The Overland Diaries pt.XII – north-easterlies and the new toy

Weather in the Tasmanian highlands comes in from the southwest. That’s just what it does – usually anyway… On my most recent trip we had five out of six days  of north-easterlies, bringing with it some of the strangest weather I’ve had up there. It was warm (mid-twenties for the whole trip, even at night), wet (light overnight and morning rain every day) and ridiculously muggy. The leaches and mossies loved it, but the Mersey is still the lowest I’ve seen it…

In other news, my first outing with the new EM5 and it performed admirably. I shot with the m.ZD 12mm and CV Nokton 25mm and I’ll post a few thoughts on it soon.

Kia Ora Creek swimming hole – this isn’t the one that’s accessed from the Overland Track near the bridge, but another cascade a few hundred metres further downstream.
