Australia: Dock of the Bay

Hobart dock
The dock in Hobart where I saw two people drown in a car crash

Having heard good things about Tasmania, I flew to Hobart, the state capital – it's a short one-hour flight from Melbourne, and it's easier (and cheaper) to fly than the 14-hour ferry trip aboard The Spirit of Tasmania. It wasn't more than two hours into my visit that things began to happen, and I mean happen.
