We are 'new' Taswegians, having moved here is September 2013. Both journalists by trade, and I am a photographer as well (hoping to catch the mysterious and beautiful aurora one day soon!) and we love the lifestyle and location.
One of the factors which influenced us to buy our cottage at Glenorchy was the cabin in the garden. Originally I planned to offer it to photographer friends as a cheap accommodation alternative for their visits, but someone mentioned aribnb and here we are.
Our offering is strictly a budget offering, but private and comfortable.
We have a love of good food, wine and lifestyle, and can direct you to provedores, wineries and interesting places like the State Theatre, MONA and Tasmania's great attractions. We've included many of these in our Guidebook and we hope you find it useful. And Tasmania's food festivals, such as Taste, Taste of Huon and many others are a gastronome's delight.
Tasmania is also photographer's paradise, and combining your trip with one of Tassie's many festivals, such as the bi-yearly Wooden Boat festivals, can give you a wealth of opportunities for that special shot. And no where else in Australia has such good viewing for the Aurora Australis, the magical southern lights. You might be lucky during YOUR stay with us!
We love meeting new people from all over the world and look forward to making new friends among our guests.
(Note our 5 cats and the rabbit do not go in the cabin and are all inside pets, so allergy sufferers should be OK.)
