Must do things with kids

Hi again oh helpful ones,..

Apart from the wedding that we're coming for, can anyone suggest a couple of must do activities while we're there,.. we only have 2 other spare days so maybe a few 'smaller' things to do closer to the area rather than big long day treks.

We will have a hire car,.. I was thinking maybe the lavendar farm and is there a maze thingo somewhere?

Thanks again,

Kitty

Tasmania Zoo, which isn't far from Rosevears, is good.

Also the Queen Victoria Museum at Inveresk in Launy is very good for kids - and it's free!

A trip to Cataract Gorge, with suspension bridge, chairlift, old hydro-electric station, easy or rambunctious walk options and tame peacocks to aggravate is a "must". Everything's free except the chair lift.

Teenage kids would like Hollybank, but you may need to sell one of them for scientific experiment to pay the entry. Win/win??
