Watermill Cottage Gathering
Sunland Gathering Watermill Cottage 2020
March 2, 2020
To finish our Tasmanian tour we revisited Watermill Cottage in order to take part in a mini gathering of fellow Sunland Caravan owners. In total we had 12 vans, 2 of whom were Tasmanians and organised the get-together. Of the rest 1 was from Victoria, 1 from NSW and all the other 8 were Queenslanders.

Last time we were here, just over a year ago, we visited Seahorse Word at nearby Beauty Point; this time we went to the Beaconsfield Mining and Heritage Cantre; this is the mine from which the two miners were retrieved in 2006 and which later closed in 2012.

The Beaconsfield community has done an amazing job in creating the museum and depicted every aspect of the mine’s history and development. The images here take a brief look at some of the features.
