Further research into the fae

We have just come across a great YouTube channel called ‘Hare in the Hawthorn’. If you love faeries, this is for you.

The book has reached Tik Tok

Thank you so much Avalon for the wonderful review.


Terry has been busy creating sketches for Lady Plummage’s approval. Book 2 is looking amazing, but we have so much more to do.

Faeries of Tasmania 2 update

With the amazing reception that the first book is receiving, we are well and truly into book 2. New faeries from different locations around Tasmania, plus we are getting much more information about Edith S Brown. We won’t be able to fit everything we know about her, but we’ll certainly be having some exciting evidence.

We are also working with the Port Arthur Historic Site, with a couple of faery sightings that may be in book 2. We’ll have to see how we go for space. It could push out to a book 3 🙂

Terry is also busy translating some of the descriptions to illustrations.

It’s a busy time here at Faeries of Tasmania.


As we welcome in 2023, we also welcome a year for discovery into more faery interviews. Book 1, which was released last year, throughout Tasmania, introduced Lady Plummage and her endevours to the world.

Book 2 has begun. We delve deeper into Edith’s world and what she was really doing here in Tasmania. Although we don’t have all the answers just yet, we are seeing glimmers of a story that stretches half way across the world.

Book 2 of Faeries of Tasmania.

We are excited to say that book 2 has officially begun.

Lady Plummage has curated more interviews from her vast archives for book 2. We have also enlisted Terry to begin illustrating the descriptions from the faery witnesses.

We’ll have more updates on Edith S Brown in Hobart and hopefully find her connection to the faeries of Tasmania.

Lutruwita, which is the
traditional land owners name given
to this beautiful state of Australia,
holds a few secrets.

Some people in Lutruwita or Tasmania, have witnessed faeries for many years. Some have been merely shadows, whilst others have had closer encounters. Up until now, the sightings have been kept to family dinners and close friends.

Lady Plummage has been collecting sightings of faeries in Tasmania for many years and is now slowly releasing her interviews, describing various faeries around the state. It has taken a while for Lady Plummage to build trust with the witnesses and for them to share their story.

During the interviews the witnesses have given faery descriptions, which have been illustrated by Terry Whidborne. Further illustrations will happen as more sightings are unearthed.

No-one really knows where they have come from or how many reside in Tasmania. They seem, as described by the witnesses, to be varied in appearance.

The original owners of this land say they are not from here. Not originally.

Along with Lady Plummage, is a small dedicated team helping her mission to show the world what others have seen on this amazing little island at the bottom of the world.

Book released

It’s out there, in all great Tasmanian bookshops.


Edith S Brown

Well, we didn’t expect this.

It appears that some readers have recognised Edith’s name in the Faeries of Tasmania book. This has pleased Lady Plummage, as now she may have new information to the life of Edith in Hobart.

Edith is a mystery and any further help to her life or the Frears chocolate brand, would be much appreciated.


Most of the images on this website have been taken by Neil, our local photographer, with exceptions to the odd one from Lady Plummage.

Neil loves wandering through bracken, discovering new areas and new angles. Although as beautiful as they are, we have noticed with his bag full of impressive lenses, they seem mostly to be macro.

‘I do like to get up and close to the subject. You never know what could be hiding behind a leaf, rock or fungi.’ Neil


Neil spends most of his time trekking around Tasmania, finding amazing locations where others would not dare venture. From icy mountain caps, to small rocky islands off the southern coast, he loves it all.

Neil, even though hasn’t personally seen a clear sighting of a faery, keeps an open mind about them. He’s seen the odd strange shape lurking in the shrubs or a blur of something flying past, which he can’t explain. During his downtime, he quite likes collecting coins and often visits garage sales trying to find that elusive coin or vintage camera. He also loves a good meringue from Daci & Daci, Hobart. He’s been part of Lady Plummage’s team since 2019.

Lady Plummage has a certain casual style to her photos. Some would say, candid.

‘Although, some people I have met do need a helping hand with lights and fudgery, I like to keep my images raw and natural, reflecting this unique wilderness.’ Lady Plummage


Originally, Lady Plummage used a Polaroid J33 Land camera, but then moved onto a camera phone, which she only uses for taking photos. Lady Plummage regards her privacy sacred and will visit people if she needs to talk to them.

As Lady Plummage is very busy, we’ve taken every step to make things swift and easy for her to carry out her research.
