This is life in Tasmania, Australia and a look into my backyard, particularly the North West Coast.

It goes without saying that when you go to Stanley you have to experience the Stanley Nut in some way. Whether it’s climbing it, taking photos of it or experiencing the chairlift. Unfortunately the chairlift wasn't operating while we were there over the long weekend, so we opted to take lots of photos.

One week ago today MasterChef brought one of Tasmanian’s most quaint little towns into the spotlight - Stanley. Not to make you jealous or anything - *ahem* - but the area boasts some of the finest f

{My Tasmanian Backyard}: The night we slept with a sheep (Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel review) | threelilprincesses.com

We have been on regular ``mini breaks’’ lately which, apart from the packing, constant ``are we there yet?’’ and High School Musical CD on high rotation, are great rejuvenators. Princess Ella has got to the point where she walks into a hotel and immediately claims ``her bed’’ – which is often the biggest one in the apartment. Thankfully our trip to The Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel in Hobart last weekend had twin singles in one room. No amount of batting her eyelashes was going to convince…

My Tasmanian Backyard: Princess Theatre Launceston

TODAY I was hoping I’d be posting about what I was going to wear when I met Princess Mary next week. Instead, you get to hear about another Tasmanian princess – the Princess Theatre at Launceston in

My Tasmanian Backyard: Launceston Aquatic Centre | threelilprincesses.com

WE SWAPPED the girls’ usual splashing and bubble blowing (usually from both ends) at a nearby private pool for the state-of-the-art Launceston Aquatic Centre on Sunday. We’ve experienced just about every pool in Tasmania and this one is by far our favourite. And so it should be, being Tasmania’s newest public swimming pool and costing a tidy penny.

IT'S hard to believe Strahan’s Macquarie Harbour is six times larger than Sydney Harbour. In Sydney you also don’t get to experience the narrow and treacherous Hell’s Gates, see the salmon farms

EVERY so often we pull out our wedding video from the beautiful fishing town of Strahan on Tasmania’s West Coast. Each time Princess Ella asks: ``Can we go to the wedding, Mum?’’ We’ve long promised her we’d take her Strahan Village to see the View 42 Restaurant with the big balcony where we said ``I do’’, the West Coast Wilderness Railway where we had photos taken and the harbour, featuring Gordon River Cruises, that was our spectacular backdrop.

My Tasmanian Backyard: The Devonport Bluff | threelilprincesses.com

The Bluff, Devonport, Tasmania. IT’S about time I introduced you to my own backyard – as in Devonport in Tasmania’s North West not the jungle out the kitchen window. There are so many places I could take you (sorry, but the Warehouse Niteclub is not on the list). However, I thought I’d steer you in the direction of a favourite haunt that is family friendly, has had a major facelift (could go for one of those myself) and also happens to be free.
