The Callington Mill, Tasmania

This week I had the pleasure of a short holiday in gorgeous Tasmania. On Thursday I took the opportunity to drive through the rural regions north of Hobart where I happened upon Callington Mill in the town of Oatlands. This mill is the oldest working mill of its kind in the southern hemisphere. You can even purchase flour milled on site! Read more about Callington Mill here.

Things to see – the grounds at Blarney Castle.

Everyone knows that kissing the Blarney Stone bestows the gift of eloquent speech. Not quite sure where I went wrong there. Apart from pressing your lips against a rock that thousands of lips have smacked before you, the best thing about Blarney Castle is the beautiful grounds it’s situated upon. The grounds include this small cottage, a garden of poisonous plants, fields of wildflowers, fields of planted flowers, caves, creeks and manicured lawns.
