Our Sunday drive to Zeehan was a great opportunity for Which Way photos. The Murchison Highway is the road that goes from Somerset, just outside Burnie through the mountains and forests to Zeehan. The highway was built in 1963. Before that if you wanted to travel from Zeehan or one of the other west coast towns to Burnie or Devonport you would have had to use the Emu Bay Railway. There was no road past Waratah.
The main towns on the Murchison Highway are Tullah and Rosebery. There is still mining at Rosebery.
Finally, we come to Zeehan where the Murchison Hwy ends. I found this old mile post opposite the old Zeehan post office.
