Where’s Malcolm?

My regular weekly Hobart trip takes many twists and turns… literally. On Monday the 25th I left Hobart picked up some ingredients from Moonah then turned off at Melton Mowbray and travelled through Bothwell and almost reached the Great Lake but turned right and went down over Poatina to Cressy. (See photo at the top of Poatina overlooking Cressy and Longford above a layer of cloud with Ben Lomond poking its head out in the distance).

I then weaved down the mountain to Cressy and my favourite eatery, The Rustic Bakery. If you have a sweet tooth like me, well, you’ve got to try the pastries and their sweets, they are divine as is all their food, oh the Chai Latte is the best also!


Make an effort to travel about and support Tasmanian businesses not just now, but always. These are the businesses that employ locals, spend locally and their profits get spent locally also. Another amazing place in Cressy is The Granary, Richmond Hill just north of the Cressy Township. The former Granary is now a magnificent three-bedroom house accommodation. (See photo below.)

Friday the 29th I left Latrobe and did a couple of deliveries in Launceston then east to St Helens at the East Coast Village Providore, put it on your bucket list! Bicheno was the next stop followed by Swansea, Triabunna, Orford, Sorell and then for my final delivery in Howrah.
