We (2 adults + 4yo and 2yo) are in Tasmania for 16 days in October (arrive Hobart, depart Launceston). We have the first 7 nights in Hobart. 2 days for sightseeing/day trips such as Port Arthur, then 4 days conference for me, whilst wife and kids potter around Hobart. Then 9 nights to fill.
We were thinking:
3 nights Strahan - chance to do cruise and railway
2 nights Cradle Mountain
2 or 3 nights Launceston
1 or 2 nights Farm Stay - ?where
Questions I have:
1. Am I making a mistake going to the West Coast - is East Coast better or worse for young kids?
2. Is there a farm stay that people would highly recommend? - important that there are farm animals for the children - preferably somewhere between or near the above destinations. Or should we forget the farmstay and add extra nights to the above destinations.
3. Is there a destination that the kids would absolutely love, that we have missed above, and we should go out of way to see?
Thanks in advance for your help.
