This is the final day of exploring Tasmania’s north west with my friend Petrina. We visited Blue Hills Honey at Mawbanna and the lady there told us we should go see a waterfall which was just a little further down the road. By the way, the honey farm is a great place to stop for some honey, plenty of products and bee and honey merchandise and honey tastings too. I especially loved the Blackberry honey and the Tarkine Wilderness honey, yum!
Dip Falls was easy to find just as the lady said, and after parking the car, there was a brief walk to a high vantage point to see the waterfall from above.
See all those steps on the other side? Sooo many steps! It was okay going down but took a lot of effort to go back up, especially when it became windy and started raining!
But the view from the bottom was lovely, so worth the sore legs! 😀
As the squally weather increased, we hit the road back home, stopping briefly at a pretty spot called Boat Harbour.
We then stopped at House of Anvers Chocolate Factory at Latrobe near Devonport on the way back home. I recommend treating yourself to a few of the hand made chocolates in their display cabinet at the counter, yum!
We then drove through Deloraine and visited Ashgrove Cheese Farm for some cheese tastings and to look at the adorable painted cow statues they have dotted around the property. They have a cafe and a viewing window where you can watch them at work making their products. Their shop is packed with dairy goodness – cheese, cream, butter, milk, ice cream and other gourmet products. I couldn’t help myself and ended up bringing home with me some farmhouse butter, Bush Pepper cheese (my favourite!) and some packets of their crunchy cheesey snacks called AmazeBalls in different flavours.
Our last stop before home was the Christmas Hills Raspberry Farm for a bite to eat in their lovely cafe. They also have the most delicious chocolate coated raspberries in their fridge section in the shop part of the farm, just heavenly!
And so our north west Tasmania adventure has come to an end. I’m looking forward to being able to go back there again and do some more exploring. There is heaps to see and do there, definitely recommend a visit to the region if you come to Tasmania.
