Last week we spoke about Christmas presents. We offered awesome prizes from Eagles Nest Retreat; World of Marbles and Fudge n Good Coffee in Sheffield. And now, we’re heading over to celebrate the New Year in Launceston and we have yet another present to give away to one lucky Think Tasmania reader.

New Year in Launceston: A Ticket to Celebrate

You might remember last year we published an article by guest author Louise Clark. She wrote about a community event staged at Royal Park, where people could celebrate the New Year in Launceston. Then our colleague and tourism photographer Dan Fellow went along on the night to capture all the fun and festivities of New Year on Royal. Well this year, we’d like our readers to enjoy what’s on offer; and we’re giving you a chance to win tickets here.
