We are heading for Tasmania on a 9 day fly/drive arriving 9/5/13 to 17/5/13. Flying in and out of Hobart. We are considering basing ourselves in Hobart and Launceston during this period and visiting places of interest from there. Could anybody advise the best way to visit the most popular places maximising our time. Also which would be the best river cruise to do? We are looking at places around the east coast and midlands (not the west coast at this stage). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
