If there are diverse kinds of knowledge and ways of knowing place, then we need to learn to value the different ways each of us sees a single place that is significant, but differently so, for each perspective.

Tasmania: Hobart « Previous | |Next »
April 2, 2011

I fly out to Tasmania early this morning to begin to build on this body of work. We fly into Hobart via Melbourne, but the time we will spend in Hobart is very brief--sufficient time to get my Telstra mobile broadband sorted.

We drive up to Tunbridge via Oatlands in the Midlands to spend the evening with Barb and Mal in their Georgian store, which they are renovating over a ten year period. On Sunday afternoon we drive to Evanston and stay there the night with family. On Monday Suzanne and Barbara start their Cradle Mountain walk, Malcolm returns to Brisbane, and I go on to Queenstown.

Update
Though it is warm and pleasant during the day out of the wind, the westerly wind is very chilling. I would find it hard to live with. It was chilly around the edges of my body in Hobart but it cut through my clothes in the Midlands. Tasmania has had a sudden cold snap.

The CBD of Hobart looked depressing---there looked to be a lot of unemployed young people hanging out on the streets and the urban (working poor) poverty was very evident. What was evident was the bogan youth street culture that was in opposition to the official culture of conservative Tasmania.
