tunapri, by Caleb Nichols-Mansell is our inaugural art projection onto the Table Cape lighthouse as part of Moonlight stories. Through projected visuals in the form of original paintings, drawings, digital illustration, Caleb tells the story of country, providing an intimate journey into the hearts and minds of the Tasmanian Aboriginal community.
Capture the sounds and scenes as you hike along a trail from the Table Cape lookout to the Table Cape lighthouse. Rachel Meyers, a renowned Tasmanian sound artist, composer and musician recorded and created the “listenings” of Table Cape and its surrounds which can be accessed through a downloadable app. The app tracks your location on the walk and triggers the soundscape as you wander the windswept cliff line. The walk takes approximately 30 minutes one way, taking your time to enjoy the sensory experience. It is free of charge and available at any time.
Self Guided wander into Wynyard’s hidden history. Take a moment to follow the footsteps of those who have gone before you. Who were they? What were their lives like?

Coming to the North West of Tasmania in winter is a refreshing treat. The weather may be wild and rugged but you will feel warm and welcome. We are the agri-tourism mecca offering rich soil, the freshest air (literally) and crystal waters. All this is a recipe for great hospitality, indulgent food and educationally rich experiences.
The magnificent plateau of Table Cape is by far one of the North West’s most remarkable natural wonders. Sitting at 180 metres high, ‘The Cape’ – as locals refer to it – dominates the Wynyard coastline and offers spectacular views of Tasmania’s coast and agricultural farmlands. The air is crisp and the rich, chocolate brown, volcanic soil is highly productive which makes an extraordinary place for produce to be grown.
