Home' Open Road Western NSW : OR0718 Contents WE WILL REMEMBER THEM: 2018 marks the centenary of the conclusion of
the First World War, the “war to end all wars.” There are generations alive who have
no direct knowledge of this conflict or of the sacrifice made by all who fought for their
country. Our debt to them is immeasurable making it more important than ever that
we remember their courage with a lasting commemoration. Approved by Her Majesty,
Queen Elizabeth II, this new crown coin honours the fallen with a moving, raised-relief
portrait of a digger remembering his mate. In the foreground, a field of poppies, the
symbol of remembrance, are created in hand-applied enamel, providing a vibrant contrast
to the pure, 24-carat gold. Struck to a high specification, only 19,999 numbered issues will
ever be minted.

Tasmania is not an enormous island, yet it changes from region
to region, which makes it excellent for easy touring routes. We
hire a Thrifty car at Hobart and set off on one of Australia’s
best road trips – the Great Eastern Drive.
For a very different Tasmanian experience, we head up to
Freycinet. Here, the country is wilder in its beauty and the
climate is drier. The ocean is home to some of the best oysters
in the world, as well as seals and, at the right time of the year,
Via a visitor information board on the side of a track in
Freycinet National Park, Alex Dudley, a wildlife biologist tells
us that: “Freycinet is one of the best places to see lizards in
Tasmania – the low, open vegetation and granite boulders
provide excellent basking and shelter opportunities. White’s
skinks, ocellated skinks, metallic skinks and southern dragons
are all commonly seen. Cool, sunny days are the best for lizard
watching, so keep a lookout.”
Freycinet National Park was declared a national park in 1916
and more than 100 years later it draws visitors from around the
world to see these its plunging cliffs, tempestuous seas and
some of the 300 offshore islands called The Nuggets.
A short drive into the national park brings us to the
unmanned Cape Tourville Lighthouse, constructed in 1971 to
ensure vessels travelling the east coast were safe. At night, it
flashes every 12 seconds at an intensity of 67,726 candles.
From the carpark, an easy 15-minute walk takes you to the
lighthouse and along the way we stop at several lookout points
with spectacular views over the Tasman Sea. Beyond the
horizon is the Freycinet Commonwealth Marine Reserve, set up
to protect marine plants and animals. It occupies about 60,000
square kilometres – almost the size of Tasmania itself.
We also get a dramatic view of Wineglass Bay, one of
Tasmania’s most photographed places. In early European days,
the bay was a whaling station and the mammals were hunted to
the brink of extinction in the 1850s. Happily, today they’re
becoming a common sight once again, especially humpback
and southern right whales.
Nestled within the national park is Freycinet Lodge’s Coastal
Pavilion, featuring nine private accommodations that are a
combination of luxury and modern eco-design. Built from
Tasmanian timber, they’ve been designed so there’s not a single
corner, just curves, including the glass through which you can
see nothing but bush, wildlife and Great Oyster Bay beyond.
You can sit on the deck and breathe the cleanest air in
Australia. And, best of all, in the evening you can soak in the
secluded outdoor bathtub and gaze at the Milky Way.
While there are all sorts of activities to enjoy at Freycinet, the
pavilions are so beautiful it’s tempting to stay put. If that’s the
case, open the cupboards and you’ll find board games, a sketch
pad and pencils, wildlife guides and playing cards. It brings back
memories of childhood holidays.
