Hooley Dooley. Sorry for the inexpiable lapse in communication folks...it's been a relentlessly chaotic (& prodigious) start to the new year!
In honour of my recent travels, I thought I'd kick things off with a mini-guide to Hobart, Tasmania. Just a 50 minute flight from the mainland, Australia's island state capital city is a quaint, cultural blend of painterly landscapes, locavore-friendly eateries & early settler architecture. And it's fair to say my (close-second) favourite city. The closet archaeologist & neophyte farmer within me could easily call Tasmania home...
Just outside the CBD, landlubbers will be charmed by the cobbled bluestone streets & rambling Georgian cottages of Battery Point. Buccaneers & salty sea dogs alike will similarly be captivated by the nearby barnacle clad pylons of heritage listed Salamanca Wharf.
There's plenty of goodness for hungry sightseers looking for homegrown nosh & alcoholic elixirs too! Where are your favourite hangs in Hobart?
