What if I told you, you could see a Tasmanian Tiger this weekend… would you believe me?
This coming Saturday is Tiger Track stamps day at Sidespace Gallery! The ‘Two Views’ exhibition has dedicated a whole day for Tiger Track enthusiasts, so be sure to head down to Salamanca Arts centre between 10am and 5pm to be part of the magic! For this day only, you will have the opportunity to gain access to the rarest stamp, the elusive thylacine! This precious stamp is a must-have for your booklet, and you can tell your friends and family you’ve actually caught a glimpse of the supposed extinct animal! In addition to the stamps, you will also have the opportunity to purchase Tiger Track merchandise, including fridge magnets, t-shirts and colouring books. I’d definitely be taking advantage of this amazing opportunity!
Speaking of animals, if there’s one place you should definitely add to your bucket list, it’s Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. Spend an unforgettable day with some of Tasmania’s most beloved native animals, including Tassie devils, koalas and Eastern quolls. If you’re lucky, you may even see a tawny frogmouth! (Although, they can be quite scary looking):
In addition, the sanctuary offers guided tours, which involves an initial tour of the town of Richmond before visiting the reserve. Richmond, one of Tasmania’s most unique and historic towns, where stamps are red hot! To excite you even more, this town is home to the most delicious sweet treats! Check out the ‘Sweets and Treats’ website here to see if they sell your favourite lolly!
I actually visited Bonorong sanctuary when I was young, and let me tell you, it’s a surreal experience letting a wild animal eat from the palm of your hand! I loved learning about the animals while seeing them before my eyes… This activity is definitely a must! What Bunorong now offers that they didn’t before, is a unique stamp! A beautiful stamp symbolising a unique encounter with wildlife…it’s essential to your collection.

Today’s fun fact: Did you know the Tasmanian Tiger wasn’t actually a Tiger? It only earned its name ‘The Tasmanian Tiger’ because of its distinctive tiger-like stripes along its lower back and tail!
