Rochelle & Wally Dare
Undiscovered Tasmania is described as a travel guide to the real Tasmania. Beyond the usual tourist attractions, this small island is brimming with special places to see and experience, and locals Rochelle and Wally Dare are here to let visitors in on their secrets.
This isn’t your typical guidebook. Rochelle and Wally will take you deep into the Corinna Wilderness, along stretches of beautiful beaches and to their favourite places to camp. Sections include 'Beaches We Barefoot' (but NOT including Wineglass Bay), 'Roads We Trip', 'Towns We Explore' and 'Wildlife We Respect'. There's also advice for travelling on Tasmanian roads, a road toolkit, stories of locals and a focus on Tassie’s burgeoning food scene, from farm-to-plate restaurants to the best fish and chips in the state. Many experiences are uniquely Tasmanian like the Floating Sauna on Lake Derby, while the diversity of landscapes include the moon-like mining town of Queenstown and the rolling green hills of King Island that make it so perfect for dairy products.
Featuring Rochelle's stunning photography throughout, this guide will take you to those places that fly under the radar, but represent the ultimate travel destinations across the Apple Isle. They're hidden gems and places that Rochelle and Wally hold dear in their hearts.
About the Authors
Rochelle and Wally Dare are just a couple of Tasmanian locals who grew up exploring their state every chance they got. They started the Instagram account Let’s Go Dare in 2018 to show their curious friends and family where they were headed on their days off, and it has just grown from there.
Rochelle hails from the Derwent Valley, and as her old man was an active member of a Tasmanian 4WD club, she spent her childhood on weekend adventures off the beaten track, or Sunday drives to small towns to put in a working bee cleaning up local cemeteries.
Wally is one of seven kids, and his childhood was made up of camping trips to the lakes or countryside with his siblings, who would all pack into the family's Toyota Dyna. Now they have a family of their own with a young daughter, Teddie, who loves to explore as much as they do.
