Tasmanian Arboretum Inc. - The


The Arboretum is a 66 hectare botanical tree park and nature reserve in Tasmania's North West. Only a few kilometres from Devonport but a million miles from care, the 66 hectares of landscaped Arboretum and natural bushland had its first planting in 1986. It offers the opportunity to walk among collections of woody plants from around the temperate world, including many of Tasmania's woody plants.
Set in a peaceful and beautiful valley, you may see some of Tasmania's wildlife, such as swift parrots and platypus.
Cultural and natural heritage combine in the Limestone Heritage Walk, a self-guided walk linking the geology with a century of human activity contributing to colonial and national development. Guided walks are available for a reasonable cost, and can be booked online. Bookings are essential.
The Arboretum offers three picnic shelters, two with coin operated electric barbecues. There are also two general shelters and a platypus observatory and bird hide on the shore of Founders' Lake.
The Tree Park Kiosk offers light refreshments and audio tours. It is operated by volunteers and opens between October and May from 1100 to 1600.

Quiet Cone Latrobe - The


The Quiet Cone, located in Latrobe on Tasmania's beautiful north-west coast offers an incredible experience. Shape, sound and scent and a combination of ancient knowledge in a modern setting create a new level of serenity and quietness.
Your unique experience begins when you enter a giant cone shaped structure designed to offer comfort, resonance and atmosphere. You make yourself at home on the comfortable mattresses and cushions, looking up into the seeming endless cone, while the aroma of sandalwood infuses the air, instilling a sense of well-being and relaxation.
Quietly you hear the resonating tones of symphonic gongs, being softly struck within the dome that encases you. Added to this we have the beautiful tones of Tibetan Singing Bowls and the wonderful sounds of Corinthian Chimes. The sound and vibration together with the sandalwood scent and placid atmosphere of the cone make you feel relaxed and serene.
Even if you have never meditated before, you cannot help but enter a supremely restful yet energising meditative state.
This is an experience you will be keen to repeat and share with others.
A gift shop, gardens, a 'Walk of Contemplation' and other healing therapies on site.

Working Art Space Sheffield


The Working Art Space is located in Sheffield the famous northwest Tasmanian Town of Murals. It is both an art gallery and thriving hub of local arts related activity. Established in 2005 by the Kentish branch of Tasmanian Regional Arts, it is situated in a heritage-listed former drill hall built in 1912 for the 22nd Light Horse Company.
The interior of the building has been transformed into a high quality arts based facility where you can view and purchase the exceptional work of local artists and artisans, enrol in one of the regularly held workshops plus check out the latest exhibition on display.
If you take the self-guided audio tour of Sheffield's murals, which can be arranged through the Visitor Information Centre, you will eventually find yourself at the Working Art Space because it boasts its own mural with a fitting theme - an old man reminiscing on his youth as a Light Horseman. Alternatively you can follow the stunning new mosaic pathway featuring Tasmanian flora and fauna created by Working Art Space members, from the carpark at the centre of town across historic King George V Park and find yourself at the Gallery. It is definitely worth a visit.

International Mural Fest


Be captivated by this truly unique art competition that is held annually in Sheffield - the 'Town of Murals', in Tasmania, Australia, commencing Easter Sunday every year. Mural Fest is so successful that similar events are now happening interstate and overseas.
Each year, nine artists compete in a public 'paint off' from Easter Sunday to the following Saturday. Each artist must complete a mural, using the same poem as their mural's central theme and inspiration.
The competition is conducted in Mural Park - Sheffield's very own outdoor art gallery in the heart of Tasmania's Cradle Mountain touring region.
Mural Fest tests artistic skill, endurance and tenacity: artists are subjected to public scrutiny, time constraints and sometimes unpredictable Tasmanian weather!
The Redwater Creek Railway steam train will be running during this time. Check the website for details.
