Calling all MOFOs!

If you are coming to take a closer look at MAN and reflect upon humanity, why not reflect on your knowledge of this incredible place too!  Take Launceston’s Natural Heart tour around First Basin, the location of MAN by Parer Studio and Launceston’s very own artist Amanda Parer, Parer Studio’s principal creative.  This tour provides the ideal essentials for your visit to the Cataract Gorge and connects you to the natural wonder of this city wilderness.

For those of you who are taking the morning meditation in the Fairy Dell at 10am, come along on The Jewel of Launceston tour, starting at 8:45am at Kings Bridge and walking into the First Basin by foot, learning as you go. The tour ends at 9:45am giving you just the right amount of time to get to your meditation.
