What is a Mainlander?
Mainlanders, as their name suggests, live on mainland Australia – just to the north of Tasmania.
Living on the Mainland has its perks but it’s easy to get caught up in the scene,
and sometimes Mainlanders just need saving from their ‘Mainlanderness’.
Here are five Mainlander types who we believe would love what Tasmania can offer them…
The Tragic Hipster
Tragic Hipsters value independent thinking and counter-culture more than most. They choose everything based on uniqueness, and dislike labels – dislike being labeled Hipsters in fact – and enjoy the authenticity that their music tastes and vintage clothes gives them.
And here's how to save them
Tragic Hipster Rescue
Tragic Hipsters crave truly authentic experiences; so they’ll love Tassie’s craft beers, cool vintage stores and photogenic scenery (just made for Instagram). They’ll get a thrill from doing our ghost tours and whisky tours, visiting our retro pubs, hanging out in Salamanca cafés and our cinema-slash-café-slash-bookshop.
Prize Pack To Be Won
Experience Port Arthur Historic Site – not only World Heritage-listed, but also the most haunted site in Australia. Prepare for a spine-chilling Paranormal Investigation that will put the frighteners on you.
Stay at Stewarts Bay Lodge – unforgettable, secluded accommodation in a bush setting; a world away from commercialism (yet not too far out of the comfort zone).
Fly return with Virgin Australia and enjoy 3 day car hire courtesy of Red Spot.
