Re: Accomodations

by lifemoveon

Hi all,

Thanks for your kind comments.

I have booked a trip to Tasmania from 10th April - 20th April.

Should I book all the accomodations prior to the trip? Would the internet rates be competitive compared to the walk in rates?

I served the net and saw that innkeepers accomodation cost about A$120 per night. Is that the best rates available?

Hope for more advice as I'm traveling on a budget.

Thank you.

Best regards.

I feel you can get better rates than $120 per night,look up the Tasmanian tourist web site or better still check in with vt members page for their input.

I have family in Hobart so will get in touch with them and see if I can find something for you.

I shall return shortly.

Hi I am back,ok what you need to do is go into vt travel guide and enter Hobart and you will find all you need. My family say $120 per night is a rip off in Hobart.Search around on the net and yes you may need to book ahead because Hobart is a small city compared to other cities but is a popular place to visit.

Good luck

I travelled all about Tasmania and never had to pay those sort of prices - maybe theyve gone up an awful lot! - and I never prebooked in advance either.

There are a lot of what we call 'caravan parks' in Australia or 'motor camps' in NZ and UK which have excellent longterm caravans or cabins for rent as you would a hotel room for much cheaper and usually fully equipped with ensuite and TV. Thats usually how I managed to stay cheaper and you can save money as well by cooking your own meals/organising your own food than restaurant food but also allowing for some occasions of trying local dishes.

you could do a google look up and see if the Automobile club of Tasmania - forget now what its officially called - their version of the AA or RACQ/V/NSW - probably have info on caravan parks around Tasmania.

As you travel around too I have found generally you come across motels advertising prices and so on that youd be happy with rather than prebooking more expensive places.

Check out the wotif site just before you go, sometimes there are some good deals if the hotel believes if will not have a full house. Checking right at the momement may be a bit too early.

Travel Tips for Hobart

Walk through Salamanca Markets...

by tazmaniak

Walk through Salamanca Markets on a Saturday morning, and again during the week (to see the change!). Hobart's Waterfront has the best memories for me .. its such a calm, peaceful and beautiful place with one of the finest deepwater harbours in the world.

Tour of Tasmania!

Bruny Island

by balhannah

Bruny Island is only 40minutes by car from Hobart, then a 20minute Ferry ride from the town of Kettering. The cost of the ferry is $25 for a car in 2008.

There is a visitor centre at the Ferry terminal at Kettering. You can stay on the island or do a day trip as we did, found this was enough for us, it depends on what you want to do.

Bruny Island is made up of a North and South Island, being joined by a narrow strip of land called "The Neck." Native wildlife is here, and there is boardwalks and viewing platforms so you can see the Shearwaters and Penguins. An interpretation board is here, and in peak times, a Ranger will be there at dusk.
The best time is September to February.
The Neck lookout is here. The countryside on the island is gentle, with wild coastlines and raging surf. Beaches are quiet, you see farmhouses and lighthouses.

It has a rich heritage of Sealers, Whalers and Explorers.
AUSTRALIA'S 1ST APPLE TREE was planted by William Bligh, of the Bounty fame, in 1788 at Adventure bay. It thrived in the climate, and later became the Nation's orchard, Tasmania is known as the "Apple Isle" The Bligh museum is a privately run museum at Adventure Bay.

A full day tour of Bruny Island can be done from Hobart, or Bruny Island Charters has eco tours, departing from Adventure Bay. Inala Tours have Birdlife and Wildlife tours.

There is plenty to keep you busy here for a full day or more..............

Tasmanian Residents Are Interesting

by kurrent1

The Salamanca Markets are a wonderful place to get to know individuals selling their wares or displaying their talents. Take time to meet the pen maker, the Tasmanian writer, the student from the local high school playing music or the student selling items from China or Tibet who attend the University of Tasmania. The items you buy or the pictures you take will be much more meaningful to you. You may even make a life-long friendship, who knows?

Botanical Gardens

by iandsmith

The best things in life are free; so the saying goes and the Botanical Gardens in Hobart certainly add credence to that statement.
The Gardens are open every day from 8am to 5pm/6.30pm and entrance is free.
There's a visitor's centre with giftshop and restaurant inside the gardens and a toilet nearby. More often than not there's an exhibition on to add even more to your visit. Spring is obviously a good time, along with autumn but these shots were all taken in late summer.
You can catch a bus from the CBD or the red tourist bus regularly stops outside the gate.
They have an eclectic display of varied vegetation from around the world and it's situated on a hillside with nice veiws over the Derwent.

Tessellated Pavement - Forestier Peninsula

by Kate-Me

The Tessellated pavement on the Forestier Peninsula was not mentioned in any of my guide books. We just found it as a dot on our old map, and signposted when we got to Tasman?s arch.
It was well worth the couple of kms detour from there to see. From the bottom of the small cliffs to the edge of the water in quite a long strip,the pavement stretches, looking for all the world like evenly sized man-cut cobble stones, but it?s completely natural.
