Launceston: Cataract Gorge and Bay of Fires Wines

After a good night's sleep, I woke up and prepared some simple breakfast for everyone. It was a nice experience cooking in such a beautiful kitchen. When I was cooking, Phin Zhe did not disturb me. There were so many things to keep him occupied. Daddy continued to sleep until breakfast was ready. Seriously we could not find a single claw at this apartment. :)

It was our last day in Tasmania. The next day we would fly back to Melbourne. We made it a very relaxing day which we would only visit two places, Cataract Gorge and a winery. Before that, we went to get some Tinnies Pies. Well, reviews were good in tripadvisor. But our votes still went to Richmond Bakery.

Cataract Gorge, a piece of natural wilderness, only 15 minutes drive from Launceston city. We spent the whole morning in Cataract Gorge.

After lunch, we went to Bays of Fires. Even though we purchased few bottles from them, but we were not very happy with the services. We might not have visited enough winery, but this was the first time we had to reuse the same glass for wine tasting. :(

Back in the apartment, Phin Zhe had his favorite activity again. Feeding the hens were easy, but not the rabbits. The rabbits were hiding most of the time. Thanks to the friendly owner, Jo. She found us the rabbit and captured a lovely family photo for us.

After dinner, i followed the recipe card on the fridge, took out the ingredients provided in the apartment and baked 3 delicious muffins for tomorrow breakfast. The only disappointment we had was we could not have stayed longer in this apartment.
