Paul and Elizabeth's Adventures in Oz

Day 30, Wednesday, September 25, 2002—

We bid farewell to the east coast today and headed inland and then north to the north coast. The drive took us through more gorgeous Tas country. On our way to our destination, West Ulverstone, we made a stop in Launceston. Launceston is Tasmania's second largest city and the home of Boag's brewery, northern Tas's beer. We had booked a tour of the brewery for 11:45 a.m. The tour was terrific and included tastings of four of their brews at the end of the tour.

After the tour, we walked down to wharf and had lunch at a place called Fish & Chips. They serve their fish & chips in paper cones just the way the English do (or did) and it was really good! Then it was on to our lodgings in West Ulverstone.
