From Hobart and time with family and friends, I headed North up the Midland Highway, through many little towns and beautiful countryside with striking metal sculptures depicting times past, to an historic town called Oatlands on the shores of Lake Dulverton. Named by Govenor Macquarie in 1821, it is important as it contains the largest number of original Georgian buildings in a village setting in Australia, made of sandstone and built by convicts in the early 19th century. From here I backtracked, and drove to see the Central Plateau area and the Highland Lakes. Unfortunately the weather was dreadful, visibility poor, the roads unsealed and churned into mud by speeding logging trucks, and I continued on to Deloraine where I stayed. No photos taken in this little town – it was just too wet and I retired to a mediocre motel for the night.
