Facebook Timeline Cover Photos: Really?

Facebook Timeline Cover Photos? What? Don’t worry! We’re not about to convert Think Tasmania to a social media “how to” website. There’s lots of experts who can (and do) explain the ins and outs of every platform imaginable along with all the complicated whizz-bang apps and add-ons. That’s not our scene. Our forte is delivering regular and consistent online content. Articles, links, photos, etc. We keep things relevant, simple and on topic. Which brings me back to today’s topic: Facebook Timeline Cover Photos. Do you remember Jemima? She’s been busy studying, but she popped in recently to give Think...

Oatlands: What's in a Name?

Oatlands? Maybe the historic town in central Tasmania should have been named Wheatlands?  Why? Well, the focal point of the town is Callington Mill… a mill for grinding wheat into flour. But maybe I’m just showing my ignorance of farming, and should stick to writing about the features of the town! Oatlands – About the Town Located midway between Hobart and Launceston, this town is home to almost 500 lucky Tasmanians.  I say lucky because the midlands area of the island, with the Heritage Highway running through the middle, is a very picturesque part of the state. It’s the...

You'll Fall for Mt Field National Park!

When do you Think Mt Field National Park? Think Mt Field National Park when you want the full spectrum of an outdoor Tasmanian adventure in one convenient location! Russell Falls… and more! Waterfalls are the pivotal focus of this Tasmanian icon, particularly Russell Falls.  On the day of my visit, there was a mountain-load (excuse the pun!) of melted snow flooding over the face of rock opposite the platforms.  In fact, it was difficult to protect the camera from the sheer volume of water. Only a little further up the gentle incline and you come to Horseshoe Falls –...

Mount Wellington: Hike, Ride or Drive?

Mount Wellington, Tasmania and sightseeing all go hand in hand.  If you only schedule one day in Hobart (that would be crazy I know, but if you could seriously only spare one day), what is the premier attraction?  Travel to Hobart and you have to go to the mountain… Mount Wellington that is… Hobart's dominant natural feature and backdrop to the whole city. It's a great place for interstate visitors to venture, and the locals love to show it off.  And this is no once-off attraction:  it's free to visit, offers a myriad of experiences subject to weather conditions,...

Not Bay of Fires, Please Don't Make Me!

Travel to the Bay of Fires for Research? Tough!! Bay of Fires Tasmania: arriving at St Helens, you are offered terrific service facilities for a town of 5,000 locals, with a fishing fleet and a pleasant location.  My local source (the check-out operator at the supermarket), informed me the population more than doubles in the summer, when tourists flock to the area for the love of a good beach.  Must say at this point, however, that the only flock on this particular day was of the feathered variety. Bay of Fires: Hot Topic St Helens, in northeast Tasmania, has...
