Tasmania Holiday Part 2

I'm showcasing the rest of the sites that I captured on my recent Tasmania Holiday. I was super surprised and really elated when I came across the Home Hill Restaurant and Winery. Why is that, you ask? Because my Mum's side of the family actually come from a place called Home Hill in North Queensland and I spent the first 8 years of my life growing up there. I still visit every year  for Christmas. When dining there, I asked the waiter how the owners came up with the name of the winery. He said that they were travelling up north and went through this quaint little town called Home Hill and it reminded them of their home on the hill back here in Tasmania so they decided that, that would be the name of their restaurant and winery. I was very chuffed indeed to here that story. I love my home town.


I took a day trip to drive from Hobart up to Launceston and Davenport to have a look around at some of Tasmania's countryside. Stopped in at the Anvers Confectionery and Chocolate Factory for a coffee and some chocolate tastings. 

Found this cute place called Tasmazia in the Promise Land of Tasmania. It was a really enjoyable and unique experience. Super fun for those with families.

A day in the city for lunch and shopping.

A beautiful central city park in Hobart.

Enjoying Happy Hour at the Cocktail Bar at the Wrestpoint Casino.
