an environment of extraordinary beauty

Thanks largely to the so-called ‘MONA effect’, Tasmania has become THE destination for visitors both from the mainland and also internationally. If you need some suggestions of where to eat and drink, look no further than the lovely people who support Stargazer (on the ‘stockists’ page), or send me an e-mail if you need more tips. Otherwise, here is a very personal list of other places which are on my ‘must dos’.

Farmgate Market Salamanca is the more well known option, but the locals hang out here on Sunday mornings. Make sure you grab a coffee and bagel from Bury Me Standing.
Corinda Boutique Hotel I only just found out about this hidden gem recently and what a discovery! Tucked away in leafy Glebe, this 1870s built family home offers not just bespoke accommodation but also a stunning garden, pop up dinners and jazz evenings in the summer.
Pigeon Whole Bakers We really are spoilt for choice for bakeries in Tasmania and Pigeon Whole is right up there. If you’re looking for a breakfast pastry or a delicious sandwich (I’m a fan of their egg sangas), this is the perfect spot.
Bruny Island For the cheese…and the oysters. Oh, and the crazy whisky place as you get off the ferry.
Three Capes Walk I finally got around to doing this PC (pre-Covid) in February 2020; highly recommend, would do again, 5 *****
Dark MOFO Deliberating about when to come? Do it in the middle of winter so you have an excuse to pull out your woollen jumpers and beanies and enjoy the craziness which is this MONA curated festival of all things music, art, paganism and fire.
kuyanyi/Mt Wellington Sometimes you need to change your perspective on the world and this is the perfect place to do it. I highly recommend getting someone else to drive if you are at all challenged by heights though!
Pumphouse Point I don’t do camping (I know, I know) so this luxurious lodge on the shores of the beautiful Lake St Clair is the perfect treat post vintage when all I want to do is curl up with a book in front of a roaring fire.
