We discovered some lovely gardens in Tasmania on a reconnaissance mission recently, with Sally from Herbaceous Tours. We can’t give away too many secrets, because they’re not our secrets to share. We will share Sally’s contact details though (scroll down) so if you’re keen to know more… you know who to ask. Herbaceous Tours: Gardens in Tasmania Shortly following the mission (to discover new gardens in Tasmania to share with her tour passengers) Sally received some REALLY exciting news. Again, it’s not our news to share… but tourists interested in gardens in Tasmania have much reason to follow Herbaceous Tours on...Read More

We “needed” a place for dessert in Hobart and Urban Greek saved the day! Urban Greek: Restaurant Perfection We didn’t have a table reservation at Urban Greek, because it was a last-minute thing. We’d already eaten dinner at another restaurant, and then gone home. Then we decided dessert would be nice, instead of watching Saturday night AFL on TV. So we lobbed into Murray Street, and the staff greeted us (as always) with a smile and exceptional, welcoming service. We could’ve eaten anything from the dessert menu, and next time we’re going to have the profiteroles again, for sure....Read More

Via Think Tasmania on Instagram, we promised details of lunch at Salamanca Inn. So here goes! Cheesecake for Lunch at Salamanca Inn! Life is short, so we’re going to skip straight to the most important thing. Cheesecake! The specials board reveals each current incarnation at this restaurant; we scored lemon cheesecake with white chocolate and watermelon sorbet. We thought that was pretty special, but then we heard the next offering was a “Rich Chocolate Easter-Egg Cheesecake”. OMG. Seriously though, cheesecake may not be the most important thing to everyone. Our lunch at Salamanca Inn did start with some magnificent seafood selections, kinda appropriate...Read More
