“A friend of mine who lives in Sydney was trying to describe Tasmania to me before I left and he said ‘it’s like Vermont with bigger sharks!'” [2:32]
“About 45% of Tasmania is preserved land, it’ll never be developed, so it is one of the wildest places on Earth still.” [4:40]
“There are some great ingredients right in Tasmania that everyone wants!” [16:50]
