Tassie Tour Journal Day 4

Day 4 = Boat day. Cruising in the World Heritage Area on Gordon River.

‘Hell’s Gates’ (top right) is where Macquarie Harbour meets the Ocean. The worst convicts were sent to Sarah Island (inside Macquarie Harbour) between 1822 and 1833. The conditions were harsh and many convicts considered it worse than a death sentence. I do think that these ‘Hell’s Gates’ aren’t in line with what Jesus says in Matthew 7:13-14.

The tour on Sarah Island was very good. The Salmon for lunch was even better.

There was an audience of 50+ oldies on hand in the arvo for a pantomime, ‘The Ship that never was’. As two of the youngest members of the audience (and therefore at a lower risk of heart attack) Row and I were both involved in the drama. Good times. The 1 hour show told the story of the last ship (Frederick) built on Sarah Island. The 10 convicts who built the boat stole it and fled to Chile. Fascinating story. You’ll have to go to find out how the story ends (or look it up on Wikipedia).
