If there’s one thing I’d recommend more than anything people do when visiting Tasmania, it’s a Pennicott Wilderness Journey. Having previously been on the Bruny Island version of their boat trips, I was excited to see what their Tasman Island edition would be like. Gemma had previously mentioned that she’d never been on one, so I … More Whale Whale what do we have here?
It’s been almost two years since I first set foot on Tasmanian soil. I’ve had the immense privilege of seeing some of this island’s most picturesque and beautiful sights. Putting a top 10 together has not been easy as it means omitting a place that is no less amazing than those featured here. The scariest … More My top 10 sights in Tasmania (so far)
Been a while since I last posted a blog right? Apologies for that, been a busy few months. Started a new job at the University which has been keeping me nice and busy. Now back to business! It’s also been a while since I attended an Instameet and I think some of us were starting … More Southern Trove Instameet
I finally got a chance to check out the action and festivities at the Royal Hobart Regatta yesterday and it certainly didn’t disappoint, a great day out for all the family. The Royal Hobart Regatta began in 1838 and consists of a series of aquatic competitions and displays held annually ever since making it Tasmania’s oldest sporting … More Royal Hobart Regatta 2016
We had the pleasure of staying in Melbourne for Christmas last year (still not quite used to saying that this early in 2016) and part of our trip involved a trip to Werribee Open Range Zoo, located 35km outside the city centre. It’s quite similar in a way to a zoo we visited in the … More Werribee Open Range Zoo: An African Adventure
We had our first opportunity to explore mainland Australia two weeks ago when we took a quick trip to Sydney to spend the weekend with friends. Given the size of Sydney as a major metropolitan area, a weekend is simply not going to cut it when it comes to seeing everything there is to see. … More A weekend in Sydney
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. The space has been lovingly converted into self-contained accommodation with tasteful touches and … More Far South Instameet: Trains, caves and a nice cup of tea.
You know your city is popular with tourists when it has its own sightseeing bus and being popular with tourists is most definitely something you can say about Hobart. For another recent Instameet we had the pleasure of being tourists for a day and seeing the sights of Hobart from the Red Decker Bus. We … More Hobart Red Decker Tour
We’ve been in Tasmania more than a month now and have yet to do the number one attraction in Hobart….climb Mount Wellington, or kunanyi as it’s known in the Aboriginal language. The mountain towers over Hobart and as I write this is coated in a beautiful layer of snow which only adds to its majesty. … More The foothills of kunanyi
Them bones, them bones need…..their picture taken…..money thrown at them…..a light dusting. I finally got round to visiting the beautiful town of Kutna Hora on Tuesday when we had a bank holiday in the Czech Republic. It seems to be one of the few places that a lot of my colleagues in work visit and … More Sedlec Ossuary
