Things to do in Hobart This Month

1 May

It’s election day so get out there and get your democracy sausage.

3 May

Today Guildford Young College will host an all new Youth Week event, live-streaming young Tasmanian speakers who’ve had success through their chosen career pathways, sharing the difficulties they’ve faced as well as the things that have helped and supported them along the way. The event is to help young people who might be struggling in choosing their future steps towards their own careers. It’s run by students for students and is timely while jobs are scarce and students are finding it hard to pin-point what it is they want to do with their career. For more information please contact Deb Winton – Careers Counsellor at GYC on: dwinton@gyc.tas.edu.au

8 May

Get along to the Tassie Indie Author Book Fair which is being held today at Brooke Street Pier from 10AM-3PM. Over 60 independent authors will be sharing the fruits of their hard work.

9 May

Don’t forget today is Mother’s Day!

Take Mum along to the Spring Bay Mill Pumpkin Harvest Party. There will be pumpkin competitions, gardening demos, no-dig gardening workshops, pumpkin carving, live music, local delicacies and of course, pumpkin soup. Learn how to get your pumpkins looking really great and grow in all types of conditions, or bring along your home grown pumpkins for a chance to win prizes. Tickets are $25 (12 and under are free) and there are lunch options by Flint Kitchen on the day.

Mum might enjoy lunch by the water at the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania’s Mother’s Day lunch. Tickets are $60, (under 12s are $30), and includes a complimentary glass of sparkling wine. More details are here.

Exploring Tassie These Winter School Holidays
We know that staying indoors with the family isn’t always fun. And while it’s obviously cold outside, you’re only a puffer jacket and beanie away from being comfortable and ready to explore. There’s lots of family fun to be had in all sorts of weird and wonderful places across the state these school holidays.

The borders were declared shut in Tasmania on the 30th of March, 2020; the first stare to do so amid the COVID- 19 pandemic and hard lockdown of Hobart followed.
Danphe Nepalese and Indian Food + Peppermint Bay Bar and Bistro
Nepalese food is a comfort in our house. Having spent much time trekking and mountain climbing in Nepal as a younger man, Nepalese food is something I always love to go back to.
That’s DR Hannah Gadsby To You

Hobart Chefs: When The Obsession Becomes Real
Tasmania’s brand as a foodie haven is cemented. But within the local hospitality industry there are those who love to use local produce...and those who are next-level obsessed with it. We spoke to a bunch of Hobart chefs who are top of the game when it comes to fostering relationships with local farmers and growers.
Did You Know Australia’s First Female Doctor Was Hobartian?
Tasmania, despite its small size and population in comparison to the mainland, has produced more than its proportionally predicted percentage of significant figures and heroes of Australian history. 
Return Travellers Adding Pressure to Hobart Housing
For all of us 2020 was a year like no other, punctuated by rapid change and plenty of new challenges. For vulnerable people in Tasmania, including people facing homelessness, those on low incomes and those facing increasingly higher rents, it was very challenging. We are seeing a growing demand for homes in Tassie from international travellers returning home, people moving for work and others seeking the lifestyle that our Apple Isle has to offer.

Tacks on the tracks. Mountain bikers beware of tacks being left on certain tracks on the mountain.
Just when you think your cousins are alright. NZ Opposition Leader Judith Collins took aim at Tassie during her recent (unsuccessful) campaign, calling us Australia’s “poor cousin.” She also seems worried about us nabbing tech businesses, “It’s a lovely part of the world but do you necessarily want to go there with your high- tech business? Possibly not,” she said. We beg to differ!
