Oct 18 Arrive Hobart. We meet Matt and Maria and Jim and Maureen, friends from back home who have also come over to Hobart for the Vets golf. Mures is a well known fish restaurant on the Hobart waterfront where we enjoy some fresh seafood.
After lunch we head to the top of Mount Wellington with commanding views over Hobart and the Derwent Valley. It is 1,270 metres high (around 4,000 feet) and the views from the top are stunning. Imagine our surprise when we reach the summit and encounter snow !
