G‘day, mate. On the opposite side of the Pacific from Port Townsend and at the opposite side of the globe from Maine is a heart shaped island state “down under” where northerners who love wooden boats (and the wilderness of 40’s latitudes, original art, organic farming and vast ocean views) will wake up from jet lag in a dreamy déjà vu.

Melaleuca, Tasmania

It’s called Tasmania (Tassie to locals) and lies 150 miles south of mainland Australia across the infamous Bass Strait.

My first visit was in February 2007 for the 7th Australian Wooden Boat Festival, so that’s where this sries begins. Staged in
