Flew into Launceston hired a car [ unexpectedly expensive but however it was over Easter and school holidays] and set off on our first stop Bicheno lovely area lots of beautiful rocks to scramble! over lovely fish and chips not a crayfish lover so skipped that 4 days spent there.Next stop Cambridge just out of Hobart Did Museum lunch at casino ferry to Bruny Island where we bought some really really special cheese $18 for a small piece total rip off however it was very nice. Then on to find the lighthouse travelling on dirt road for ages get there nowhere to park so took some photos and drove back to the ferry. .Did lots of walking in the national parks all spectacular then on to Tarraleah a former camp for the Hydro workers lovely accommodation and very informative 2 days spent there, then on to the west coast we stayed at Zeehan had been there before and wanted to see all the mineral specimens at the museum there the history there is very interesting Last 2 days were spent in Launcestom Cataract Gorge and a cruise on the river all excellent.so that was our trip and we are glad to be home ut thoroughly enjoyed it.
Good idea to vary reviews bannie. It is 16 years since I went there. I too hired a car but was continuously harrassed by log trucks coming up behind me at speed. Hopefully not so much these days. I also missed a flight over Cradle Mountain due to bad weather coming in. There are still some nice spots to enjoy though.
Tasmania we know well My husband has a sister now living there, so we go visit every so often. As they live in Hobart its all around the east side of Tassie we visit, although we went down by the ferry once with our car and drove all the way down from Devonport to Hobart stopping and visiting all the sights along the way. We have also been up to Cradle Mt when it was covered with snow just a great trip. We used to think we would love to live in Tassie but its not a real option with all family up here in Vic, that we tend to see a lot of.
