The view from
George Woodhouse Scenic Lookout.
On-route to Gunns Plains Cave, we stopped off to look at Preston
Falls. It is a short easy walk from the road.
We then drove on, passing through some lush looking farmland. We soon arrived at Gunns Plains
Cave. The tours are on the hour, so we had time to check out the
local dairy cows with their calves. Boy, were they noisy. There is also a memorial to
Ronald Campbell Gunn, noted botanist and explorer of early Tasmania.
The cave is apparently the best and most accessible cave in
Tasmania, but the tour is worth a visit just for the tour guide alone. He is quite a
character and we were lucky to be the only ones in the tour.
Leaving Gunns Plains, we stopped to check out George Woodhouse Scenic Lookout
on the way to Burnie. There is a plaque to George Gordan Woodhouse (14/4/1913 -
11/6/1996) at rest at his beloved plains.
