Amid the covid lockdowns in several states of Australia , we in Queensland are fairly safe so we are permitted to enter Tasmania. At the moment!
We are heading to the island state of Tasmania to visit friends Ginetta & Stephen. They moved there about 5 years ago and love it.
After spending last year in France & Italy dodging covid they are back in covid safe little Tasmania.
We plan to fly into Hobart, spend a day or so there before heading to Bicheno and then progressing in an anti clockwise direction around the island.
We were meant to be driving our MG all the way down. Through NSW, Victoria onto the car ferry and arrive in Devonport. But those states are closed so w we are flying.
Tasmania is beautiful. It’s cold, clean and has great food and wine. So follow on for some armchair travel.

I look forward to hearing about your Tasmanian travels,Fran. That island has always seemed mysterious to me. Met a Swimtrekker on holiday who worked as a doctor there. He loves the place!
Good luck – hope it goes smoothly and you have a wonderful time. x M
Good morning Fran . My comment couldn’t or wouldn’t send so just wishing you a wonderful trip. We’ve travelled to Tasmania a number of times including one trip we drove right round anticlockwise from Launceston and back . So much to see and do. Safe travels. Annette X

Thanks Annette. We made it in. No problem. Looking forward to our time here.
Exciting! Too bad about not being able to take the MG. If you get to Grindelwild, a Lodi boy, Justin Turner, has Turner Stillhouse (distillery). He married a Tassie. Lisa worked with his Mom in the ICU for years. https://turnerstillhouse.com/stillhouse/story/ Looking forward to your Tassie Tales.
Thanks John. We might be close to there so we’ll check it out if we can.
Sorry we won’t be seeing you on the far south coast.
Us too Jan. We had hoped but no such luck.
Have a fabulous time, Fran… as you know, I L💜VE Tassie. Love to The gorgeous Ginetta. Bx🤩
