It’s 11C & there’s a howling chilly wind- Sounds like an ideal day for a country drive.
With Zuki now in Hobart at Polly dogs house, we head off to possibly the best fish & chips in Southern Tasmania.
Word seems to have gotten out, Dunalley fish market is packed. The two men behind the counter, look like they’ve just jumped off a fishing trawler & are really busy cooking fish. Don’t expect a board menu here, it’s all about fresh fish, locally caught & processed onsite.
What you get, is what they have- It’s fun watching people get their head around this concept! For today it’s a mix of octopus, squid & two types of fish, lightly dusted with breadcrumbs, fried or possibly grilled.
At the front door are three holding tanks with colourful fish swimming around-great for big & little kids. Inside, the ‘rustic recycled maritime’ influenced eating area, comes complete with their elderly dog, sitting near the wood heater. Later he takes us for a walk on the jetty & proudly barks at the resident seal putting on a lively comic show. You get the feeling these two have done this all before.
Our last stop, is the gorgeous Marion bay & Bream creek area-for future canoeing potential. (pictured right & not to be missed) There’s a hardy bunch of surfers braving the elements-good on em! We elect to drive past Sorell’s antique shops, we’ll leave that for another trip. All in all, it’s been a top day out & worth the chilly drive..
