While we invite you to participate wherever you are this year, we'll still be here 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.
Poatina village is home to Poatina Arts, a vibrant Artist Colony and Arts Collective with facilities that include the Alethea Mountain Retreat Arts Centre, Poatina Glass Studio and The Poatina Tree Art Gallery. Other features include Capstone College, Golf Course, Poatina Chalet, General Store, Gift Shop, Tiers Tea Lounge and Op Shop.
During FATA21online we'll make sure to share some of the local beauty with you during our sessions, so you can smell the Tasmanian beauty and hear the wide open sky.
(well, maybe in 2022...)
By air (fast and affordable) to Launceston Airport - a 40min drive away. We offer free airport pickups and drop-offs. Include your flight details on the registration form or email them later.
By boat (if bringing a vehicle) on the Spirit of Tasmania - Melbourne to Devonport - and a 1.5hr drive.
For this year (cos things are a little different) put on your moccasins, pack some activated almonds in a ziplock, and sit comfortably in front of your computer.
In our usual residential mode (this isn't a usual year!), registration includes budget shared accommodation in the Poatina Chalet hostel.
Motel rooms with private ensuite and self contained Mountain Cottages are available for an additional upgrade fee, either to share with a partner or friend, or to enjoy solo.
We're looking forward to hosting you in person in future years, but for FATA21
put a flower on your pillow
fold over the toilet paper corners
and enjoy your own beautiful hospitality!
