Prevyseni bylo nakonec 500 metru a rozhodne sme si nestezovali na zimu 🙂 V prvnich dnech sme to tam teda cpali nahoru a dolu o sto-sest.

Swiss Village – Grindewald

Puvodne sme si chteli z nasich evropskych ctenaru vystrelit a udelat clanek jenom z teto vesnicky a tvrdit, ze sme si udelali libanky ve Svycarskych Alpach, ale lenost nakonec zvitezila. Jedna se o malou vesnicku postavenou celkem precizne a nakonec sme opravdu meli I pocit, ze sme v nejakem horskem stredisku. Bravo architektovi a stavitelum!

Meander Falls

A tady konecne zacala prava Tasmanska divocina. Maly narodni park, kde nebyla temer ani noha a my meli prirodu jen pro sebe. Vybrali sme si prochazku ke Chasm Falls coz by se dalo prelozit jako vodopady ve skulince a nakonec to byl nervydrasajici zazitek. Finale cele vychazky spocivalo v prejiti kmenu, ktery sedel na asi 6 metru siroke prurve ve skale, skrz kterou bourily vodopady asi 10 metru pod vama a voda pote padala jeste NIZE. Kmen mel improvizovane zabradli z natazenych dratu a clovek opravdu videl jen kmen a pod sebou tu silenost. Foto ani zdaleka nevystihuje ten nadherny zazitek.

01

No a po prelezeni sme to oslavili dalsim otuzovanim v malem prirodnim jezirku, kde voda mela dokonce 8 stupnu a dostali sme teda pekne zabrat!

Ta velka otazka na zaver

No tak schvalne, hm? Jakou otazku si muze temer kazdy Cech aspon jednou za zivot polozit? Je nejake pivo lepsi nez Plzen? Je Milos Zeman pouze vytvor nasi zvracene fantazie? Existuji Stinadla?
Ne ne neeee. Ani jedna z nich a ani jedna z dalsich podobnych.

Prdi hadi?

Vazeni, je nam velkou cti jednou pro vzdy na toto zodpovedet a utnout vsechny vedecke ci dalsich experimenty. Kdyz sme na zacatku Chasm Falls vychazky nachytali mistniho tygriho hada jak se vyhriva a nasledne ho dupanim zahnali mimo stezku tak se nam dostalo nalezite odplaty, ze pan mily zvedl ocasek, vypustil naloz a pekne si odzadu odfrknul. A s timto se s vami dneska rozloucime 🙂
