I’ve been living in Tasmania for over two years now and have seen some incredible places, truly amazing sights that have made me pinch myself just to check if I’m awake and aren’t living in some dream world. They’ve all been in the South of Tassie though, I’ve neglected the North of this great island … More Northwest Tasmania Roadtrip
I just realised I never uploaded a post from that wonderful trip I took with my parents just before moving to Tasmania, you know…..back in March 2015!! Whoops!

These Instameets keep getting better and better! For our latest adventure we headed to the south of Tasmania. Our first port of call was the exceedingly delightful Chapel Lane Hall, a former church with over 100 years of history under its roof.

As a result I completely missed a whole section of TMAG, the Bond Store Gallery. It is located within the old Bond Store which was built in the … More TMAG: Bond Store Gallery
On Saturday I had the immense pleasure of attending an Instameet in the Huon Valley. What’s an Instameet I hear you ask. Essentially it’s a social gathering of Instagram users who get together to document a particular location or event and get to know one another in the process. I was very pleasantly surprised to … More Nice to Instameet you: A trip aboard the Yukon
Another weekend and yet another awesome adventure in Tasmania.

Every major town or city has a museum or art gallery, some lucky ones have several but what they all have in common is an appreciation for history, for art and for culture. Rather than having people walk from one building to the other, Hobart decided to put the two together in one, a buy … More Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG)
