New Years in Hobart

New Year was celebrated in Hobart. We were booked into a hostel so decided to sample some Tasmanian delights at The Taste. Our top taste award went to Two Metres Tall Ale Company who produce the closest thing we could find in Australia to real bitter - no fizz.

We spent the rest of the afternoon hunting down more beer in Hobart.

Looked around the yatchs that had completed the Sydney to Hobart race.

Celebrated the start of 2008 with fireworks.

On New Years Day Mark proved what happens to climbers when they can't climb enough. Running is a dangerous sport.

After climbing at Mount Wellington we at last experienced a proper Aussie Bar-b-que.

The views from Mount Wellington were impressive.

After two and a bit weeks of 'holiday' it was finally back to Melbourne for some serious work finding just so we can pay for the next episode of the trip.
