Despite being a few hours flight from Melbourne and regarded a one of the best stretches of coast in the country, for some reason Byron had yet to appear on our beach list. But having been and come back, I can say now that it is one of those places that makes you realise how lucky we are in this country.

Last weekend we took a short break to the once famous gold rush town of Castlemaine, about an hours drive northwest of Melbourne. For accommodation, we opted to stay the night at the beautiful (yet a little haunting) art deco The Midland B&B.
Fat bumble bees, an abundance of blueberries, plump cherries, turquoise beaches and Battery Point’s quaint streets – it’s safe to say I fell a little bit in love with Tasmania.
Here are just a few more belated snaps from our recent trip to Hobart, Tasmania.
