While being serenaded by Jo Stafford’s rendition of “Autumn Leaves“, you will arrive at Fentonbury, approximately 72 kilkometers west of Hobart.
If you travel well along the B61 Gordon River Road and ignore the turn to Gordon Lake, (accidentally traveling straight along the C608 Ellendale Road), you to find yourself joining with the A10 Lyell Highway. Fentonbury, named for Michael Fenton, is situated between Westerway and Westeria.
Drive slowly, because you will be frequently distracted by many colourful Autumn scenes, as in the photo. It is a pleasant diversion.
Tasmania, is a rich state, if only for its spectacular scenery and friendly people.
Editor’s note: the area near Westerway/Fentonbury (Mt Field National Park) was one of the locations used as the setting for the movie ‘The Hunter’, now screening across the USA and Canada.
