This month’s Tas­ma­nia let­ter

Country Walking Magazine (UK) - - Your View -

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.

Here’s a photo of Wine­glass Bay – if ever you de­cide to send some­one to do a full fea­ture you only have to ask! Tim Ed­g­ley, Ram­sey
