We are planning our trip to Tassie for Xmas & New year. We will be travelling by boat & plane but would like some feeback on what our itinerary looks like. There will be a family - 2 adults and 2 children aged 7 & 5. We will have all our camping gear with us but will break it up with other accomodation also.
Arrive Devonport morning of 28th, plane lands 11am in Launceston. Drive down to Hobart. Accom already organised for Hobart.
28/29/30/31 Dec - in Hobart. Plan on spending some time watching the Sydney to Hobart boats coming in, doing the Taste of Tassie festival & possibly a day trip somewhere on the 31st. I have done Port Arthur before and we're not too fussed if we do it again or not. Our main attraction to being in Hobart at this time of year is watching the boats come in.
1st Jan - travel to Strahan. Stay in Strahan 1st, 2nd, 3rd of Jan. We would like to do the Railway and the river cruise - hence why the 3 nights there.
4th Jan - travel to Arthur Pieman & complete the Sandy Cape Track. Plan on 2 nights here.
6th Jan - cradle mountain.
7th Jan - cradle mountain to Launceston flight at lunch time and then Devonport for boat at night.
Basically by staying in Hobart for the length of time we have, we've effectively cut out doing any of the east coast. We wanted to stay in Hobart for New Years with our friends but could be persuaded if the East Coast is so awesome that we cannot miss it!!!
Does anyone have any recommendations for accomodation in Strahan - we could possibly be travelling with another family of 5 so effectively there would be 9 of us in total.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions,
Jo in Melb
