Its the jurassic coast... its not allowed to change! :teeth:

Well there's a coincidence, 75% of Tasmania is Jurassic too. Only problem is it's Jurassic dolerite, (hard unyielding volcanic rock deposited when we tore away from Antarctica), rather than the namby pamby limestones and shales that you Southerners got away with, so our Jurassic Coast looks a bit different. (and higher at 1100M or so)

These are from Mt Wellington (top of) overlooking Hobart. (nicked off someone else's site)

Well there's pretty much a standing invite to anyone here (excluding Banned Members of course), who wants to come down here and do a bit........it would, I suspect be the Furthest South YD Gig yet (unless there's been one one in NZ or Tierra del Fuego of course).

Just don't leave it until you're stood in Arrivals at Hobart Airport before you PM me, that's all. :teeth:

Whereabouts do they live?

Please don't say New Norfolk, which shares many of the characteristics of it's namesake - it's the only place I know of where the local GP was done for having sex with......his rotweiler......(he videoed it) - most of em get done for doing it with a patient but this is New Norfolk we're talking about. :eek:mg:

My drive to work passes here:



My whole journey is along the coast road. It never fails to set me up for the day.

I did a couple of dives in Tierra Del Fuego. Have to say they were pretty rubbish. I think they're probably the only sea dives I've ever done where I didn't see any fish, lots of crab, and these squat lobster things that hurtled off in the distance, but no fish at all.

Tazzie's the only state I've not been to. Keep meaning to go.
