Tasmania itinerary

Read about the musical tracks that Jasmine and Dewayne made through Hobart and Tasmania's pristine Western Wilderness.

Festival of voices, TAS

Day 1 & 2 – Hobart
The musicians had two days to explore Tasmania's compact capital city, known for its colonial history, creative culture and crisp sea air. They took a ferry along the Derwent River to the recently-opened Museum of Old and New Art and wandered the cobblestone streets of Salamanca Place. Both tourists and locals flock to this picturesque waterfront square, where the 1830s Georgian warehouses have been converted to galleries, theatres, cafes, restaurants and bars. Dewayne and Jasmine drew inspiration from local music concerts and enjoyed lots of Tasmania's famous produce, from cheeses to just-caught seafood and cool-climate wine.

Strahan, TAS

Day 3 & 4 – Strahan and Western Wilderness
Dewayne and Jasmine drove from Hobart, through Tasmania's Central Highlands, to Strahan. The remote fishing village of Strahan is the gateway to the dense World Heritage wilderness in Tasmania's west. The pair went quad biking over Strahan's sand-dunes and cruised across huge Macquarie Harbour to see Bonnet Island's little penguin colony. They soaked up the region's pioneering history on a steam train, gouging through the temperate forest to the old mining town of Queenstown. They also learnt about the region's legendary environmental campaigns as they cruised along the majestic Gordon River past ancient Huon pines.

Sir John Falls Heritage, TAS

Day 5 – Return to Hobart
The pair spent their final day driving back to Hobart through emerald farmland and hydro country dotted with lakes, waterfalls and quaint villages.

Victorian Itinerary

Track Dewayne and Jasmine's experiences along the dramatic Great Ocean Road, in dynamic Melbourne and the picturesque Yarra Valley.

Great Ocean Road, VIC

Day 1 - Melbourne to Great Ocean Road
Jasmine and Dewayne arrived in Melbourne in the evening, before heading to Port Campbell on the Great Ocean Road. The road and region winds alongside the wild and windswept Southern Ocean from Geelong to Portland. The lively seaside village of Port Campbell sits midway along the route, right near the craggy limestone spires of the Twelve Apostles.

Twelve Apostles, VIC

Day 2 – Twelve Apostles
The musicians immersed themselves in nature's drama at the Twelve Apostles in Port Campbell National Park.  Wind and waves have gouged the Apostles out of the cliff over 20 million years, forming first caves, then arches and then the columns we see today.  Each year they are whittled away further, and today only eight of the original 12 stacks remain. Jasmine and Dewayne took a scenic flight over the timeworn Apostles and the nearby gorges, arches and blowholes of London Bridge and Loch Ard Gorge. The musical duo then returned to their accommodation in Melbourne's centre, a perfect base for exploring city laneways bustling with bars, eateries, jazz bars and art spaces.

Melbourne, VIC

Day 3 – Yarra Valley
Dewayne and Jasmine took a tour through the picturesque Yarra Valley, an acclaimed winemaking region less than an hour from Melbourne. They learnt about different winemaking styles and the art of wine tasting as they visited boutique wineries, architecturally-designed cellar doors and rustic tin sheds hidden among the vines. The pair sampled local wines and enjoyed a gourmet lunch at a vineyard restaurant. They also created music against the Yarra Valley's rolling hills and manicured vineyards and one of its most famous wineries. Jasmine and Dewayne returned to Melbourne after a day of gourmet indulgence and musical inspiration.

Yarra Valley, VIC

Day 4 – Melbourne discovery
The musicians took a bike tour around Melbourne, following trails alongside the Yarra River, through tranquil parklands and into funky inner city precincts. They also wandered through Melbourne's maze of laneways, stopping to see the colourful, constantly-changing graffiti murals of Hosier lane. Melbourne's laneways have increasingly become spaces for artistic expression, making them the perfect backdrop for the Making Tracks collaboration. Jasmine and Dewayne also visited Melbourne's Royal Botanic Gardens, an oasis of parklands alongside the Yarra River.
