(To go with Can-can-Canberra.)  So I finally made it to Tasmania (leaving only the Northern Territory and Western Australia to go.  'Only' - they're only ginormous and very expensive to get to from Melbourne, but that's another story.)

Tasmania is the size of Ireland, for those of you who like to know these things.  It is regarded with some suspicion by Australians from the rest of Australia who believe that Tasmanians are a little bit odd.  Errol Flynn was from Tasmania.  It used to be called Van Diemen's Land.  It is now known as Tassie.    Here endeth the facts.

Hobart is a beautiful, small port town with lots of evidence of its colonial past.  We spent a sunny Sunday there, mostly going from one eating establishment to another.  I highly recommend the degustation lunch at Garagistes.  Below, my photo tour of the day:

The last few were taken from the ferry on the way to MONA - but that's a story for another day.
