The wife and I are going to travel through Tasmania in the fall. Starting in Hobart, we are looking at the following;
Day 1 Salamanaca market, harbour, historic buildings. Skipping MONA gallery.
DAy 2: Drive to Port Arthur to see Tesselated pavement, Tasman ARch, Pirates Bay. Overnight in Port Arthur (B&B hopefully).
Day 3: Tasman Island boat tour. Stay in Port Arthur or back to Hobart.
Day 4: Wineglass Bay (plane tour maybe). Drive to Bicheno
Day 5: Drive to Launceston. Check out sites (?, suggestions). lunch, then drive to Mount Field, taking inland route. Drive to Hobart, overnight
Day 6: Fly to Melbourne early a.m.
Does this sound like the best use of time for sites where we are driving? Driving to the west coast of the island would take too long, so we opted to drive up the east coast, then central. We chose Mount Field, as it looks quicker to get from lower forest to the high alpine peaks in the space of 1 day. The bigger parks in the Tasmanian plateau look like you really need a good 2 days due to the hugeness of that park.
Thanks for feedback. Hope to meet fellow TripAdvisors while passing through there, and the rest of Australia that we are going to see.
