Lately, we’ve been sharing a lot of information about west coast Tasmania, and Queenstown in particular. When you throw in a side-serve of St Helens from the north east, we could be accused of neglecting Hobart in southern Tasmania. In fact, we have been called west-coast-obsessed by one reader, who demanded more inclusion of the “star attraction”. We do try to deliver what’s requested, even if it’s not requested very politely! So today we’ll feature the lovely surrounds of the Tasmanian capital city. We hope you enjoy.
Think Southern Tasmania
photos by David Lamplough
We do have one tiny issue with a subject as broad as “southern Tasmania“. Where do we start, and where do we finish? We tend to write individual articles that focus on a micro-topic, rather than covering a really large scope in one hit. Just one business or specific attraction at a time, for example. So we’ve taken our inspiration for today’s piece from a collection of photos submitted by David Lamplough. It’s interesting to note what’s deemed worthy of inclusion in the itinerary of visitors to Tasmania.
Not long ago, we were asked via social media if we were “sick or on holidays” because apparently we didn’t venture far enough from Hobart, our home town. Oh dear. There’s so much to see and do when considering Hobart and surrounds as a destination, but we do try to toddle off occasionally to discover the joys from the rest of our state.
