The Next Best Thing: Must-Visit Locations Near The Major Cities

The Two Girls recently wrote a couple of pieces for the online magazine – American Express Essentials. Here’s the contribution we submitted on must-visit locations near the major cities.

Four angels reach to the heavens releasing birds in a small park on Melifont Street.  A symbol of freedom and opportunity, the sculpture is carved from an old Cypress pine. The former Quaker burial ground is now a leafy green oasis, a short walk from the bustling café strip of Elizabeth Street. Here’s the post – Hobart’s Best Park.


One of the most beautiful beaches in the area is at Conningham, just a half an hour from the city. Meander along the coastal walking track amongst Casuarinas and other native fauna, then take a swim in the cool waters of the sheltered bay. Snorkel above bull kelp, you might even catch sight of the elusive Weedy seadragon.

Just outside a little village with the cutest name in Tasmania, you’ll find a track to Snug Falls. Classified as an easy 45-60 minute walk, the track follows the gully through a forest of ferns to the beautiful falls that drop 20 metres or so. Perch on the river rocks and enjoy the peace and tranquillity. Here’s the post – Snug Falls.


The Bream Creek Farmers Market rose from the ashes of the bush fires that ravaged south eastern Tasmania in January 2013. Find artisan stalls and quality Tasmanian produce from local growers; and support the local community. Open the first Sunday of each month between 9 am and 1 pm at the Bream Creek Showgrounds, a 40-minute drive from Hobart. Here’s the post – Bream Creek Farmers Market.
