Travelogue NICAN 2004: Tasmania Via the Devil's Playground Circuit

A quick glance at Kerry & Jane Winberg's web site for The Devil's Playground tips you off that they have big plans!

Not only have they created a concept that is unique -- a circuit of fully accessible lodgings that entirely encompass a desireable tourisim region -- they are developing side tours accessible to those of varying abilities.

Consider the circuit:

  • Launceston -- Headquarters (the main facility)

  • Nabawla -- Eco-Park

  • Branxholm -- Stoke Cottage

  • Westerway -- Riverside

  • Oatland -- The Millworker's Cottage

  • Queenstown - The Tween House

  • Tullah -- Tourist Resort

  • Boat Harbour -- The Retreat
  • What they need is a "signature event" -- something that makes full use of their facilities, knowledge of Tasmania, and transportation assets.

    How about an outdoor sports event at their Tullah site in November 2005?

    There is a lake for kayaking, sailing, canoeing, swimming and a fishing derby. There is a gym for indoor sports, trails for horseback riding and proximity to the trails on Cradle Mountain for trekking.

    Where do I sign up?

    Dove Lake, Cradle Mountain, Tasmania
