Photobomb! This plush little kookaburra is eating his way around Discover Tasmania and was recently caught eyeing off some local oysters from Hursey Seafoods in Stanley! I hope he shared, but I heard on good authority they were incredibly delicious!

Just soak up that view. This is the incredibly enticing blue waters of the Western Inlet, just to the south of Stanley.

Thanks Osborne Heli Tours for sharing your adventures with us!

What better way to spend a weekend than walking among beautiful flowers in the most beautiful part of the world?! The Wisteria are in full bloom at the Kaydale Lodge Gardens so be sure to check them out when you're in the neighbourhood!

Great time to be travelling in the North West as it's Poppy time in Tassie and our fields are bursting with pastel hues!
Fun Fact, Tasmania's opium poppy industry supplies around half of the worlds supply of opiate straw, that is refined to produce medicines.

Our beautiful cover photo for December features the incredible capture of Cradle Mountain with a dusting of snow and a twinkling starry night!
