This is My home town, I spent most of my childhood fishing, swimming, bush walking and working on the family farm. It's such a diverse area with cattle and sheep farms, stone fruit and apple orchards as well as a booming aquaculture industry.

Um, what is that?
This was a creepy chair we had in one of the rooms at the B&B, none of us stayed in that room haha
We stayed at the cutest (maybe a little haunted) B&B in Southport. www.southportjettyhouse.com They made the yummiest breakfast EVER.
| Hastings |
Hastings Caves ( Newdegate cave) is the largest dolomite cave open to tourists in Australia. It's approx 125km south of Hobart and is well worth the drive. Just along the road from the caves is a beautiful swimming pool fed by natural spring water from the thermal springs, the water is always around 28C.
Ida Bay Railway
Once home to a thriving whaling industry
Cockle Creek is the end of the road in Australia, you can't drive any further south. I spent all of my school holidays here when I was younger.
