We are very excited to be heading to Tasmania for a little holiday in February! I've been doing lots of research and have read many great things, but now feel my head is in a whirl! Hoping to get some suggestions to fill in our itinerary and make the most of our adventure. We are travelling with a one year old, so some interesting stops to break up the driving would be helpful. We love nature, food, wine, wildlife (we would love to see a platypus in the wild if possible), history and beautiful scenery...all of which we hope to find in Tasmania!
Accommodation is booked. Rental car is booked. Now I'd really appreciate some help filling in details, places to stop, things to see, good walks and delicious food. Any suggestions appreciated! Thanks so much!
