Montana Rotary Friendship Tours Tasmania

 
"When you feed a kangaroo, plan on getting a handfull of kangaroo spit," says Sheila Rice when talking about one of the many Tasmanian experiences she and the Montana Rotary Friendship Group enjoyed.  
 
  "Rotary Friendship Tours are a great way to vacation", says Sheila Rice in talking about her recent Friendship Tour to Tasmania.  The Montana group was able to see parts of Tasmania that are not normally open to tourists such as chrysanthemum pesticide plant and a honey factory.
 
 She also shared that the Montana group's tour was predominantly on the more heavily populated east side of the country as the west is protected natural habitat.  
 
The group took numerous scenic hikes and saw many unique rock formations next to lakes and seaside waterways.  
 
The Tasmanians have a special affinity to Montana because of Thomas Meagher, the first lieutenant governor of the Montana territories, who was condemned to Tasmania by the English for being an Irish rebel.
