This month’s Tasmania letter
I read with interest your recent correspondence from a Tasmanian speaking up for the ‘Apple Isle’. Following a visit to my uncle, (an original ‘ten pound pom’) in 1991 I fell in love with the place and have returned four times, usually only spending as much time on the ‘other island’ as it takes to change planes.
It really is a heaven for walkers. Travel an hour from Hobart, its chic capital nestled under Mount Wellington, and you could be walking on deserted golden beaches, through ancient forests or strolling along meandering rivers. Add to this the abundant wildlife, together with beautiful colonial architecture steeped in history and you will feel you are in paradise.
