I'll be taking a two week class in Melbourne, and am looking to spend the weekend in between hiking in Tasmania! I am not an avid hiker, but am in good shape, and will be traveling with others that share the same description. I'd just like to be able to see the rainforest and countryside, and maybe hike down to a beach. Really, I'd just like the opportunity to go exploring, without trying to get too crazy, or encouter anything too dangerous.
Is it a good idea to get a tour guide, or can someone recommend a good tour company that does day hikes?
I am also open to other suggestions of how else to spend the weekend! Someone had recommended i go to Salamanca markets,but I'm much more interested in seeing the natural landscape that Tasmania has to offer rather than doing some crowded shopping.
