Tahune Airwalk


If you want to ditch the city and indulge in some of that gorgeous Tasmanian scenery we all take for granted, there’s no better way to do it than Tahune Airwalk. It’s a sprawling system of bridges and observation points set 20-50 meters above the breathtaking Huon Valley, and the natural views are simply stunning. Oh, and don’t forget to take the Cable Eagle Hang Glider over the river!

It’s quite an experience, right? Tell us what you thought right here!


Circus Art Tasmania


We’re pretty sure we’re not the only ones who thought about running away and joining the circus as a kid. Well, it’s time to make your dreams a reality! The talented tumblers at Circus Art Tasmania teach and perform circus skills across Tasmania, so if you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at juggling, trapeze or acrobalance, you know where to go! Adult classes are held at Moonah Arts Centre, and drop-ins are more than welcome.

Honey Badger Dessert Cafe


If you want to eat so much ice cream that you feel sick, there’s no better place in Hobart (and possibly the world) to that than Honey Badger Dessert Cafe. From waffles and pancakes to cheesecake, brownies, blondies and banoffees, the list of rich and opulent treats just goes on and on. Try the famously naughty hot chocolate, or give one of the lively ‘popping sodas’ a sip. Honestly though, you could pick anything on their menu and be in dessert heaven.

Don’t forget to leave Honey Badger a quick True Local review!


Launchpad Workshops


The brainchild of Annie Inglis and Emily Arlotte, Launchpad Workshops is a dedicated space where local artists, designers and craftspeople can get together and share their knowledge with all who wish to learn. Whether you’re interested in knitting, Japanese tie dying or chalk calligraphy, these laid-back, hugely enjoyable sessions are definitely the way to go about learning. Have fun!
