Tasmania Travelogue

Thursday, February 21st at 7:00 PM

In 2014, following their joint retirement, Mark and Cappy Nunlist went on a walkabout, first to Tasmania, an island off the southeast coast of Australia, then to New Zealand.

Cappy will give a slide presentation about the first part of this once-in-a-lifetime trip. See unspoiled beaches, spectacular cliffs, learn about Tasmania’s unique history, a world-famous trek – and Tasmanian devils – what more could you ask for! 

If you enjoyed her recent talk about New Zealand, you are sure to be fascinated by this one.

Enjoy coffee and a selection of homemade desserts after the presentation.
