Living In Tasmania is run by another Huon Valley local and I found the blog via Facebook. This is an interesting set of photos of Hobart’s Cascade Brewery.

Living In Tasmania

The Cascade Brewery, right at the foot of Mount Wellington on the outskirts of Hobart, is the oldest operating brewery in Australia. It was initially a saw mill from 1825, which is convict era, and it was indeed built with the help of convicts.. then they started the brewery in 1831. It has obviously been expanded and modernized since then, and it is now a very fascinating mix of old sandstone buildings with state-of-the-art robots and brewing equipment.

They run paid walking tours of the brewery itself, paid tours of their gardens and historical sights, or you can just rock up and browse the visitors center, which has lots of photos and equipment scattered around as well as the obligatory gift shop and cafe/bar.

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
