Tassie oysters declared foodie heaven

Savouring plump fresh Tasmanian oysters straight from the water at Freycinet is officially one of the world’s most divine food experiences. That bible of travel – Lonely Planet – has released this year’s coveted Ultimate Eatlist of top 500 dining experiences, and our oysters make the cut at the number 13 spot. The Ultimate Eatlist authors write: “As an oyster lover you owe yourself a pilgrimage to the bivalve mollusc mecca that is Tasmania. For fans of fresh shellfish the whole East Coast is a dream destination.” Food-writers, bloggers, and The Lonely Planet’s well-travelled staff, all cast votes for the ultimate list of their most memorable foodie experiences. Entries are evaluated on taste, cultural importance, and location ambience. Eating pintxos [bar snacks] in San Sebastian, Spain was voted the ultimate eat, closely followed by a bowl of curry laksa in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur. Sushi in Tokyo rounded out the top three foodie experiences.

Auto museum driving to North Bank

Launceston’s iconic automobile museum is set to drive to an exciting new location. Plans have been unveiled for the National Automobile Museum of Tasmania to move from the Cimitiere Street site, which has been its home for the past two decades. It is relocating to a prime position opposite the Silos Hotel in the new North Bank precinct. Museum board member, Harry Williscroft told The Examiner: “With all the money that the council and government are spending on the [North Bank] park and bridge across the Seaport… I think we are going to be in absolutely the right spot, I cannot think of a better spot to move to.” The museum is moving to make way for the planned UTAS campus at Inveresk. The National Automobile Museum of Tasmania, which has a collection made up of private vehicles, attracts about 24,000 visitors each year.

Wooden boat memories

As the weather heats up, excitement builds ahead of one of the state’s most popular events – the MyState Australian Wooden Boat Festival. And, 2019 festival-goers are being encouraged to record their wooden boat highlights with a new photographic competition on offer. Over the years, Tasmania’s iconic event has produced many memorable moments, and images dating back to the inaugural festival in 1994 are eligible for inclusion in the photographic competition. More than 500 wooden boats will be on display at Hobart’s waterfront for the four-day event, which is held every two years, offering a wealth of magic moments to capture on camera. The Specsavers AWBF Photography Competition is offering $3,000 for the winning photograph, and all finalists’ works will be on display at the Brooke Street Pier. The 2019 MyState Australian Wooden Boat Festival will be held on 8-11 February.

Hobart’s waterfront vision

A large swimming pool jutting into the Derwent River is the focal point of a bold new vision unveiled for Hobart’s waterfront. This would be the centrepiece of an expansive public space which is proposed for the current CSIRO site on Castray Esplanade. It has been mooted that the CSIRO would re-locate to the new Antarctic Precinct at Macquarie Point. The new public space would transform this valuable real estate into a recreational space that pays homage to Tasmania’s maritime connections. As well as providing an ideal focal point to watch the finish of the iconic Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, it is also proposed that the Maritime Museum could be moved here. There would also be a boardwalk along the foreshore, and possibly a small boutique hotel. Tourism Industry Council Tasmania boss, Luke Martin, likens the recreational space to Brisbane’s South Bank or Launceston’s Gorge. He told The Mercury: “We think the concept of a major public activation point like that could become an iconic feature for Hobart. Swimming alongside the Derwent…would be a focal point for the public in the hot times of summer.”

Wave of success

The world’s best big wave surfers are heading to Tasmania, and millions of people will be watching. They will take on the fierce waves of Shipstern Bluff which has been chosen for this year’s Red Bull Cape Fear contest, an event that will be streamed live to an expected global audience of six million people. Twenty of the world’s top surfers – led by Australian legend and three-time world champion Mick Fanning – will tackle Shipstern off the wild southern edge of the Tasman Peninsula. Event Director, Mark Mathews, said: “The mountainous size, power and majestic intensity of Shipstern Bluff matched by 20 fearless big wave surfers has all the ingredients to be a highly viewed surfing event.” The contest has a five-month window which opened on August 1, to ensure the best and biggest waves. Tourism Industry Council Boss, Luke Martin, told The Mercury this level of international exposure was “invaluable” adding: “You need these kind of gem events that come up every so often that have the ability to put Tasmania up in lights as something that’s different and unique.” This will be the first time any competition has been run at the famously wild and isolated surfing location.

Golfing heaven

Golf’s arbiter of where to go, play, and stay – Links Magazine – has singled out two Tasmanian courses in its list of the world’s ‘Top 25 Golfing Islands’. This is the first time that the magazine has ever compiled a list of the best golfing islands and Australia, “the world’s largest land mass”, came in at third spot with special mention made of “the two Tasmanian stunners Barnbougle Dunes and Lost Farm”. Barnbougle is a twenty-hole links golf course on the north east coast. Lost Farm is right next door but a world away with significantly steeper sand dunes. Links Magazine also highlighted the “glittering collection of courses in the Melbourne Sandbelt and Mornington Peninsula”. Great Britain, “with more golf courses than any island on the planet” took out top spot. Second is Ireland where “navigating the winding roads can at times be a challenge, but the journey usually ends at a course with jaw-dropping views".

Great Huon Valley Festival

A new event is ready take over the Huon Valley. The Great Huon Festival will offer an impressive line-up of music, comedy and arts when it kicks off on November 10. Set on the foreshore of the quaint town of Franklin, the musical line-up includes The Wolfe Brothers, The Bad Dad Orchestra and Hannah May. Meantime, Tim Logan and Tracey Cosgrove will bring in the laughs with the rest of the comedy line-up. Artisan stall holders will be offering festival-goers a taste of the Huon. The festival will also feature short tours to nearby attractions, including those of historic interest. This is a family friendly event, and pre-arranged camping is available on site for those wanting to stay for the weekend. The Huon is becoming something of a festival hotspot. Last month’s Mid-Winter Fest attracted large crowds and continues grow from strength to strength.
