Thank you to everyone who not only posted Ray's story on our page yesterday but personally responded to him as well. We are pleased to say we have made contact with Ray and look forward to him joining the IFISH team on a trip in Series 12 of IFISH. So wonderful to see the outpouring of good old Aussie spirit towards a lonely fisherman.

Sew Scone sent this to share; "from Australian Home Journal 1960" Wow, there you go, the latest and greatest technology from the 60s!

Cheers, witches. Is it too much to ask that our elected representatives can read? Reflect? Listen? And be inclusive?
We have a special feature for you today. A dozen beautiful pieces of art, showcasing Tasmania, thanks to Richard Stanley.
