I seem to have hit a bit of a block with these Tasmania trip photo diaries – putting in the effort to get them out of the way now!
We continued onwards across Tasmania to Launceston, a valley city which was described to us by a bartender in Hobart as “literally a hole”. We didn’t spend much time in the town itself, except to visit local pie shop Tinnies Bakery. Why a pie shop? To sample the Tassie delicacy that is curried scallop pie. I’m not sure I’m completely sold on the idea to be honest free online games pokies, but The Boy was delighted with his and also happily wolfed down half of my Thai green curry pie, which was delicious but far too large for me. We sampled more curried scallop pies across Tasmania, but none compared to Tinnies’.
After a quick stop at Cataract Gorge, which reminded me a lot of Kings Park, we headed out to explore the Tamar Valley wine region. I always end up comparing wine regions to our Margaret River – Tamar Valley is much more green and hilly, and produces beautiful cooler climate reds and whites.
