Issue Fifteen

There are some things we really love over here at TG.

We love mountains, and have a mountaineering memoir from the former head of the Tas Uni Bushwalking Club. A Queenslander sailor turned Norwegian skier, Angus Munro spent several years tramping around Tasmania’s peaks, and we are very glad to share his photos with you!

We love Citizen Science.We like to support Citizen Science projects whenever and however possible, so do take a look at the Wellington Park Management Authority’s call for platypus sightings. If you’re on the mountain above Hobart, keep a sharp eye out for these marvellous and curious animals.

We love macropods! Rootourism helps us fill out our online field guide to the major marsupials of Tasmania- check out their info sheet on the Pademelon.

And we love fine music. So, to wrap up the issue, there’s Steve Gadd and friends with the photo-illustrated fiddle song, Far From Home.

We’ll be having a play with Pinterest this upcoming week. Do you use this social network? Let us know any ideas or comments!
