28th February, 2012
programme of today is told fast. After sleeping in I went walking. I
started in the harbour. There I watched a huge ship which was in the
harbour since Saturday. Along the shore I walked to Sandy Bay and was
surprised how fast I got there. Back I went through Battery Point
which I visited already at the beginning of my trip. After lunch I
had to wash the clothes and to put everything into the backpack. To
save some space my old trekking shoes finished their trip here. They
are definitively gone and the holes are too big.

I was sightseeing in Hobart. In the town there live more than 200'000
people, but the atmosphere here is very relaxed. I walked from
Salamaca Place up ot Battery Point. Battery Point has its name from
the canons which got installed here in the 18th century.
Still today you can see old houses here. In the close by park I had a
nice view to the sea. Then I took the tourist bus to the Tasmania
Botanic Garden. I stayed some time in this gorgeous park and enjoyed
the wonderful trees and flowers. Back in town I made a walk along the
harbour. As it was already noon, many of the fishing boats were
already back. Then I strolled along the shopping street and had a
look at the fashion of Australia. Now I have already seen the most
important things of Hobart.
