10 Reasons to Make the Move to Tassie

Wine Glass BayIn less than two months of being in Tassie, I have found at least 10 beautiful reasons for being here. 

  1. It’s a gobsmackingly gorgeous place to be – think Wineglass Bay, Cradle Mountain,
  2. The Tarkine and pristine wilderness – lakes, mountains, forests, beaches. We have it all.
  3. The “natives” are friendly, helpful and generous people.
  4. There is not a lot of traffic – even in capital city Hobart’s “rush hour”.
  5. There are four distinct seasons in each year and sometimes in one day!
  6. The local produce is fresh and fabulous – stone fruit, berries, walnuts, salmon, oysters, cheese. Check out Bream Creek Farmers Markets.
  7. Some of the best whiskies in the world are made here – Lark, Nant, Sullivans Cove and more.
  8. The air is fresh (straight off the Antarctic fresh!) and there is little pollution.
  9. More artists, writers and cultural creatives per head of population live and work in Tasmania than anywhere else in Australia.
  10. David Walsh’s spectacular and controversial Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) is here on the banks of the majestic Derwent River.
  11. As Tourism Tasmania promote, we are “A world apart, not a world away” and Melbourne is only an hour’s flying time from Hobart (less from Launceston) if you need a Big City fix.
