Jade + Will

31st December 2020

We originally thought a Vegas getaway was an ideal wedding for us, but as our parents have been patiently waiting for us to grow up and ‘settle down’, we decided a NYE bash in Tassie with family and friends would be the ultimate way to celebrate. There will be plenty of bottles waiting to be popped – all we need are the people we love.

*At the time of us creating this website, we weren’t in the middle of a global pandemic – we hope that come 31st December our wedding is able to go ahead and more importantly, everyone is well and able to make it.

Schedule

  • Pre-Wedding Catch Up

    If you’re arriving in the North of Tassie the day before the big day, feel free to pop by Entally Estate Bistro & Bar to say hello, have a drink, eat dinner or don’t. This is not an ‘official’ wedding event just a chance to catch up.

    This is a kid friendly event.

    Come morning, we will all feel a few years older, but according to history, we’ll live to see another day. We really do hate to see the party end, so lets graze on a News Years Day feast and drink bubbles and brews to ease the pain.

Wish you could teleport to Tasmania? Us, too. Here are the next best options....

Fly to Launny

Fly directly into Launceston and step off the plane in party mode.

This is the most direct route and possibly the cheapest depending where you are flying from.

Our wedding & accommodation is based in Launceston & surrounds.

We’ll be waiting with a gin in hand.

Find Flights

Fly to Hobart

Fly in or out of scenic Hobart, the capital of Tasmania and the Southern most city in Australia.

Soak up all that Hobart has to offer in delicious wine, food, views & fresh air then hit the highway ready to join the wedding celebrations. Stop for a famed Tassie whisky along the way.

Launceston is a 2 hour drive North from Hobart.

Save some whisky for us.

Find Flights

Drive Yo'self

We know that some of you like to turn a two day holiday into a full blown adventure… if based in the eastern states (or you have a month off work) consider driving yourself to Tassie.

Catch the Spirit of Tasmania from Port Melbourne & you’ll be in Devonport by 6am the next morning.

From Devonport you will need to drive an hour south-east to Launceston.

After the wedding, hit the road and explore all Tassie has to offer.

Gifts

We appreciate you coming from near and far to be with us on our special day and we cannot wait to spend time with each of you. Your attendance is as good a gift as any. Who really needs a Vitamix, anyway?

We look forward to reading all of your beautiful words.

No material gifts please.

Tasmania


Launceston…

We can’t really tell you a whole lot about Launny as we aren’t from there, so we googled the following;

Launceston is a riverside city in northern Tasmania, Australia. It’s famed for the Cataract Gorge, with panoramic views, walking trails, sculpted gardens, and a chairlift.

Basically, it’s a nice place but let’s face it, there’s a whole lot more to Tasmania, so here are some things to do and places to stay if you’re not from there and decide to spend some time exploring. It is the holiday season after all!

MONA

655 Main Road, Berridale
Hobart, Tasmania

Mona: a museum, or something. In Tasmania, or somewhere. Catch the ferry. Drink beer. Eat cheese. Talk crap about art. You’ll love it.

Cradle Mountain & Lake St Clair Day Walks

Dove Lake
Cradle Mountain, Tasmania

The jagged peaks, highland moors, stunning lakes, waterfalls and rainforest of central Tasmania are all testament to the sheer power of ice. About 10,000 years ago the whole central plateau was covered by a 6km thick ice sheet which grinded, scraped, gauged and smoothed the 1000 million-year-old rock beneath. When the ice melted it left behind 161,000 hectares of wilderness bookended by Dove Lake at the northern end (at the foot of Cradle Mountain) and Lake St Clair (Australia’s deepest lake) at the south. Australia’s most famous bushwalk, the Overland Track, traverses the full length of the park from north to south but if you don’t have a week to spare, or just prefer the idea of a hot shower at the end of a day’s walking, there are some excellent day walks that venture into the park from both the northern and southern ends that offer a sample of this spectacular wilderness.
