Hobart - Harbour Cruise + Cadbury's
I'm just updating my blog in the State Library. Today has been a constructive day, waking up early for the first time in a week. Headed down to the harbour and booked in a boat cruise (with lunch) around Hobart but also a tour of Cadbury's chocolate factory to see how the stuff is made. To get to the factory on the outskirts of Hobart, we took a double-decker London Bus (don't ask me how they got it across the globe)through the streets of the town. Cadbury's Tasmania is the largest chocolate factory in the Southern Hemisphere. They were very welcoming offering us all the chocolate we wanted as we weren't allowed to eat some on the tour itself. We also weren't allowed to bring our cameras in, so no photos of Cadbury's being made but it's quite a process! The amount of chocolate they produce, it's crazy! There was an "off-limits" area which happended to be my favourite chocolate bar, Flake. They can't let anyone in because it's still a secret on how they produce it which was a shame. After the factory tour, we made our way to the boat at Hobart's harbour for lunch. A tender Watermans steak covered in Pepper Sauce and some vegetables (finally!) plus potatoes on the side was served as we sailed around Hobart. I have to admit that I preferred Hobart's boat cruise than Sydney's one. It was a nice lunch and what a setting Hobart is in, such a beautiful town. The air is so fresh and the locals are incredibly nice.
I shall be climbing up Mount. Wellington tomorrow (4.30 hours trek, not looking forward to the exercise) but first will be visiting some of the numerous pubs and bars of Hobart tonight. Sunday will be spent at Port Arthur where most convicts were sent to. Shall leave Hobart on Monday and search for a job fruit picking.
