Nice place for a visit but I couldn’t live there, my parents lived there and I did for a couple of years, OK good fishing and outdoors but get screwed on goods with the good old ‘freight charge’ and costs a fortune just to get over Bass Strait before you even start to have the inclination to wander around somewhere with your car.
I get down there about every two to three years with fly rod in hand, there are only so many galleries that you can visit and outside of Hobart there is not a lot.
Might do the cruise next time down, have done a couple before but only on the old ferries.
Last time in Snug we found a wharfie in the pub with his beer drinking mates drinking pots of moselle, story was his Dr told him to give up the beer or he would be dead in a couple of years.
You sir, are an idiot 😜
Bruny Island is one of my favourite spots, spent a lot of time there as a kid in our family holiday home.
All of my immediate family are somehow still tied to the place and I love to visit when I can.
I fully recommend the tour my brother previously guided.
Can’t remember the details but happy to find out if you want.
I used to fishing with the State Pathologist who had a boat on Bruny, he would always get hopelessly pissed and leave me in control and also to take care of the young nurses he always seemed to attract.
Was about a 50’ converted trawler which was well set up, many a wild weekend was spent on that while the good Dr slept, when we got back I had to drive him home in his Merc and pickup up my old VW to get home.
Usually went home with a sore dick and a few fish.
It’s been a long time since I’ve had a Cascade. They’re not horrible, just bland and uninteresting. At least it’s an ale.
I’m not going to waste my time drinking ordinary beers.
Try Cascade’s First Harvest if you can get hold of it, I think it would suit your palate.
Edit: Never mind, I googled it to provide a link but they stopped brewing it in 2016.
Here is a link that might be of interest if they have changed anything by the time you visit the great southern land again.
Little Creatures was bought out by a big brewer and I believe their beers are now made in several locations.
They are still managing to make Rogers’ well.
It’s my go to beer.
Little Creatures went down hill. It’s not bad but not as good as it once was.
Rogers is ok. I’ll drink that if there’s nothing else.
