Show Us Your Pics of Tassie WINNERS!


After two short weeks of touring around our little island state, we’re back in Melbourne again. We had a great time in Tassie, soaking up the beautiful landscape, tasting all the yummy local produce, and meeting all the friendly wildlife.


Stay tuned for our posts on Tassie, which will be published in the coming weeks!


Thank you to all the legends who sent through their pics of Tassie – we think all of your photos are fantastic. It was so hard to choose only one winner so we’ve decided to award first, second and third prizes!


In third place

@dandrews will receive a limited edition Our Naked Australia Camel mug and a Jim’s Jerky stubbie holder for their image of Salamanca Markets in Hobart, complete with snow capped mountains.

We loved this photo because of its quirky representation of Tasmania – umbrellas on a rocky beach. We bet the sun was out 5 minutes later!


We’ll be getting in contact with our winners to organise their prizes shortly. In the meantime, here are our other favourite pics of Tassie…

Australia Day 2015 Cairns


Wow – what an epic day!


With all of our mates back at home in Melbourne, we occupied ourselves by trying to have the most Australian Australia Day possible, and that meant checking out all of the fun community events that were on offer.


Pie Eating and Bull Riding at Cazaly’s

Our first stop was Cazaly’s, a massive entertainment and function complex.  They were hosting a huge Australia Day bash, complete with jumping castles, face painting and the staff dressed up as iconic Aussie characters.


We watched a few rounds of the pie eating competition, downed our first beer of the day, and just as we were getting ready to leave, we were intercepted and convinced to have a crack on the mechanical bull – YEEHAW!



Sausage in Bread on the Esplanade

It was surprisingly easy to find a free parking spot in the city (nobody wants to park under the trees where the smelly bats live).


The Esplanade was packed full of picnickers and people cooling off in the lagoon, with the scent of BBQ wafting through the air.  The members of the Cairns Surf Life Saving Club were doing a sizzle so we pulled out a few bucks for a sausage in bread – a cheap snack before our next stop.

Thong Tossing at the Court House

Our next beer was at the Courthouse Hotel, and the main bar was packed with fellas wearing green and gold or donning Aussie flags as capes.  We were just in time for the Rubber Thong Toss so we signed up and took our beers outside to prepare.


This thong throwing competition was all about accuracy, as opposed to the Whyalla comp which was all about distance.  Whoever got their thong in the fountain scored, particularly if the thong landed in the top, central tier.   Dave made it through two rounds while Juz tossed her second thong right over the back fence and was declared 6 and out!  In fact, she was the only one to throw a thong over the fence, thus making her the unofficial winner for distance.



Pool Party at Gilligan’s

The heat and humidity lured us to our next location – Gilligan’s – who were having a massive pool party with Triple J playing over the speakers.  Juz had a dip in the pool and a few pina colada slushies, while Dave picked up another pair of sausage sizzles for snacks.



Cocktails at Salthouse

With the Hottest 100 approaching the top 20, we walked over to the Salthouse to chill out with a cocktail by the marina.  We scored some limited edition Australia Day XXXX Gold stubbie holders and Juz sipped on a Lady In Red concoction as the day started to come to a close.

Australiana Triviana at The Red Beret

We popped home briefly to shower and compose ourselves before heading to our final destination – the Red Beret for Australia Day trivia with our trivia teammate Philip.  Our team’s name was the Budgie Smugglers and we ended up in 5th place.

Getting to sleep wasn’t difficult.  We got home at about 9:30pm, watched rage briefly and passed out as soon as our heads hit the pillow.  Happy Australia Day!

So, without any more ado – here are our top twelve awesome road trip adventure photos.

Kadeem – This is love.  The girl, the dog and my troopy.

Laura Scriven - Dusty Swift

Laura – Who says you have to get a 4×4 to go off road?! Unsealed roads with mud and a Tassie road trip resulted in this!

Michael Connolly Road Trip

Michael – Took the family to Nambucca Heads last month. Only 650km from home but the kids were still over it. Miss 19 who never goes to sleep on a road trip was snoozing heaps! Must be getting old.  We had a great holiday and even painted our names on the famous Nambucca breakwall.

_ Garrett Whitfield 2

Garrett – The Sandy Cape at Fraser Island earlier this year with my girlfriend Anna, my Mum, Karen and her husband Darren.  We are from Sydney so it was a bit of a drive for a week on the island but we got there in a few days and can’t wait to go back!


The Runners Up Prize is an awesome Camel Fail mug – well done guys!


And the winner is…
