7 days in Tasmania

We are going to Tasmania for the 1st time in December, will start at Hobart and leave in Launceston. Don't think we can see everything within 7 days, any suggestions of must see or do and suggestions on itinerary?

Will you be renting a car or are you hoping to travel by public transport?

If renting a car, you should start by reading the Top Questions on the right of this page, especially those titled Top 10 Must Sees and Touring by Car.

If hoping to use public transport, this may help in the initial planning stages: tripadvisor.com.au/Travel-g255096-s303/Tasma…

Thanks Luigi. We will rent a car; as we are travelling with 2 elder couples, so sort of wanted to go around in a slower pace. Thinking of staying in Hobart for 3 nights, 1 nights in Swansea (most places in Coles bay and Bicheno are sold out already), then to Launceston and Cradle Mountain.

Think we will go to Mt Field national park for a day, stopping by the Curringa farm.

Then I can't really decide if we should op for one of the island cruises or to Port Arthur on the 2nd day. Any recommendations?

Will do the Salamanca market on the 3rd then drive to Swansea, will it be too much if stop be Richmond, Sorrell, Port Arthur before Swansea?

From Swansea to Launceston, is it worth to stop over Bicheno?

Not sure if I'm trying to do too much...

You could do a full day tour from Hobart to do the fast boat trip around the Tasman peninsula combined with a trip to Port Arthur: tasmancruises.com.au/tours/full-day-tour.aspx

That would make the trip to Swansea easier. You could go via Richmond and Sorell Fruit Farm.
