In October 2023, I crossed continent # 6 off my list. I visited the states of Victoria (Melbourne), Queensland (Cairns and Kuranda), and Tasmania (one of the most rugged and least touched natural environments in all of Australia). My favorite experiences were snorkeling along the Great Barrier Reef, holding a koala, perusing eccentric art at the MONA in Hobart, strolling through ancient rainforests in Mount Field National Park, photographing the foamy Southern Ocean, cruising the quiet Gordon River, bushwalking in Cradle Mountain-Lake St Claire National Park, slurping down fresh oysters on the orange lichen covered granite boulders on the Bay of Fires, spotting little penguins in Bicheno, scrambling Mt. Amos in Freycinet National Park, and indulging in the vibrant food scene of Melbourne.
