The Bass and Flinders Centre is centrally located in George Town on Tasmania's Tamar River. In 1798, the explorers Bass and Flinders were dispatched to 'Van Diemen's Land' to ascertain if Tasmania was an island or not. They sailed with a crew of eight in Her Majesty's Colonial Sloop Norfolk right into the Tamar River and anchored off what is now George Town. In 1998, Bern Cuthbertson in the replica Norfolk, re-enacted the Bass and Flinders journey. Like Bass and Flinders, Bern established a relationship with George Town and asked if she could be berthed on the banks of the Tamar at George Town. Bern and his team of volunteers in Hobart constructed the replica Norfolk. The hull is Huon Pine and the mast and deck are made out of Celery Top Pine. Not a screw or a nail was used - trunnel's or treenails hold the vessel together. The Bass and Flinders Centre is now the home of the replica sloop 'Norfolk', together with the 'Elizabeth', a replica of the whale boat rowed by James Kelly around Tasmania; the ex-naval cutter 'Kenneth Dickenson'; two old racing 'fours'; a banana boat surfboard and the gentle 'Melanie'.

Enjoy the Environmental Art Gallery at The Ugly Duck Out on Tasmania’s sunny east coast. Resident artist Robyn Klobusiak uses the mediums of photography and paint to create a fusion of art and nature. Her images call for the wild world to endure. Beyond recording the beauty of nature, Robyn’s Environmental Art cries out for its protection. She hopes her work inspires people to change behaviour, conserve nature and nurture our planet’s vanishing spirit. Photographic images, painted rocks and painted skulls of road kill feature at the gallery. All her work is designed to touch peoples’ hearts, change peoples’ minds and perhaps provoke action. At the very least it reminds us of our earth’s inspiring beauty and visually challenges us to define the line between our nature and our art. The casual family restaurant within the gallery specialises in dietary requirements. The globally inspired menu features produce from the on-site vegetable and herb garden. All other produce, meats and seafood are locally and sustainably sourced. Try the Wallaby Goulash, East Coast Calamari or the locally cured bacon and eco-pig. The Ugly Duck Out is also a holder of Ecotourism Australia Accreditation.

It is open seven days a week and can cater for individuals, small or large recreational groups, as well as corporate and educational groups. This unusual attraction on Phillip Island, Victoria, is certainly making peoples heads turn. All who drive the Phillip Island Road cannot help but be mystified by the Giant Purple Tap that seemingly floats in mid air, whilst gushing out thousands of litres of water into an apparently Flooded House. Right from the moment you enter the property there are things that catch your eye and trick your brain. Starting with the Flooded House and the worlds' largest backwards clock you know you are in for an experience that is like no other. You can get your head chopped off, be shrunk to half your size, get lost in the mirror maze or outdoor maze, fall off a cliff or zoom along on the flying boogie boards. There is a long list of things to do, problems to solve and places to go. The maze itself, is one Australia's largest, takes an average of 45 minutes to complete. When you have finished getting lost why not tackle the stimulating 19 hole maxi mini-golf course. After all the excitement you can browse in Victoria's most unique puzzle and games shop, or take a breather in the Puzzle Café or the Gelato and Lolly Shop. Other facilities provided include electric barbecues and children's adventure playgrounds.
