We're planning a return trip to Australia next April, and want to visit Tasmania. We'll (likely) have our daughter, SIL, and two grandchildren (5 and 1) with us. We can spend no more than a week in Tasmania, and are trying to decide whether to base ourselves somewhere and take day trips, or split the week between two places (seems the better option.) We don't care too much about beaches, though the younger ones do; we're interested in native wildlife, scenery, history, etc. Reasonable costs are important, as well.
Suggestions as to must-see areas are welcomed, particularly things the kids would enjoy; the 5-year old is brilliant and loves animals, fossils (dinosaurs, especially) and nature in general. (Dad's a biologist.) My husband and I are fascinated by the native fauna.
Thanks in advance for your ideas (I know we could easily spend a month there, but we do what we can...)
