For the uninitiated (like us!) the famous foghorn at Low Head Lighthouse sounds at noon every Sunday. The world’s only operable G-type diaphone is popular with tourists in Tasmania and we now have a real appreciation for the deep and powerful tone.

The region’s natural beauty is also remarkable. The Low Head Pilot Station Maritime Museum boasted a gorgeous vista in every direction.

Our luck-laced visit continued and we were blessed with fabulous weather. Our mobile-phone snaps were enhanced with blue skies and turquoise waters. As we mentioned via social media, the colours were just extraordinary.

We had a light lunch at Coxswain’s Cafe, which is housed in a cute little cottage on the grounds of Low Head Pilot Station. The chicken wrap filled the gap; then we powered on with our Tamar Valley winery excursion.
