Lots of activity at the cove. Cruise ships arrived and departed morning and evening during our 3 day stay. Art galleries, cafes, restaurants. Henry Jones Long Bar, small intimate with original beautifully preserved sandstone bricks. IXL factory memorabilia as part of refurbishment.

This whole area became an amazing display of hundreds of interesting, historic boats, related displays, entertainment and Tasmanian produce for the 2017 event. Do not miss it in 2019.
