Tasmania


I had a chance to spend a few days in Tasmania with my family recently. Of course my GPS went along to check for any previously un-mapped roads in Open Street Map.

We stayed in Woodbridge, and visited Bruny Island (pictured) and Franklin.

Woodbridge is such a beautiful village. The sunrises and sunsets were breathtaking.

Sort Of Dunno Nothin'

We saw this on TV the other night. Very good. Sort Of Dunno Nothin' by Peter Denahy.

Jindabyne

The town in NSW, rather than the movie. We went there recently to make an attempt at Koscuiszko.

The weather turned against us on top of the "mountain", so we didn't end up doing the walk, but it was interesting to see Jindabyne again.

I used to live in the area some time ago, and it has changed a lot since then (20 years ago?). I'm not sure the town is physically much bigger, but it seems "culturally" bigger (if that makes sense).

On the OSM side, Jindabyne is already pretty well mapped. I did add a couple of streets, and did a bit of East Jindabyne. I have a track for the foot/cycle path around the lake which I hope to put in OSM in the next week or so.
