The Starman and the Scribbler

Immerse yourself into the western wilderness of Tasmania while you capture your own impressions of the flora and fauna on canvas, working alongside renowned artist Sobrane Simcock. This tour will provide like minded artists to be creative and to produce art in an area that abounds nature at its best. The itinerary takes in some great short walks of the region and a cruise along the famous Pieman river. In the evenings, be enthralled with Greg Quicke’s evening talks as he proceeds to tune you in to what he calls 'Earth Tuning Consciousness'. You will get to know over the six nights that you are on a planet that is turning that is also hurtling through space on a journey around the sun.
