Lost soles of Tasmania
On a country road outside of Freycinet you may come across a shoe fence. It’s rumoured that the fence was originally started with sneakers that were left behind at a nearby summer camp. As the years went on, the unclaimed shoe collection grew then other travellers started adding their own kicks to the fence. 
Tell us, would you bring old dirty sneakers along on your travels to leave your footprint in this quirky collection?

Does The Tasmanian Tiger Still Exist?
The Tasmanian Tiger has been thought to be extinct since 1936, but is this really true? Are there actually a few left roaming the Tasmanian wilderness?
Tim the Yowieman set out on the trail of the elusive marsupial, transversing the island state from north to south to see if he could be the first to spy the animal in almost 80 years. To learn what he found on his expedition, read his article on Travel There Next now!

Bay of Fires
Australia recently shared an image captured by Paul Fleming during his latest adventure around Launceston & Tasmania’s east coast with Matt Donovan. 

Taking in the incredible view of the Bay of Fires in @Tasmania with @lovethywalrus. This place has to come pretty darn close to perfection, with bright white squeaky sand, crystal clear blue water and red-orange lichen-encrusted granite boulders. It’s not only beautiful but also peaceful - it’s not unusual here to have the area all to yourself.

Paul Fleming’s Highlights of Cataract Gorge
Tassie local, Paul Fleming teamed up with Matt Donovan on an adventure around Launceston and beyond to the seaside coastal town of Binalong Bay.
The pair started their day at Cataract Gorge in search of breakfast at local favourite, Basin Cafe. After breakfast they ventured to the Victorian gardens on northern side of the gorge where they encountered the beautiful bird shown above. 

 ”Here, amongst the European plantings are a friendly and proud flock of peacocks. These pretty fellas are just as photogenic as the gorge they live in!” - Paul

By lunch they had traveled to the north east of the state for a cheesy snack at Pyengana Dairy Company. After refuelling with a variety of cheeses, Paul and Matt set off for a gentle hike to St Columba Falls Reserve. To round out their day of adventures, they continued their travels onward to Binalong Bay.

Southward Bound with Michelle Crawford & Katie Quinn-Davies

Local Michelle Crawford will be sharing some of the best sights and experiences that Tasmania has to offer with mainlander Katie Quinn-Davies as they embark on the next chapter of the Buddy With A Local campaign.

The duo will be exploring the South of the state, heading to Hobart, Bruny Island and the Huon Valley during the course of their adventures.

Before they started their journey, we sat down with Katie and Michelle to find out what they what they are hoping to see and experience during their travels.

Katie, what are you most looking forward to seeing?

MONA and Bruny Island.

Michelle, what are you most looking forward to showing Katie in Tasmania?

That is such a hard question because I am excited about everything! I’m showing Katie my favourite places and introducing her to my favourite people in Tasmania. But if I had to choose one, perhaps our trip to Bruny Island, I just adore its rugged beauty and isolation and this incredible feeling of calm that overcomes you when you drive off the ferry. My family visit as often as we can and it’s a very special place to me.

Katie, what are you most looking forward to doing in Tasmania?

Meeting all the local food producers and hearing their stories and most importantly, getting the opportunity to document and shoot their produce.

Michelle, what are you most looking forward to doing with Katie during your trip?

I’m such a fan of Katie’s work, I am really looking forward to showing her some of my favourite beautiful places in Tasmania and seeing how she captures them with her camera. To see her view of my world.

Katie, what is that most unexpected thing/place/fact you know about Tasmania?

I know really little or nothing about Tasmania other than every person I know who has been there has said it is stunning. I have a feeling Hobart may remind me a little of Dublin and Tasmania itself a little of Ireland.

Michelle, what is the most unexpected thing/place/fact that visitors may not know about Tasmania?

That Tasmania may look small on the map, but there is so much to see that always takes much longer than you think to see everything.

To follow their journey, take a look at the Instagram feeds of Michelle and Katie.

We will also continue to share their adventures right here on the Magazine.

St Columba Falls
Continuing on their Tassie journey heading east from Launceston, Matt Donovan & Paul Fleming stopped by the majestic St Columba Falls. The cascades of this fall span 90 metres before joining the South Georges River, making it one of the tallest waterfalls in Tasmania. 
After hiking the trails around St Columba Falls you may find yourself parched and ready for a feed. Might we recommend popping into the historic country ‘Pub in the Paddock' at Pyengana. Licensed since 1880, this location is bursting with heritage and local quirk. If their delicious meals, comfortable accommodation, cold beer & friendly locals aren't enough to lure you in, you may be enticed by the opportunity to share a drink with local celebrities, Priscilla the Princess & Pinky the Pig.

Mount Pleasant Radio Telescope Observatory

Grote Reber, an American pioneer of radio astronomy in the 1930s, made Tasmania his home in the 1950s because of its unique location at high magnetic latitude. He settled on the outskirts of Bothwell, a rural town 1 hour north-west of Hobart, and spent the next forty years working in partnership with the university and undertaking world-leading work in radio astronomy.

Liffey Valley & Liffey Falls

Matt Donovan & Paul Fleming recently embarked on a Tassie journey and explored the Northern areas around Launceston. Here’s a couple of the great snaps captured by Matt. 

  • Beautiful homes are scattered throughout the lovely Liffey Valley. This quaint residence is privately owned but the residents warmly encouraged Matt & Paul to explore the property. 
  • Liffey Falls is a popular destination as the scenic waterfalls flow all year round. The trails in this area will lead you to several beautiful waterfalls, each more breathtaking than the previous. It’s a destination that is well worth the one hour drive from Launceston.

Sunrise & Sunset on Binalong Bay

It’s hard to say which shot of Binalong Bay is more stunning, sunrise (top) or sunset (bottom)!? These photos were captured by Paul Fleming & Matt Donovan during their Tassie journey over the weekend. Binalong Bay’s fairy floss skies and crystal blue waters truly make it a sight to behold regardless of if you’re starting or ending your day.
