We've booked a trip to Tassy this November. We're spending a week moving between Hobart and Launceston, moving by hire car. Thanks to this forum we got ideas on the shape of our trip. We probably won`t be back to Tassy, so we're really keen to make sure we get the most out of our short time here. We'd like to get your thoughts on things we shouldn`t miss on our trip where we are staying, and spots en route between destinations we could drop in to.
About us: young family (2 adults, 2 kids (7 and 1yrs)), 7 days for a self-drive. We like the natural environment (beautiful places, parks, mountains, beaches), some tourist attractions for the kids (aquariums etc), and cute towns and villages, nice places to eat (cafes, pubs suitable for kids, anything with a view).
Our itinerary is (in order):
- 2 nights in Hobart (plan to do Mt Wellington, fish and chips, a few walks, a bit of central Hobart maybe)
- 4 nights in Coles Bay (Freycinet, quad biking, walks on beaches, lazy days. Any particular spots we shouldn`t miss?)
- 1 night in Binalong Bay (beach walk, not sure what else is up here (the beach sold it to us!))
- 2 nights in Launceston (the gorge, potter around Launceston centre...)
