Safari Bus Tour Takes the Trophy!

The Tasmanian Safari Bus Tour belongs to the ZooDoo Wildlife Park, which is 6km from the historical township of Richmond, Tasmania.  Forget historical; more like hysterical when you land at this attraction! ZooDoo Wildlife Park: Safari Bus Tour Before we get to the Safari Bus Tour, we must admit, the wildlife park does look a little tired (just like the Tasmanian Devil pictured below!).  Several exhibits are bare, including the miniature pony-racing arena.  And for the $56 family ticket, adults would probably expect the weeds to be removed and all the rides to be in fully functioning order. That...

Huon Valley: Core of Apple Isle!

Huon Valley: Apple of the Island’s Eye! Think Huon Valley when you want one Tasmanian region to encompass the whole perfect image. The apple capital of the Apple Isle.  Scenic drives in every direction and a majestic river and mountain setting. What and Where is the Huon Valley? About 40 minutes drive from Hobart into south east Tasmania, and you will arrive at the region known as the Huon Valley.  You’ll be tempted by an amazing assortment of fresh apples, some even uniquely Tasmanian.  Proudly advertised with makeshift signs, the roadside stalls implement honesty systems where you take the...

Geeveston: Wood You Like It?

Geeveston and Forestry Tasmania Geeveston is a bloke’s town.  Not renowned as a classical beauty in Tasmania, it’s all about forestry, outdoor ruggedness… and wood. Geeveston, Huon Valley and Southern Forests Part of the Huon Valley region in south east Tasmania, if you want dainty and pretty, The Gateway to the Southern Forests is NOT for you. But if you own some thick boots and a fog-retardant jacket, and you are willing to take the off-chance that you might see a platypus in the town’s creek, pencil this town into the Tasmanian trip. Forestry Tasmania Festival In March, Geeveston...

Devonport: That’s the Spirit!

Arriving in Devonport Tasmania Devonport, a coastal shipping port in Tasmania’s north, offers up a surprise or two. Devonport and the Spirit of Tasmania My first encounter was very fleeting:  arriving on the Spirit of Tasmania in the wee small hours of the morning before exiting via the main highway towards Launceston, about an hour’s drive away.  The town was still in darkness and the inside of the quarantine station was about the extent of any sightseeing. In my defence, there was  a pressing engagement at a house sit  at Geeveston in the Huon Valley, (so the other end...

Salamanca Market: Hobart Treasure Hunt!

Saturday: Visit Salamanca Market, Hobart The Salamanca Market: there wouldn’t be a Tourism Tasmania brochure that doesn’t suggest it, and with good reason.  It’s just one of those essential holiday attractions when you visit the island state. Salamanca Market: a Favourite! This particular market is the sort that locals visit much more than just once.  I’ve been several times, and will definitely continue to visit regularly.  The buskers rotate appearances and performances, giving patrons a unique entertainment experience each time. There is an alley specifically for locally-produced goods, but with more stall-holders than places available, sometimes the casual retailers rotate. ...
