Tasmania, oh so relaxing.

Yes yes, coming from the mainland of Australia Tasmania has always been the butt of many jokes about inbreds etc.

Over new years I went down to Tassie with my boyfriend, as he grew up in far north west Tassie.

Here’s a map of Tassie, and I have labelled the places we stayed:

Falls Festival in Tassie is so much more enjoyable than Lorne in Victoria, as it overlooks Marion Bay and is much less crowded. There is also no horrible camping spots like Lorne, where if you’re super unlucky you can end up camping on a 45 degree angle. If you’re lucky it’s only a slight slope.

My wonderful friends…

Highlights of the festival were…

Karen O is such a babe

After Falls, we stayed in Hobart with my boyfriends sister for a few days, then went tripping around Tassie – up along the east coast, then the north to the north west.


On the way to St Helens:

Fishing for the first time ever…

Whilst driving from St Helens we discovered Halls Falls, so beautiful.

Charlie and his sister at Hobart International Airport, ha ha, I don’t think many (if any) international flights go through there.

There are definitely benefits to Tassie being off the main land – it is so relaxing and I really recharged myself during those 10 days.
