Did we have a winter in 2020? Not sure. This approaching cooler season is full of promise at The Mill…

Weddings are our thing.

Even before we had our very first wedding, we were rated in the Top Ten venues in Tassie! Two weddings later, let the first couple tell their story:

From the Bride:

‘We had the absolute best day of our lives. It was exactly like we imagined and there is not one thing that we would change. Spring Bay Mill is an amazing place, with even better people.’

From the Parents of the Bride:

“Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff – your welcoming smiles and can-do attitude – it was greatly appreciated. It was a pleasure working with you all. The feedback from the guests about the whole day and venue was summed up in one word – ‘amazing'”

Getting hitched? Better get in quick. The Wedding Calendar is filling fast. More info here

How’s your Mum? Or someone else’s.

The Mother’s Day Pumpkin Harvest Party is on Sunday the 9th of May. You may have heard our Chief Pumpkin Grower and Horticultural Genius Marcus Ragus on ABC Local Radio on Thursday 15th April extolling the virtues of not just pumpkins but also the collective beauty of getting out into nature.

Gardening demos, food & drink, market stalls, kids’ activities, live music from Montz Matsumoto and The Voicestrings, and The Barefood Nellies. Bring your funny, funky, and fresh pumpkins for your chance to win a prize. Book online to for a chance to win the Mum’s Day hamper.

Mum deserves a nice day out. More info here

Got an eye for the Landscape?

Book the Photography workshop with Cam Blake from May 14-16, exploring Maria Island in the day and keeping cosy at The Mill each night.

The package includes accommodation at Spring Bay Mill, transport to Maria Island, catering and above all, Cam’s unique photography skills and experience at your disposal.

Cam says:

“I find exploring and photographing the natural world is a lovely release from all the pressure of the busy world around us. In all my workshops I want to try and pass on this passion and importance of getting outside with your camera to my guests. Photography in nature ticks so many boxes for people’s well-being”

And for something quite a bit different. A Peace Pole Ceremony

Did you know there are at least 250,000 Peace Poles planted in 60 countries? Nup? Nor did your scribe.

A Peace Pole Ceremony is a way of bringing people together to inspire, awaken and uplift. It’s about place and healing the landscape and culture. Beautiful!

On Saturday 15th of May, Tom and Jane Tenniswood have organised a short ceremony at the Mill followed by a BYO picnic overlooking Spring Bay. More information and to register…
