Out of the ‘forests’ we are heading to Queenstown into Tasmania’s mineral territory on the west coast!
The landscape changes, devoid of trees to barren land and multi coloured rocks which have been mined. Mount Lyell contains 22 known ore bodies, This area was known for the copper wealth since 1935.
Driving up to Iron Blow Lookout feels like you are on another planet. The colours of the minerals and leaching on the rocks makes a wonderful vista.
