Armchair Travel: Geeveston Tasmania

I’ve done quite a lot these armchair travel posts now but I hadn’t done one about Geeveston. As it was home to me for many years I guess I wasn’t really thinking of it as a travel destination. It was just home. However, Geeveston is a great little town that I’ve photographed and written a lot about since I started this blog.

The former town hall in Church St
Trees are a big part of the Geeveston story.

I think it is a very picturesque little town and I’m not the only one. Geeveston is also one of the towns used in the filming of “Rosehaven” along with Oatlands and New Norfolk.

There is also a very strong sense of community.

Here are links to some other posts I’ve written about Geeveston.



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.
