THE RaTTAToT TOUR
(Ramsay's Terrific Tag-a-long Adventure Tour of Tasmania)


For 20November 2001


Report by Syd and Alan.A

A good nights sleep and a leisurely breakfast during which we deposited a DSOA sticker next to the existing MG one on the pub's fridge. Then it was time to return to the Port Arthur site for a photo session. Steve organised for the authorities to kindly allow us to park our cars on the grass in front of the penitentiary. We then viewed the Devils Kitchen and the Tasman Arch on the way to Sorell.

The 'convoy' split up at Port Arthur and our convoy of 1 continued to the Golden Arches restaurant at Sorell where we again. We passed a few Datos going the wrong way and a few locals going our way. At Macca's we again met up with 'Mike the bike rider' and he asked us, if we saw another pair of riders called Brendan and Wendy, to wish them well as they had just got married. We passed them about 5kms south of Bucklands and threw them a quick congratulatory call as we zoomed by.

One point of interest on our way to Bicheno was the Spiky Bridge. It was a great drive cruising along the coastline, top down and sun shining. A couple of vineyards were visited on the way.

One of our convoys stopped for lunch at Swansea. Some of the Tassie towns are so small that the idea of feeding 8 people at once is a major challenge. At this particular place the cook/waitress was so flustered that she jumped at Julia's offer to help out making the drinks and serving the meals!.

We arrived at Bicheno at around 5pm and enjoyed some seafood and more light refreshments at the fisherman's bar. While some were finishing their meal, a few of us walked across to the water to look at Fairy Penguins and were rewarded for our time and patience with a couple of close encounters with these amazing little animals. Needless to say we were all excited after a great days drive.
