“I loved everything about my stay in Hobart in Juliet's house: the garden, the deck overlooking the sea, the sound of the waves at night, the beach below and the walks along the shore not to forget the very friendly neighbours. Taroona is a very pleasant suburb and it is easy to go to town with public transport. Tasmania has many charms and one week was too short to explore them all.”
