Here is the final photo of the month by Carol Haberle for this year: Guide Falls in full flow after heavy rain. Tasmania is an island of great diversity with magnificent scenery, which is reflected in Carol’s work ~ Greg Hale Tasmania: Guide Falls in Full Flow As this will be the last article we publish this year, it’s fitting – we think – to feature one of Carol’s photos. Particularly a shot of Guide Falls… sending love and hugs to all Carol’s friends and family. And to everyone who follows Think Tasmania, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and...Read More

We like to mix things up when we’re walking Coco. She doesn’t mind where she walks; she’ll go anywhere we’re prepared to take her. One day, we followed the Classic Urban Parks trail in Hobart. Hobart Trails: Classic Urban Parks The Greater Hobart Trails website suggests loads of interesting walking options. We had planned to complete the entire Classic Urban Parks walk in one stint. But as usual, we stopped so many times to take photos of sculptures and scenery we had to abandon Plan A. Yep, we’ll get back to the second half of the walk another day. Walking...Read More
We had the chance to dine at The Waterfront Hotel in Bellerive on Hobart’s Eastern Shore recently. We hadn’t dined there for AGES because a previous experience wasn’t particularly memorable.

Gavin chose the beef cheeks and was very happy with his dinner. The meat was really...Read More
The spring weather in Tasmania almost hit the 30C mark yesterday. That makes us happy. Think beaches, alfresco dining, cold cider and long twilight evenings. But we may be inclined to stow away our Mongrel Socks for a few months, and that makes us sad. Mongrel Socks: Salamanca Market It’s difficult to choose between groovy colour combinations when selecting Mongrel Socks. I chose pinks and purples (with black highlights) because that’s just me. They are absolutely perfect to wear with long boots. The pure Tasmanian merino wool socks are the warmest ever; “to know them is to love them”....Read More
Looking for something sweet in Hobart? Try Honey Badger Dessert Cafe in Salamanca Square. We made this confession via Instagram: we indulged in a Blonde Panookie. Honey Badger Dessert Cafe What’s a panookie, you may well ask. In this case it’s a chocolate chip and peanut butter cookie baked in a serving pan. Ours came with marshmallow, orange blossom fairy floss, caramel fudge ice cream and salted caramel beads. It was totally delicious, as it sounds and looks! There’s other varieties of panookie on the dessert menu, all sinfully decadent. Someone asked if our photo represented a serving for just one person,...Read More
