Why is it that some towns attract the attention of Think Tasmania writers more than others? Take the town of Latrobe in the state’s north west coast region, for example. We’ve written so many articles about business owners from that area, with many more still on the “potential” list. Maybe it’s opportunity. Maybe it’s good communication from the business owners to Think Tasmania. Or maybe… the town of Latrobe is just worthy of attention!
Town of Latrobe: A Tasmanian Favourite
Here at Think Tasmania, we don’t pretend to be a directory, listing all and sundry. There’s plenty of others who do that; the phone number and website of a business is easy enough to find if you know where to look. What we aim to provide is this: details of impartial, first-hand experiences (only the good ones, mind you!). We give our readers a reason to visit somewhere themselves.
Here’s a sample of our thoughts about the town of Latrobe so far. Hopefully we’ve inspired locals and visitors to take a look at some of these places and meet some of these people….
La Dolce Vita ~ a new cafe near Station Square, offering light lunches, coffee and snacks, with specialty cakes and catering by Demelza Harkness.
By the Brooke ~ an upholstery, furniture and home-wares store, also in Latrobe.
The Cherry Shed ~ a well-known and popular spot on the gourmet food trail, a place to lunch and indulge in a multitude of cherry flavours.
Lorraine McNeair ~ one of our regular contributors is also a volunteer at the Information Centre; no doubt one reason we have so many stories about Latrobe.
