Hi, I've been reading the forum, but still a little lost when planning the itinerary for my family of 2 A and 3 K (6, 11, 13yrs) for our early december holiday. I am hoping to let the older kids experience scuba diving, glowworm caves at Hasting, mountains and whitewater rafting, but dont seems to be able to fit them into 7 days.
We are flying in and out of Hobart, arriving on Thur and departing on wed. We intend to rent a car. Could your give me your advice on the following itinerary? Is it too much....there is so much to see and do....but only 7 days...:(
Thur- arriving at 1.05pm, pick car and drive towards Port Arthur. May stay at Eaglehawk or port arthur.
Fri - Explore Port Arthur, possible to do scuba diving? late afternoon, to drive towards Hobart. overnight at Hobart or somewhere near Hobart
Sat - Salamanca Market, Mt Wellington and whatever else. Drive towards Hasting.
Sun - explore Hasting. Do the Glowwarm tour. Drive towards Mt Field. Night at Mt Field.
Mon - Explore Mt Field.
Tues - Drive towards Hobart. Visit Cadbury Factory. Night at Sorell?
Wed - Visit Sorell Fruit farm. Towards airport for 1.35pm plane home to Melbourne.
Is this doable? Too much or too little. We are there from 6 to 12 Dec. Should I book accomodation in advance or there should be vancancy that we can be flexible with our itinerary.
Thank you in advance.
