Tasmania

It is said that
"the shortest route between two points is a straight line". 
This does not apply in Tasmania.  But what you see on the way is well worth the drive.

There are a few terms that one could describe Tasmania.  Time capsule, unimaginable beauty, old but new, our last frontier, for the adventure and the culture.  We could go on forever.  Extremes in weather, isolation and experiences are what we can expect when touring this amazing island state.  The available history dating back to our earliest European days, as well as the Aboriginal culture and history.  All a fascinating experience and learning curve.  On the mainland, our much of our tangable history has been covered with "progress" bulldozed into nothingness, where as in Tassie, the culture has been to preserve, showcase and teach.  What has been achieved, is a tourism success that will leave the guest wondering why we have been kept in the dark about this gem.  But Tassie is not just history.  Tassie is a centre for a great food and wine experience.  With a number of conventional wineries and vineyards catering for all tastes.  Then lets mention the non conventional.  Cherry wines, strawberry wines, other berry wines just for a start.  Small family owned cheese works like Pyengana with their unmanned dairy that supplies the milk for all their cheeses.  Spend some time watching this work is an experience in itself.  The various family owned chocolate manufacturers.

Even the free attractions are can display the depth of talent with the figures cut from dead or dying tree using just a chainsaw.  Let your imagination run wild with the diversity of talent, skills and entertainment shown by locals.

Speaking of locals, our experience of touring Tassie enlightened us to the warmth, hospitality and well meaning of everyday Tasmanians.  Not just those in the tourism and service industries, but locals, just like you and me.
