Tasmania – Mt Field NP & Lake St Clair

Back to the future! I mean nature πŸ™‚ Yea, we’re back in the true Tasie wilderness.

Po navsteve pervezni MONY bylo potreba se navratit do prirody a zregenerovat se od mesta. Ach ta divocina v Tasmanii…



Mt Field National Park
Home to Tasie’s best waterfalls and much more. This National Park is beloved by many locals and after a short intense visit it is understandable. If you time your visit and you are lucky enough you will be spared the asian invasion and you can enjoy many beautiful walks and most of all – the Russell Falls. At the beginning of the Tasie journey we’ve heard that there’s ongoing dispute amongst Tasmanians whether Russell or Liffrey has the best falls. We can now safely and proudly say that Russell falls rock ! They definitely have the genuine surprised WOW reaction when you see them for the first time. Totally worth it.
And make sure you check out the Horseshoe falls and possibly everything that you can in the whole park. Pictures are down in the gallery as the falls are just too big and awesome to be resized πŸ™‚

Lake St. Clair is completely different from Mt Field NP and yet they are very close to each other

Lake St. Clair
This one day stop was an appetizer for our final adventure which is of course Mt Craddle. St. Clair hosts many walks and is also a final stop for Overland Track. Yes, we have seen quite a lot of satisfied walkers πŸ™‚ Because of weather or limited time we had to choose a medium distance walk – Shadow Lake + a quick peak into the Platypus Bay.

Tasie is always full of natural surprises and this one was quite sci-fi. You don’t find 7 cm caterpillar with such vibrant colours every day. At first we thought that he/she was dead as it was slightly covered with ants but after small wake-up call he/she seems very eager to get going. Too bad we didn’t see the next stage which is the Emperor Moth. Next time πŸ™‚

Road is open, end is unclear, wilderness is unforgiving. Adventure awaits, don’t wait forever!

Mt Field National Park
Velmi oblibeny narodni park mezi mistnimi obyvateli a hlavne domov pro Russell vodopady. Pri prijezdu do Tasmanie sme zjistili, ze existuje pre mezi mistnaky jestli sou hezci Russell nebo Liffrey. Inu, videli sme oboje a odpoved je jasna jak facka: Russell Falls. V momente kdy dojdete pod vodopady tak nastavay skutecny a necekany WOW vyraz. Fotka vodopadu tenokrat je pouze v galerii, protoze by to byla fakt urazka kdybychom tu fotku zmensovali a orezavali πŸ™‚ Pochopite az uvidite.

Za prohlidku urco stoji i pobliz schovane Horseshoe (ve tvaru podkovy) falls. Kvuli casu sme mohli projit jen cas parku, ale navsteva za to rozhodne stala a opet se nam potvrdilo dulezite pravidlo cestovani: nekterych veci se neda nasytit, ale je cas od casu vse stridat. Po dulezite komercni a civilni zastavce v Hobartu sme si krasne uzili Russell Falls, ktere bychom pravdepodobne tolik neocenili kdybychom je videli jako treba 4te vodopady v rade. Mesta jsou pro nas vetsinou otravna, ale predstavuji velmi dulezity kontrastni prvek ci restart. 10ti mesicni praxe to fakt potvrzuje.

Krajina u Lake St. Clair je naprosto odlisna od Mt Field Narodniho Parku a to jsou od sebe fakt kousicek.

Lake St. Clair
Jezero, par kopcu a hromada moznosti na prochazku. Pro nas to byl jen takovy predkrm pred finalni a posledni teckou za celou expedici, ale stacilo na vyhnani ocekavani na maximum. St. Clair je i mimo jine finalni zastavka pro svetove vyhlaseny Overland Track a taky sme videli hafo spokojenych a unavenych tramperu. My sme si kvuli pocasi a casu vyslapli pouze na cca 10km okruh, ale stacilo to:

Fesak, co? Housenka od Emperor Moth (Mura Cisarska asi) a macik docela. Ono nejakych 7 cm je docela dost na takhle macatou housenku. Bobik hlavne od zacatku delal mrtvyho brouka (heheheh), protoze byl oblezlej mravencema, ale po kratkem stourani klaciku se hned probral a chtel se jit taky projit. Par minut sme nevericne zkoumali ty krasny barvy, styl pohybu a uplne vsechno na tomhle dalsim zazraku prirody. Tasmanie proste neprestava a neprestane prekvapovat.

Cesta je otevrena, cil neni jasny, divocina neuprosna a dobrodruzstvi ceka! Jen vy necekejte vecne, koukejte zvednout zadnice a jit objevovat neznamo. Doma takovouhle fesandu housenku nepotkate πŸ™‚
