November 2022: John Gibb lead an acrylic seascapes art retreat at Tin Dragon Cottages. As part of the retreat, the art students immersed themselves in the beauty of the Bay of Fires. This developed a better appreciation for their seascapes subject. On the final day there were smiles all round, as students proudly showed off their near-to-complete works of art!
Off the Beaten Track in Tasmania
Here you can read about our family adventures off the beaten track into the most amazing places in Tasmania. We hope to inspire you. If we can drive, ride or walk into these places - then so can you!
We have visited the Cradle Mountain - Lake St Clair National Park, Mount William National Park and tackled the Three Capes Walk, Overland Track and Frenchans Cap to just name a few. Of course, we also share with you many of lesser-known natural wonders of North East Tasmania, too.
The track to the summit of Mount Stronach is not really spectacular. But this is a great little walk if you have a few hours, want to get your heart rate up and be rewarded with views out to the ocean.
On a quiet Autumn day in April we packed our lunch and headed for Halls Falls. This a perfect short drive from Tin Dragon Cottages when you need a few hours of forest bathing! It’s a beautiful drive, too.
This is our family’s experience of walking the 65km Tasmanian Overland Track from Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clair.
After unusually good rainfall this summer, we decided to revisit Meadstone Falls. The deep upstream rock pools make this an inviting destination on a hot summer’s day!
