Evie Hindrum - Tasman Peninsula
“I enjoy having lots of outdoor activities close to my workplace including hiking at some of the beautiful national parks near Hobart including Mt. Field and Tasman Peninsula.

I also love the white beaches on the sunny east coast and the famous 'Bay of Fires,' and snowboarding at Ben Lomond National Park in winter.”

“I moved here 12 years ago as Tasmania has great teaching hospitals and lots of mountains – not sure when the honeymoon period will ever end.

Some days I choose to kayak to work, others I can take a mountain bike track over Mount Wellington and arrive at work in time for a shower to wash the mud off.

But the best days are those where I can go for a run in the snow, or catch a wave at a nearby beach before work.”
