I want to wake up more mornings and feel like pinching myself. The sleep-deprived, hectic workday mornings back home make this one, waking up in a new city in a faraway place, feel that much more sweet. Still sleep-deprived, sure, but wide-eyed and filled with the smell of new air and new sights fueling my every step. I want to have more days where I can't stop whispering to myself, "I can't believe that I'm here." Today was one of those days (!)
If you've been following along on Stories, I touched down in Tasmania last night - the southernmost inhabited region in Australia, and one of the closest cities in the world to Antarctica. Beautiful, remote, and COLD 😅 (and this is 'summer' here!). Can't wait to spend a few days packing in as much as I possibly can and sharing it with all of you! #OffDutyInAussie#SeeAustralia#hobartandbeyond#DiscoverTasmania#TassieStyle

One of my favourites from Open House Hobart @oh_hobart last weekend.
I’m always fascinated by the catharsis of simple lines, curves and form. Truly an incredible example of modernist principles and beauty!
Thank you for all the well wishes and kind messages! My birthday this year has been nothing short of a hoot; filled with fun, frivolity and fabulous memories that I will cherish forever. A special shout out to @dimmym for spoiling me rotten and coordinating a day of surprises. Love you all 😘🍸💫
Big thank you to @macq01@hobartandbeyond@instameets_tasmania and of course our Master Storyteller Justin Johnstone Smith.
Today I had the pleasure of being invited to experience a tour with a difference. 'Hobart Town Reseen', aka 'Hidden Hobart' is a storytelling tour of Hobart complemented by the use of retro viewfinders with photographs of yesteryear. Our tour today was hosted by the enthralling Master Storyteller, Justin Johnstone Smith, who did an unbelievable job of keeping us all entertained and educated as we explored the streets of Hobart, listening to the stories of Hobart's history. "Explorers and sailors, whorers and whalers. Be warned, these stories are not all triumphs. Some are unexpected, others untold, and some downright dreadful…."
After the tour we were treated to some amazing food and cocktails at MACq 01's Story Bar.

We've decided it's probably best to close for the long anticipated move back to our original store!! So, we'll be closed TUESDAY 20th November- reopening Wednesday, apologies for any inconvenience. We are so excited, so many new beautiful things to show you 🧡💛💚🙌
Day Two: With the right gear and no more gusty wind and hail, the 2nd day was much better. The landscape changed drastically when we descended below the snow line to the rainforests and moorlands. It also felt more like spring as we progressed through the day with sporadic rain and slightly warmer temps. #cradlemountain#springintasmania#bestholidays#taswalkingco#discovertasmania
Day One: We signed up for the Overland Track in Nov for spring weather, and ended up with snow showers, hail and strong winds while traversing through the hardest, steepest and most exposed section of the walk. Talk about being put through the wringer on the very first day. Not too many pics taken today because it was just too difficult to do so. #cradlemountain#springintasmania#bestholidays? #taswalkingco#discovertasmania

Finished our 6-day Cradle Mountain Overland Track with @taswalkingco yesterday; a challenging and amazing experience which at times took us utterly out of our comfort zone. I will be sharing more pictures later, but the first order of the day has to be one of the key highlights of the hike, ie. sighting these cute marsupial animals native to Australia - a wombat. #cradlemountain#springintasmania#bestholidays#discovertasmania
When's the last time you played peek-a-boo with a wombat? @dobeshots met this handsome fellow on the @EastCoastTasmania's Maria Island National Park. The island sanctuary lies 6 kilometres off the coast, and is home to remarkable history, incredible coastal landscapes, ridiculously pristine bays and beaches... And wombats! (And Tassie devils, and Cape Barren geese, and Forester kangaroos...) 🐾📸🍃 Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Deborah!

Twisted Lakes turning it on one morning earlier this year, I started walking in the early hours of the morning from the car park to arrive here just after sunrise, I had no plan on where I would see the sun rise and I really enjoyed not knowing what to expect when I got here either, to my surprise the whole lake was completely frozen over! First time seeing a lake fully frozen. Fair to say I was ecstatic 🤭
Walking the road less clear
The mountain throws out all kinds of unexpected gems. When the sunrise was clouded out the other day it was worth getting a bit creative.
Thanks to @carmelboyd_ for donating her middle of the road walking skills.
