Hiking Cradle Mountain, picnics in the sky + gingerbread.

From Melbourne, a road trip to Tasmania is easy, accessible by an enjoyable overnight cruise on the Spirit of Tasmania. I’d been to Tasmania years ago when I joined a musician friend on his tour of the island. We had driven all around and stopped […]

We drove through the barren, craggy plains of the aptly named Tasmanian western wilderness to a small, unassuming fishing village that goes by the name of Strahan (pronounced Strawn). Underneath this quaint exterior however, were all the signs of a booming tourism empire. It seems […]

Launceston is a small, quaint and sleepy town in the north-east of Tasmania. One of my favourite places to visit in Tassie, it is the home of the beautiful Cataract Gorge, a must visit for nature lovers. We took a chairlift from one side of […]
