Today we will make our way up to the North West town of Stanley. Firstly a refreshment stop at the historical town of Evandale before heading off to the fabulous Scottish Scone and Highlander shop in Sheffield. There will be time to stroll around this picturesque town known as the ‘Town of Murals’. Travelling on past majestic Mt Roland, we will continue on to the little town of Wilmot which boasts the home of the first G.J. Coles store.

    Day 2 Tuesday 7th September Stanley, Cradle Mountain Stanley is a totally restored Bass Strait fishing village with quaint little shops and tiny, brightly painted cottages neatly terraced on the lower slopes of an extinct volcano called The Nut. Breathe the cleanest air in the world (proved by recent scientific measurements at nearby Cape Grim).

    Day 3 Wednesday 8th September Cradle Mountain, Zeehan, Strahan. This morning we travel to Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake returning to the Chateau for lunch. We then head off down the West Coast with a stop at the marvellous town of Zeehan. Here you can explore the grandiose buildings of Victorian days which are being restored as they were when it was a major mining town for gold, silver, lead and tin. The Gaiety Theatre which hosted Enrico Caruso and Lola Montez is well worth a visit as is the Museum. Zeehan’s most distinguished daughter is Eileen Joyce the internationally acclaimed pianist who also performed in her home theatre. This promises to be a most enjoyable time of exploring Zeehan’s former glory days. We then head on to Strahan situated on Macquarie Harbour and known as the ‘jewel of the North West, capital of the wilderness.’ Our ac- commodation tonight are 9 historic fishermen’s cottages. These are quaint, individual, fully restored 4 star cottages situated right on the waterfront. You will need to book early to reserve a cottage. Otherwise we have additional rooms available at Waterfront Terrace next door. Dinner is at View 42 Restaurant which overlooks Strahan. Tonight you have the option of staying in or having fellowship with local Village Christians at the Anglican Church. Overnight at Strahan Village. B D

    Day 4 Thursday 9th September Strahan, West Coast Railway, Strahan Today we will take one of the world’s great railway journeys. This railway was built over 100 years ago. You will marvel at the tenacity and skill of the original builders, and experience the authentically recreated trestle bridges and ‘Abt’ rack and pinion system for the steep grades. The West Coast Railway crosses the wild King River and climbs through sheer sided rain forested gorges on its 35 kilometre journey. Stories of the railway are told by local guides and lunch is provided on board. You’ll have some free time in Stanley upon our return, perhaps to browse some local shops or galleries. Maybe you’d like to see the local production of ‘The Ship That Never Was’. The play is about the escape of the last 10 convicts on Sarah Island and it is sure to bring a chuckle and thoroughly entertain. Tonight your dinner destination is you own choice. Hamer’s Hotel is highly recommended or perhaps you would prefer to sample local seafood. Overnight at St
