Lizzie Smith chose to write a diary about a holiday she took in 1914, which was discovered 100 years later by her granddaughter, Margaret Deacon. The research and re-creation of her journey to Tasmania from Queensland delves into Lizzie's adventures with her friends and her mother during their 38 day holiday.

Many questions remain unanswered. Why did the group decide to travel so soon after the outbreak of World War I, and why to Tasmania? 

Lizzie's diary displays her humble origins as a farmer's daughter. It provides a charming insight into an earlier and gentler era when trains, steamboats and horse-drawn vehicles governed the life of the patient traveller.
