During our visit to St Helens on the north east coast, we went to Peron Dunes. Fun was had. For those on the opposite corner of the state, we thought we’d share a little about Henty Dunes today. It also reinforces our story about the temperature in Tasmania. We’re currently enjoying the first snowfalls of the season even though we’re still celebrating autumn. Soon enough, it will be summer again, and the beaches will be calling!
photos by Dan Fellow
The images of Henty Dunes come courtesy of Dan Fellow, recently retired tourism photographer. We say “retired” but Dan intends to continue taking and sharing photos, and we’re happy about that fact here at Think Tasmania.
One piece of ordinary news for you… Dan’s original (Tasmania Photos) and newly established (Aussie Wanderer) Facebook pages have been hacked. Some people need to be taken out the back and horsewhipped. Don’t they have anything better to do with their time?
Anyway, the long and the short of it… search for “Dan Fellow” on Facebook (or see direct link below). Dan will be friending his contacts at the new address, and sharing photos from Tasmania and further afield there.
Fun for Families in Tasmania
As you can see from Dan’s photos, Henty Dunes might just be the perfect place for family fun with a toboggan or sand board. Bushwalkers also enjoy the area near Ocean Beach, as do 4WD enthusiasts on quad bikes. We are in no way comparing Peron Dunes at St Helens Point with Henty Dunes on Tasmania’s west coast… we’re just showing you another option.
Dan had lots of photos from Henty Dunes in his collection. For some obscure reason, we had immense trouble loading images to the website today. Maybe the Internet doesn’t like Hobart’s cold snap. With our IT guru away from his post – on assignment in South Australia believe it or not – I had to resist smashing the computer screen! And breathe…
