Icena Farm Stay


My extended family all met at Icena Farm Accommodation for the ANZAC Day Long Weekend.  A farming family going on holidays to a another farm … classic!

Nick and I broke up our journey and stayed in Launceston on Friday night – where the Autumn leaves and light were amazing, before venturing out to Icena the next morning.

Icena is located on the far north-eastern tip of Tasmania – a special place for me as an amazing camping spot when I was younger, and later where I was a guide on the Bay of Fires Walk for several years.  Nick also had a family farm in the district when he was growing up and my brother spent many years harvesting on the Rushy Lagoon property.

In my opinion the region has it all – beautiful beaches, rolling green hills, bushwalks and even a wind farm!  The weather was absolutely glorious and we really did have an amazing time.

We had a cooking roster where you were allocated a meal and a sibling or brother/sister-in-law to cook with.  As a result, it was a very relaxing weekend apart from when you were in the kitchen cooking your assigned meal.

We had some fun and games on our last night, pulling out some hilarious masks that I bought years ago at The Louvre in Paris.  Masks that always add a little bit of humour in any situation.  Xx

Star of the Show

Bay of Fires

Last week I was working again with Tourism Tasmania, hosting a national travel magazine featuring the beautiful Bay of Fires and a somewhat famous Australian model, who I am unable to disclose until the article is published in June/July.  I will keep you guessing until then!

I had the pleasure of working with some amazingly talented women who were orchestrating the shoot – a Managing Editor, an Art Director, a Photographer, a Make-up/Hair Artist, the model’s Agent and a Stylist.

A Stylist that I have been following on-line for quite some time, so I was a little star-struck when I met Inez Garcia of Inez Daily!  An avid reader of her blog, it was humbling to meet someone face-to-face that you kind of feel like you know in the on-line space.  She was delightful and obviously one very stylish lady!

The real star of the show however, was the amazing Bay of Fires.  Never one to disappoint it turned on its best side, despite the dark clouds threatening to spoil the shoot.  Some of the crew stayed at the delightful Eden at Bay of Fires where we were able to enjoy a nice lunch together, take in the view and reflect on the sheer beauty of this place.  Xx
