Amazing how much can change in a few months. Our island in the corner of the world is doing alright, all things considered, and we hope it won’t be too long before we can welcome visitors again.
Of course, they say, never waste a good crisis, so we’ve been very busy here at TG Central. Tasmanian Geographic has had its biggest website upgrade yet. Since it was last seriously rebuilt in 2013, the technology has raced ahead and we’ve learned quite a few new tricks. Take a look and we’re sure you’ll find that it’s easier to navigate, a bit prettier on the eye, loads faster, and of course has many wonderful new articles to discover.
There’s also the guidebook to Tasmanian Giant Trees finally getting towards its later stages – contact us directly if you’d like to learn more.
In this long-anticipated Issue #53, you’ll discover new ways of travelling across our island. We’ll zip down a steep dolerite gully on skis with Ben Armstrong, who has kindly strapped a GoPro to his helmet to capture the experience. It’s a remarkably calming experience, if a bit terrifying! We’ll tramp across the remote Central Plateau mountains to the edge of Lake Saint Clair with Andrew Szollosi, who is now publishing a beautiful alpine journal at Mountains of Tasmania.
For another fast and fluid helmet-cam experience, we discover the joys of Northeast Tasmania’s mountain bike trails on board with the Tracks Less Travelled crew. We then reconnect with Into the Wild Films, (formerly Selmes Filmes) who have shared a full hour of luscious footage of carefully captured aerial photography. You can watch different parts of the video, or enjoy the still screen captures, but I recommend you treat yourself to the whole experience.
Thanks for sticking with us, and do let us know what you think of the new site design. We’d be very grateful if you reported any bugs or errors.
Travel well wherever you are – because of course, not all explorations are of the geographical kind.
All the best,
