OUR STORIES

In our 10th Anniversary festival we are proud to focus on Our Stories as Tasmanians and Australians. The festival has always been a community-run event and each year our volunteers are the friendly, helpful face of the festival. This year, Our Stories is supported by a proud Tasmanian, who believes in our people, our buildings and our community by valuing the past but welcoming the future.

And BOFA is proud to be a partner in the Great Regional City Challenge that aims to make the Launceston region one of the great regional centres of the world. Voting on the 50 projects submitted is open now for NE Tasmania residents. VOTE NOW
