The Huon has some of the best farmed salmon in the world. My local farm has the most amazing hot smoked salmon you will ever taste. www.huonaqua.com.au

Esperance Bay

Dover

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.

Adamsons Peak

Rain Forrest

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 Caves

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

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.

2 chefs and an abundance of fresh seafood in Recherche Bay and all we could manage for lunch was some salad and crackers haha
