    The brussel sprouts are coming on a treat. All the coxes orange pippins are now harvested. Oysters are in top condition along with the mussels. Lots of bluefin offshore and kingfish in the bay. Bloody tourists everywhere. Hops have now been harvested and being added to our boutique beers. Whiskey distilleries proliferating. Why do we live here??

    Buggered if I know. Why not go and live in Queensland and enjoy nice weather. All those other things you can just import from Tasmania.

    A bloody lot easier than living in a pantry with the temperature of a fridge.

    I have an almost identical view hanging on my living room wall. ...from memory I took it around Bridport somewhere. We seem to have the pick of the weather at the moment. Sunbathing and bare feet. It never rains in Lonnie.

    Absolutely beautiful - spent a long weekend there last year and would go back in a flash.

    Tassie is awesome. My ideal climate.

    If you really want brass monkey cold, move to Canberra. If you want intolerably hot, move to Canberra.... 2 hours from places you'd actually want to be, close to nothing.

    Having lived near Cooma, south of Canberra, I can safely say it was colder than anywhere I've been in Tassie with possible exception (and I'm really not even sure of this...) of the central highlands around Great Lake.......
    Tassie is awesome....something about the quality of the air down here, each time I go to the mainland I have a great time...but when I step off the plane in Hobart airport I am hit by a wave of Tassie air and instantly feel like I'm home!

    Hi Folks

    There are many great reasons, including those already given as to why it's fantastic to live in Tasmania, but surely one of the best reasons are that we have some of the best drivers roads, get of those boring dangerous highways and your soon in driver's heaven in so, so may places in this great state. As far as the cold goes I have lived in colder places in Queensland where it got to below zero every winter so this is fine, of course there are some parts that get really cold but many more that don't.
    Regards
    Neil

    shhh! If we start telling everyone how good it actually is down here, there'll be a max exodus from the north island! (then we'll have stupid traffic like they do!)

    Yup - cold and no jobs - no reason for north islands to come here except on holidays in summer

    Down south - heap of blue fin in the freezer + sturmers still ripening on the trees. How many king fish are up there TassieC5? They are here down south, but a lot of water between them. Are there King George whiting coming in up your way also?

    Yellowtail are fickle fish, they are still here.Look at Michael Haleys blogs re fishing for them. King george have been here for a few years a few really nice ones have been caught. The garfish season is now underway, a good winter fishery.Black bream will soon be migrating up the river estuaries.
