A few ideas for Tasmania
OK i know I’ve been way lazy recently with my blogs. Busy times = less blogging, and apologies to my regular followers. But fear not, the blogs are making a comeback.
I have just returned home from a long weekend in Tasmania… a place I had not visited since my high school days in the early noughties. And I was very impressed with what I saw and did.
So I thought I would just write a few of my recommendations down to kick start my blog rennaissance.
For the arty farty ones: If you are in any way shape or form interested in arts, then the MONA gallery is an absolute must see! Not only has it revolutionised the way that a gallery is experienced (via its high-tech individualised iphone style guides), but the design of the space and the artwork is simply amazing! Arguably the best gallery I have ever been to. Certainly up there with the likes of a MOMA (NYC) or Louvre (Paris). It has its very own style and the artwork of great stature.
For the thrillseekers: The Port Arthur Ghost Tour is really an awesome experience. My hot tip, head to port arthur for the ghost tour, and in doing so, save yourself a good amount of money $20/$30 on entry fees into the site. If you go just before the tour starts (about an hour or so) you will be granted entry onto the site to have a look around, and you will also be able to do to the ghost tour. The tour is HALF the price of a standard daytime entry, so you can pay for a nice dinner back in hobart! THe ghost tour itself was a good 90 minute of goosebump creating fun. If you are into the mystical, then it’s well worth your visit. There are over 2000 reported “paranormal experiences” from ghost tours over the past 20 odd years. And THe guide told us that as recently as 6 weeks ago, there was a “sighting” of a famed ghost on site.
For the eaters: The MONA cafe provides an exquisite range of spreads and vinos to suit many palettes. Do yourself a favour and get into the food here! If you are planning on checking out the famed cadbury factory, make sure you visit during the week so that you can take part in the tour!
So people, get down to Tasmania, in one of the far corners of the globe. It really is a beautiful spot to visit.
