Leaving South Arm after 5 days we were intemding to stay with freinds at Glaziers Bay again but they have had too much rain to be able to access the paddock and curretly the winds are very high and gusty as well so an alternative plan was needed. Having arranged to have Monday lunch with some other old friends we opted for the Franklin Campground, a Council owed area for $10/night and the fourth night free (4 day limit). This gave us arriving Friday to leaving Tuesday and also fitted in Saturday night Dinner with friends from Glaziers Bay at The Moorings (the Franklin pub).
The plan from here is still to be decided as we want to fit in both Cockle Creek (as far South as you can go) and Bruny Island as well as revisiting Queenstown and Strahan on the West Coast before the Christmas Holiday season is on us. 
A walking track extends along much of the Huon River Foreshore here with tables and shelters; the campground area includes a pubic toilet block and a Dump Point and water filling tap.
We were also treated to one of the many ducks here taking her new brood for a swim.
