Amazing Tasmania - - CONTENTS -

Ev­ery­thing you need to know about sail­ing with Spirit of Tas­ma­nia.

What’s your “se­cret spot” in Tassie?

I love the north-east cor­ner of Tas­ma­nia, in­clud­ing Mount Wil­liam Na­tional Park and the Blue Tier For­est Re­serve, Derby, Bicheno, and Weld­bor­ough. This area has it all – white sandy beaches with oys­ter catch­ers chas­ing the foam left by the last wave, or­ange­flecked gran­ite boul­ders on the beaches, or misty forests hid­ing min­ing relics from Tas­ma­nia’s tin min­ing era.

What do you love most about Tassie?

It’s the re­laxed, laid-back life­style. I’m happy to put on my hik­ing boots and head off into the for­est or just wan­der around the lo­cal mu­se­ums. At the end of the day there is al­ways a nice pub or restau­rant of­fer­ing in­ter­est­ing food made with fresh lo­cal pro­duce.

What is your favourite restau­rant?

I love cray­fish and the best cray­fish I’ve eaten was at the Sea Life Cen­tre in Bicheno.

What makes Tas­ma­nia spe­cial?

Tas­ma­nia is the lit­tle state that can. It’s dis­tinc­tive, orig­i­nal, wild, and nat­u­ral but also beau­ti­fully cul­tured and re­fined.
