Day 8 – Strahan to Devonport and the ferry

A relaxing start from the hotel was the perfect way to get going for todays ride as we enjoyed our last few miles in Tasmania and made our way to Devonport to catch the ferry back to mainland Australia.

On our way to Devonport we stopped in the two of Sheffield for lunch and a short walk around this interesting little town. This quiet little town is known for its murals which can be found on various buildings throughout the town. They also host an annual mural competition called the ‘Mural Fest Art Competition’ with the winning murals being kept on the walls.

On the way from Strahan to Devenport in the historic mining town Zeehan we found a little shop with incredible show-case of crystals and minerals. Owner shared his knowledge of his collection with a genuine passion.

I left Tasmania with mixed feelings as it is such a stunning part of the world that it was hard to say goodbye but at the same time it was exciting to be heading back to mainland Australia for the next part of our tour. A relaxed dinner in Devonport and then we loaded the bikes on to the ferry and set sail back to Melbourne.
