Tasmania: Australian for Cold

Posted by on March 28, 2008

I arrived in Hobart last night and was taken aback at how cold it was. The temperature was in low 50sF (12C). Thank goodness I have a stocking hat and some long sleeved. The room I have looked like a 1950s motel room with only an electric space heater to keep it warm. The heater wasn’t really that powerful. Thankfully, there were two beds in the room so I took the blanket off the second one.

I’m at an internet cafe in downtown Hobart right now. I’m trying to book some day tours for Sunday and Monday. I’d at least like to explore the national park and see some the giant hardwood trees before I leave. I’m glad I came here when I did. If I came later it would probably be even colder.
