Ok well not cycling ALL the way, that would be impossible as you’ll see in a bit. It was late on Monday evening when Mo texted me to see if I fancied doing Cathedral Rock the next day. Being Christmas and living with a man who reviews beers I had already had a few interesting … More Cycling to Cathedral Rock
First and foremost, a very Merry Christmas to all of you! Hope you’re all having a most wonderful Christmas wherever you are. Christmas Eve for me, has typically involved being in work, oh the joys of retail and hospitality. This year with the new job however I found myself free on the 24th and sure, … More A Cape Hauy Christmas
Been a while since I last posted a blog right? Apologies for that, been a busy few months. Started a new job at the University which has been keeping me nice and busy. Now back to business! It’s also been a while since I attended an Instameet and I think some of us were starting … More Southern Trove Instameet
It was our first evening on Maria and we had been at the mess hall in Darlington, making dinner and playing table tennis. As we got closer to our tents we saw a possum sitting outside Mo’s tent, munching on a bit of bread. “Where’d he get that bread from?” we asked each other. The … More Maria Island camping trip

The epicentre of Dark Park is either at the Winter Feast or at Dark Park (depending on your hunger levels). Dark Park takes over an abandoned industrial area near the port each year and features some of the festivals best exhibits. This year’s Dark Park expanded massively on last year’s efforts with a sprawling site … More Hello darkness my old friend: Dark Park 2016
It has flown by in a whirlwind of light and warmth in the midst of Winter. I can’t believe I’m writing this blog post after the end of Dark Mofo as it felt like it had only just begun but I guess that’s the sign of a good festival when you feel it’s over too … More Dark Mofo 2016: Willow Court Asylum
I know I say this after every one but the peeps at Hobart & Beyond and Discover Tasmania have outdone themselves yet again with another amazing Instameet. They just keep getting better and better with even more things to see and photograph, even more new people to meet and hang out with and even more … More Tasman Peninsula Instameet
I barely know where to start with this post. I could write a big long winded description of where we went and what we did. I could describe how to get there, where to stay and highlights along the way but this time I think I’ll just let the photos do the explaining and add … More Binalong Bay and beyond.
