Today I took a lovely couple from California on tour off a Cruise Ship in Burnie and their main destination was the Tarkinewildernesslodge where they were meeting Maree for a short Guided tour. Thanks Maree for making their day very special by encouraging a few of your rehabilitated wallaby and pademelon friends to come out and say Hi....They thoroughly enjoyed their morning with you and loved the Lodge. This is a special part of Tasmania at the edge of theTarkine and a must see or stay for all. We made our way back to Burnie with a few short stops before they left later that afternoon.Happy sailing and maybe one day you will be back to enjoy that Lodge! This is a great Cruise Ship Shore tour from Burnie.

They thoroughly enjoyed their time up here and I wish you all the best for your future travels ...it's been a pleasure!....

Tonight I said farewell to my lovely guests visiting from Innisfail in Qld and they had certainly experienced the taste of "weather" in Tasmania on the end of their last day of a 5 Day Tour in Spring.

Today was the last day of a 4 day private tour for my lovely Guests from Hong Kong. It was a day for learning for Vick as they taught me about PokemonGo...surprising everyone we met along the way. The first one Spearow at the Huontrail visitors centre.......Apart from Pokemon lessons they braved it as we ventured up to Mt Wellington, but alas the weather changed dramatically. They warmed up as the day went along with a few tastings here and there of our wonderful wine and cider. I wish them all the best and more laughter in their next adventure in the Northern Territory!. It has been a pleasure...safe and happy travels!
