Roz MacAllen brought the Kiss a Fish Cookery School to Triabunna for Seafest last weekend. And Think Tasmania was lucky enough to join the class for some outstanding lessons in seafood preparation.

“We think Wild Thing Adventures is the most fun you can have in 60 minutes!” That’s the claim made on the operator’s website for this tour, which departs from Brooke Street Pier in Hobart.
