Here comes the bride… [0919]

Non-Hipster readers may remember the outrage when we tax payers of Australia purchased Jackson Pollocks’ Blue Poles way back in the ‘70s. It then cost us less than a cent each ($1.3m) and now it is allegedly worth $350m.

So here’s a Blue Poles #2 courtesy of Spring Bay Mill’s battle worn log loading platform.

Limited Edition of only ten prints. Any size you want. Do I hear a bid? Offers to 🙂

And, which soon-to-be-famous photographer out there wants to run our inaugural Photography Masterclass at The Mill? Drop us a line at

Just a week or so ago the venerable Tasmanian Land Conservancy converged upon The Mill to celebrate the saving of the Little Swanport conservation area. The night was dark and stormy but the light and energy shone through in our revamped Tin Shed.

It must be Spring because lurve was definitely in the air at the Hobart Wedding Expo and yes, we were there. Forget the starched shirts. Think unforgettable! Take the whole site over for days of celebration. Enquiries to First in, best frocked up.

Our Conference Facilities are at lock-up stage and looking gorgeous. The Tin Shed can host up to two hundred excited folk in theatre/performance style. The super suave Banksia Room can seat a hundred and fifty for sit down dining or conferencing. It boasts a post-modern commercial kitchen, bar area, views to die for and outdoor areas to connect with The Eagles (not the band, yet). We are fielding booking enquiries for 2020. Test drive us at

Thank you to the photographers: Karen Brown Photography and Louise Dillon.
