Around-Oz: Living the Dream!

 

Northern Tasmania

In the Strand in historic George Town Tasmania.

This is a wonderfully colourful owner built letterbox. The dog actually belongs to the 2004 CMCA Tasmanian Rally coordinator, Don Mackrill.

On the very scenic road into Gravelly Beach from Exeter in Tasmania just north of Launceston.

This is just about as good as it gets, and so far is set to get our vote for the best letterbox in Tassie! Is it perhaps the Ned Kelly version of a Tassie Devil??

On the very scenic road from Gravelly Beach to Batman Bridge in Northern Tasmania.

This caught our eye because it was such an "economical" letterbox! The base was an old waterpipe, the top a piece of terracotta and the box any old bit of galvanised iron!

On the very scenic road from Gravelly Beach to Batman Bridge in Northern Tasmania.

Interesting road this one, as all the letterboxes are on the one side of the road and usually in groups. Right beside the beautiful Tamar River too!

A bit different and on the road from Gravelly Beach to Batman Bridge in Northern Tasmania.

The lady owner thought we were a bit daft photographing this letterbox!

Yes this is all home made and a great example of country ingenuity. Very few letterboxes of merit on this fairly lonely stretch of road between Bridport and Gladstone.
