The Hazards are the range of coastal hills the form one edge of Coles Bay in Tasmania. They were named after an American sealer who worked the area. The Hazards form the spine of the Freycinet Peninsula and ether is a great walk up the flat topped hill on the middle - Mt. Amos. Picture of that will appear soon.
They are, to say the least, scenic!
Despite its rather exotic look, the seastar in the foreground is a native species. On the day we went for a walk along this beach we found three or four of these strange animals. They seemed healthy enough, with many waving tube feet. Interestingly, they were be studiously avoided by the local gulls - maybe they taste bad!
