Tassie for teenagers ?

We are heading down in late August, will do the usual main destinations, but I was wondering if there is something special for 12 & 15 y.o. teenagers down in Tassie ? Is the Tahune eagle glide worth doing, and the skywalk ? Glow worm caves ? Any adventure stuff like you get in NZ ? They are good kids and will tag along without too much complaint as their parents play tourist, but what's fun for kids in Tassie ?

Try to be in Hobart on Saturday morning - the Slamance Market is fun for teenagers.

As someone else mentioned, the Huon Jet boat rides (and I think they do helicoprters too) would be a sure fire hit with teenagers. Its only about 40 minutes from Hobart too from memory...an easy drive.

I also like the Mt Wellington descent that you can do by pushbike.

The company picks you up from Hobart, suply all gear and you ride down the hill. Its a really different way of doing the trip. August will be cold though so if you go ahead then I suggest you pack some nice (but unattractive) thermals!!


BTW I agree with the other poster re: Dismal Swap. Yawn.
