I have just returned from a quick trip to Tasmania. My wife and I stayed at a very nice hotel in Launceston and this was to be our base for our short visit to this part of Australia.
Undeterred by the rain, and accompanying dark grey conditions, we set off for our drive with the Bay of Fires our destination.
Our first stop was a little village about 80 kilometres from Launceston named Avoca situated on the banks of the South Esk River. Avoca has a rich history and still has some of its historic buildings.
In the above photo, I was fortunate that the sun made an appearance through the grey.
The old Avoca School was the first Catholic school in the Fingal Valley.
Now used as the Post Office, the Parish Hall was originally built as a storeroom for the local hotel. It was later sold, then donated to the Anglican Church.
