My husband and my two sons (3yo and 4 yo) are off on an 11 day campervan tour of Tasmania from 13-24th January 2015. We have booked a maui campervan and I am now in the process of researching the best itinerary and placing bookings if needed as I heard it is peak season and very busy when we will be there?
My thoughts so far are these:
day one- New Norfolk
day two Strahan
day three and four- Cradle mountain
day five and six- Launceston
day seven- St Helens
day eight- Bircheno
day nine- Swansea
Day 10- Port Arthur
Day 11- Hobart then return van, stay in hotel overnight in hobart in Salamanca (any recommendations here?)
Any advice on whether this is a good itinerary or if people feel I have glaringly left something out. Is it too rushed with two young children?
Also I wanted to know if people would recommend free camping or paying for campsites? I figured we might do a bit of both, so is there any great free spots that people suggest we don't miss or vice-versa.
Thanks in advance for any tips.
