She now calls the beautiful beaches of Bali home but creative director Lindy Klim says it was her Tasmanian upbringing that helped shape her.
“My time in Tassie produced my most enchanting childhood memories. Summer days that seemed to run on and on. Long hikes through the bush, pulling in nets and crab pots, paddling boats under the vast southern sky and building fires on the beach into the cooling night. Even the local beach had the magical name of Eggs and Bacon Bay.
But in my 18 years of living there, I never got to Cradle Mountain. It was always looming in the distance. Now, having finally hiked it, I can say that it might be my favourite ‘new’ memory. All the familiarity of my childhood – the same smells and the sweeping views – wrapped up in newness. Cradle Mountain has made me feel like a kid again and made me hungry for adventure!”
