We're Going Bush

Going Bush, a television series about Australia's southern forests and the people who manage them will hit television screens in Tasmania, Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland this Saturday.

Hosted by likeable larrikins Nick Duigan and Andrew Hart of Hook Line and Sinker fame, Going Bush will go to air on Southern Cross Television at 12:30pm in regional Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland and at the later timeslot of 5pm in Tasmania.

Tune in and enter our competition to win great prizes from our tourist attractions and to welcome our interstate viewers there's a chance to win a return trip for the whole family on the Spirit of Tasmania plus an Adventure Forests statewide tour package.<read more>

If you happened to be in Hobart on Monday last week, you may have been greeted by the spectacle of 'Krusty', our giant freshwater crayfish, wandering the CBD to promote the International Year of Forests 2011 . We marked our involvement in this special year by holding an open day in our Melville Street Dome <read more>. However, if you couldn't make it to the open day, don't worry - we have a full calendar of events in place to celebrate the International Year of Forests <read more>.

And if you haven't visited the Railtrack Rider at Maydena yet - the launch of the new 'Florentine Station' has added yet another reason to experience this one-off Tasmanian adventure. I've been on the Railtrack Rider myself a number of times, so I can honestly say, it's great fun. <read more>

One for the diary, make sure you get down to the Australian Wooden Boat Festival in Hobart from February 11-14, and catch up with our guys at the Island Specialty Timber stand. More on that, the next episode of Going Bush and the new AirWalk Lodge next week.

Until next time,
