Face Masks


Here in Hobart, we have to wear face masks for the first time. 

We’ve been in a snap 3 day lockdown over the weekend. Tasmanian has been covid free since June last year, with no cases in the community. 

Recent risk of transmission from a positive case in hotel quarantine resulted in this lockdown. As there have been no new cases, restrictions eased this evening. Except for mask wearing.

The weekend “stay at home” order allowed exercise within 5 km of home. I’m fortunate that this coastal path is just 200 steps from our front door. 

Do you wear a face mask when you leave your home? 

October Squares – Ross, Tasmania


Ross is a small town established in 1824 as a garrison town, home to several regiments of the British Army for thirty years, when Tasmania was a convict settlement.

Today it is a delightful town, known for this beautiful stone bridge, sandstone heritage buildings and wide streets.
