From our Group CEO - What's on your Tassie wish list?

My first year in Tasmania has been one I’ll never forget. Our island is like no other, and I’m so grateful my family can call this place home.

As we settled in to Tasmania, my family and I very quickly found our favourites. Heading to Willie Smith’s Apple Shed in the Huon Valley for lunch has become a weekend staple. So has taking to the streets of Hobart – discovering something new and funky around every corner. We couldn’t spend our first winter in Tassie without a trip to Mount Wellington. Seeing my Queensland-born kids play in the snow for the first time was incredibly special.

My 2021 Tassie wish list keeps getting longer.

We’re big walkers in my family, so the Three Capes Track holds the top spot. I fell in love with the Tassie outdoors on the Overland Track many years ago and can’t wait to experience the beautiful, rugged Tasman Peninsula.

I’ve always had a soft spot for a good single malt (…that’s my Scottish heritage talking). Tassie has some of the finest whiskies in the world, so a whisky tasting at Hellyers Road Distillery is definitely in order! The Agrarian Kitchen in the Derwent Valley has been on our list for some time – we’re excited to feast on more of Tassie’s amazing food and produce. We’d also love to take some time to relax in the Tamar Valley and explore more of our northern hub in Launceston.

From my family to yours we wish you a safe and happy new year. What’s on your Tassie wish list for 2021? We’d love to hear what you’ve got planned. Let us know in our Member Hub.
