There aren’t many major cities on the globe that can boast a natural wilderness reserve literally minutes from the CBD. Launceston is one such place, and @jarradseng captured it perfectly in a recent visit to @northerntasmania's Cataract Gorge Reserve. Take some time to explore and you'll find walking tacks, a swimming pool, the world's longest single span chairlift, a restaurant, a cafe, a suspension bridge, and panoramic lookouts with spectacular views. Don't forget to keep an eye out for the resident peacocks! 🍂🦆🚶♂️Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Jarrad!
Summer in Launceston and the views couldn't be better! @hollirob snapped this inviting shot while exploring the Cataract Gorge Reserve. Known locally as the Gorge, it's a unique natural formation within a two-minute drive of the @northerntasmania's city - a rare natural phenomenon in any city. Alternatively, take an easy 15 minutes to walk from the CBD along the banks of the Tamar River. And once there, cool off in the park's swimming pool before exploring the rolling lawns, footbridge and chairlift across the river. Sounds perfect, don't you think? 👙🏖️☀️ Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Holli!
Behold the beauty of @tasmania! We’re in Launceston to be exact, as part of the @monafoma festival hosted by @monamuseum. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Installations like this one by @parerstudio in Cataract Gorge Reserve are scattered across @northerntasmania, as well as a bucketload of other activities including headline music acts, dance, theatre, local food producers and “non-dorky workshops.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But you’ll need to hurry as it’s only on until 20 January - miss out and you might find yourself with a case of the Mona FOMOs 😈
The sights, sounds and spectacle of Tassie’s summer celebrations have commenced. Curious events are popping up across @northerntasmania’s gateway Launceston with @monamuseum’s summer festival @monafoma transforming this delightful town into a garden of mortal delights and divine corruption from Saharan desert rock, Polish punk, Swedish pop to a mass onesie extravaganza and monumental inflatable art such as @parerstudio’s Man lit up captured above at the First Basin, Cataract Gorge Reserve. The best part? It's your choice to either dip your toe in, or to completely immerse yourself. Either way the FOMA is the only proven cure for the FOMO. So what are you waiting for? Get amongst it! 📸: @monafoma#discovertasmania#monafoma#northerntasmania
What happens in Launnie, stays in Launnie: @monafoma has popped up in the shimmering oasis that is Launceston. Go see some free stuff or get a ticket to the main festival action at Inveresk Precinct from Friday 18–Sunday 20 January.
How’s the serenity: Morning Meditations, aka your Zen soundtrack, kicked off yesterday with Ritchie and Ng in Cataract Gorge’s Fairy Dell. Daily at 10am throughout the festival. Mind the peacocks. Free.
Getting up early is hard. 🌅 Over sleeping, wasting the day and feeling like crap is hard. 😥 Losing weight is hard. 🍏 Being over weight is hard. 🍕 Exercising is hard. 🏃♀️ Feeling guilty for not exercising is hard. 😶 Changing careers is hard. 👔 Working 40 hours every week in a job you hate is hard. 🗂 Living week to week is hard. 💸Becoming financially free is hard. 💰
You chose your hard! Sometimes it’s actually harder to stay where we are, then to make a change. Everyone is faced with the same excuses. Yes you can cry, yes you can scream, but no, you cannot give up. ✨
