We have finished 2016 in a great manner camping for 5 days in Wynyard and visiting the district including Fossil Bluff, Boat Harbour Beach, Sisters Beach, Philosopher Falls, Waratah and other beautiful spots.
Stanley is town located in Tasmania north-west coast and a great “home base” to explore the west coast and inland National Parks.
We visited the west coast after a extreme low pressure system giving us the opportunity to see the sea at it best.
Also, at Stanley we went to the top of “The Nut”to appreciate the views of the valley.
Here are some photos from the top of The Nut.
And here are some photos of the west coast
We went to Scamander on the east coast of Tasmania. Nice area with very large beach.
Carlos and family took his vintage Millard behind the Disco.

We stripped the outside paint, removed all windows and resealed them using Sikaflex marine, restored the four seasons hatch, replaced the full running gear ( axle, brakes and tyres) resealed the J rails and roof seams and painted with premier plus 4 coats of paint.
Inside we removed the old vinyl floor and replaced it after giving a good coat of decking oil to the plywood floor.
The cabinet doors were replaced with marine plywood. All the interior was painted. Beds restored and new matters bought.
The end result

We was looking for a vintage caravan to restore and use it on our camping trips in Tasmania and we found a 1977 Franklin Arrow which is a nice “canvas” for the project.
It need a lot of work, inside and out but nothing that we cannot do.
This the dairy of our trips, camping and photography in Australia with some photos of our previous vehicles as well.
The above photo is of our restored 1977 16 foot Franklin Arrow at Ulverston, north coast of Tasmania.
