Remember that Tasmanian wonder and hear the wide open sky that you missed while we were online? Well, this year you can come and spend the week in the unique and picturesque setting of the Poatina village community in Tasmania’s heartland. Nestled on the edge of the majestic World Heritage listed Great Western Tiers, Poatina aspires to be a community of hope, bringing life through a vibrant culture and inspiring practical spirituality.
