Plenty of gas stations along any route and plenty of things to see in these towns, distances are short.

Robert, thanks so much for the quick reply.

The google routing shows me it's going to be a 5 hours dirve from Freycinet to Cradle Mountain; I am thinking if you have a shorter route to suggest. We want the fastest route to get to Cradle Mountain and areas, we will then stay for 1 night at Cradle Mountain, and drive to Launceston with a stop at Sheffield the next morning for 2 nights in Launceston, then return to Melbourne.

Rob has given you the shortest route.

It goes from Coles Bay to the Tasman Highway (A3), south to the intersection with the B34. Follow the B34 to Campbell Town. Head north from Campbell Town up the Midland Highway (A1) to Perth, then take the B52 which rejoins the A1 (now called the Bass Highway) a bit further on. Follow the A1 to about Elizabeth Town, then take the turnoff through Railton B13) and Sheffield following the signs to Cradle.

It'll take 5 hours without stops.
