    On Monday I visited the fantastic property Shene in Tasmania where Anne and David Kernke are preserving Tasmania’s heritage for future generations. This is a ‘must see’ and should be on every cultural tourists agenda along with the eleven Australian Convict Series World Heritage Sites.
As Shene’s website states:
Ordinary people extraordinary challenge.Hear first hand of their vision to breath life into this iconic estate.
