A Tiny Place cafe

A Tiny Place cafe is nestled into the second oldest settlement in Australia ‘ Battery Point ‘. The restaurant is a contemporary interpretation of classical French bistro food that occasionally meanders through Asia and that is highlighted in dishes with a subtle touch. The restaurant caters up to 28 guests, the decor fits the building which was established in 1864. Some of the walls are decorated with frescos of plants, vegetables, trees and birds while others are splattered with plaques of Tin Tin to give it a more playful feel. The furniture is an eclectic mix of old furnishings from a working gramophone, AM radios and chairs that somehow all being different seem to blend in.

Avoca Museum and Information Centre

The Avoca Museum and Information Centre (AMIC) in the 106 year old heritage listed building promotes the beautiful Fingal Valley region. The old Avoca State School opened in 1908 at a cost of 348 pounds, and in 1929 73 pupils were enrolled. Prime Minister Joe Lyons visited the school in 1936, the year the wireless set and electric power were installed. The CWA used the old building when a new school was built in 1951. The building suffered years of neglect until in 2010 Greater Esk Tourism successfully obtained $193,000 from the Urban Renewal and Heritage Fund, TCF, FRRR, Arts Tasmania and other bodies to fund the restoration, with volunteers completing the work prior to opening on Australia Day 2012. The AMIC Committee restored the Cenotaph and recommenced Anzac Day services in 2013. New gym equipment, picnic tables and soldiers' memorial trees have enhanced Boucher Park. AMIC includes the old school atmosphere, a current 'Sporting History of the Avoca District' exhibition, visitor information and local craft sales. The Fingal Valley has stunning scenery, mountain climbs, bush walks, waterfalls and the world's tallest white gums at Evercreech Forest Reserve. Turn off the main Esk Highway and explore our 'Valleys of Adventure'

Barnbougle Dunes

Barnbougle Dunes is a links golf course with breathtaking views near Bridport, north-east Tasmania. The dramatic scenery and challenging 18-hole championship course is among the best links courses worldwide. The layout is a mix of voluptuous dunes, sandy waste and rough typical of a links course. The same blend of fescue grass extends from tee to green, and there is dramatic movement in its bumpy fairways and rolling greens. This is best exemplified by the outward nine, which plays through a series of saddles that both shelter and direct play lines. The back nine is striking with multiple panoramas of the course, adjoining the bay and the town of Bridport in the distance. Enjoy the par-71 design which does not require brute strength, but allows you to exert power to an advantage at certain points. No matter what your ability, this course lends itself well to strategy and plotting a suitable path. There is a driving range, putting green and chipping green with bunkers for you to hone your technique. At the end of the day enjoy the spectacular public clubhouse or stay in the Barnbougle cottages. Barnbougle Dunes is approximately a one-hour drive north-east of Launceston (83 km).

Bass & Flinders Centre

The Bass and Flinders Centre is centrally located in George Town on Tasmania's Tamar River. In 1798, the explorers Bass and Flinders were dispatched to 'Van Diemen's Land' to ascertain if Tasmania was an island or not. They sailed with a crew of eight in Her Majesty's Colonial Sloop Norfolk right into the Tamar River and anchored off what is now George Town. In 1998, Bern Cuthbertson in the replica Norfolk, re-enacted the Bass and Flinders journey. Like Bass and Flinders, Bern established a relationship with George Town and asked if she could be berthed on the banks of the Tamar at George Town. Bern and his team of volunteers in Hobart constructed the replica Norfolk. The hull is Huon Pine and the mast and deck are made out of Celery Top Pine. Not a screw or a nail was used - trunnels or treenails hold the vessel together. The Bass and Flinders Centre is now the home of the replica sloop 'Norfolk', together with the 'Elizabeth', a replica of the whale boat rowed by James Kelly around Tasmania; the ex-naval cutter 'Kenneth Dickenson'; two old racing 'fours'; a banana boat surfboard and the gentle 'Melanie' and many more.

Bay of Fires

Bay of Fires is a truly special region north of St. Helens on Tasmania's north-east coast with clean white beaches, blue water and granite rocks splashed with orange lichen. It's not surprising that Lonely Planet named the Bay of Fires as one of the world's hottest travel destinations. Beach activities and bird-watching are popular in this beautiful reserve. You may even see a pod of dolphins as they cruise along parallel to the beach. The area is also known for its snorkelling and diving, with scenic reefs, corals, underwater caves and abundant sea life. The Bay of Fires Conservation Area offers beach-side camping and the elevated sites amongst the trees have amazing views of the coast and sea. There are camping grounds along a 13-kilometre section of road at the southern end of the conservation area, approached via St Helens. The bay was named by Captain Tobias Furneaux in 1773 in response to the many Aboriginal fires he saw burning on its shore.
