Review - Cygnet Hotel
By Kylie Jane Degeling

TakeABreak Awards 2009 Winner, Hotel and Motel Accommodation: Cygnet Hotel The historic Cygnet Hotel has two important accomplishments to celebrate. The first – reaching its 100th year of service in the pretty town of Cygnet which is nestled in the Huon Valley. The second is being chosen as the winner of the Hotel and Motel Holiday Accommodation category of TakeABreak Awards 2009! Building of this heritage-listed hotel began in 1907 and was completed in 1910. However, you won’t find one hundred years of dust and decay in this place; recent owners John and Helen have been busy with restoration projects to ensure this beauty easily wins awards for the next hundred years. Each room is clean, cosy, loaded with character, and lovingly cared for by friendly staff. With seven H... Read more

Huon Valley and d’Entrecasteaux Channel
By Kylie Jane Degeling

Have you ever watched a movie – probably a period romance or nostalgic film – and thought to yourself, “Places like this don’t really exist!”? You know – where everything seems utterly perfect…lovely rolling hills, calm waters, flowers and trees everywhere, and a sense that the locals are truly content. It’s not possible, right? A place where there is no hustle or bustle, where people take the time to laugh together, to savour good food and wine, and locals practise fly fishing, not caring too much if the fish choose to bite. The good news is – such a place really does still exist, and it’s in the southern part of Tasmania.   When you arrive in the region, which is home to the Huon Valley and the famous d’Entrecast...

Top Five Accessible Travel Destinations
By Bruce Mumford

When you’re disabled it’s a lot easier - and cheaper - to stay at home. But after our family came home from a trip away, I realised the memories would be there with our boys for the rest of their lives.  It’s certainly not easy (when you’re disabled what is?) but it is worth it. My favourite Australian  destinations are: 1.

The terrific thing about Darling Harbour is that it’s so much like Tasmania; a lot to do in such a sm... Read more
