Re: Questions on trip to Tasmania

by lifemoveon

Hi all,

Hope to ask some advice from everyone here.

I am planning a trip to Tasmania in April this year. From my internet research, the following is my proposed itinery:

Day 1 – 2
Mount Wellington
Salamanca Market

Day 3
Port Arthur

Day 4
Cradle Mountain

Day 5
Gordon River

Day 6 - 7

Day 8
Wine Glass Bay

Day 9
Back to Hobart

May I ask if the plans above are too ambitious? Or too relaxed? Are there any 'must go' attractions that I missed out?

Would you have any recommended motels to stay at the various locations? Any good restaurants to dine at?

Also, I would like to know if its cheaper to rent a car in Tasmania or Melborne?

Hi there, would it probably better to visit Port Arthur after Wine Glass Bay, i suppose. Are u gonna visit Cradle Mountain Nat. Park from Lake St. Clare, are u? In this case you'll probably have more time visiting Port Arthur before coming back to Hobart. It's also a quite long trip from Launcheston to Wine Glass Bay, because then you'll need some time to walk and visit the national park, so you could leave Laucheston in the second day on afternoon, visit Bay of Fire and stay overnight in St. Helens, then move in the early morning to Wine Glass Bay.
Hope would helpful. Roberto

I would be quite a long drive from Port authur to Cradle mountain, I would suggest staying overnight at cradle mountain and spending a day there beofre driving to Launceston or go to Launceston first.

Thanks so much for your kind advice.

May I know how about accomodations? Any good motels to recommend at each of these locations?

Also, how about car rental? Assuming I'm going for a 2L sedan, how much would I have to pay per day? Would it be cheaper to rent from Melborne?

Thank you.

Yep agree I have done a similar trip in Tassie, It is quite a drive from Strahan to Launceston. Also watch out for snow in the Cradle Mountain area, we actually got snowed in Late September so i imagine that April is not out of the question either. I would say that you will be moving fairly quickly to get all this done.

Hope this helps Matt

Oh forgot to say have a look here for car hire, I rented straight from Launceston and prices were fine.

There are countless great restaurants, in my humble opinion, the food is one of the highlights of tasmania.

Travel Tips for Hobart

A walk around the harbour is...

by pkhill

A walk around the harbour is breathtaking. The water is as
blue as the Caribbean (but a lot colder) and the air is the
cleanest you have every breathed. The boats make a wonderful
backdrop to a fantastic walk. The entire town was a pleasant surprise - not full of tourist traps with a wonderful 'must see' museum.

Maria Island

by seamandrew

Just a bit north of Hobart, is the small town of Louisville which is where you can take the ferry across to Maria Island. There's a small town (village really) n the Island called Darlington but the rest of the island is laced with trails for the eco-tourist to explore. This picture, from right across the Prosser Bay, was about as close as we got to the island but we read the hiking there was excellent. Time didn't permit for us to go this time, but we will next time!

Salamanca Market

by marsvolta

I'm not going to tell you the history, days it is on and what times or whatever... I will tell you to try and get there before 1pm to get the most of it, that it is always crowded, that most stalls close if it is raining, it has the most arty and funky people in all of hobart, you can buy lots of weird food and handmade originial items. As well as this, the actual buildings that people go to look at, actually contain cafes and galleries! And BEHIND these is another courtyard with more carfes and shops and restaurants. There are a few little walkways and alleys in between the front and back which contain second hand book/clothes stores, a theatre and cafe, and a photography shop. TRY AND GET LOST and you'll find so much there. Plus it's so easy to find your way back to the market, its so bustling and noisy! And the band that plays there is a Chilean band, not Mexican lol :-) and they have their own CDs for sale if you want to buy them.

And remember. it doesn't rain heaps in Hobart, and there are many clear, cool days throughout winter... you forget all about the cold anyway at the markets cos there's so much to see!

Cadbury Chocolate Factory tour

by balhannah

We did a combination tour (Cruise/Coach/Chocolate Factory)

TheCadbury Visitor Centre in Claremont.....Firstly you are told about how chocolate is made and the history of Cadbury and a short film showing the production in the factory.
Then, you are taken for a walk through the factory and given some samples to try (very few, you certainly won't put on weight and get fat!)
Of course, you end up at the Cadbury souvenir shop, the Cadbury chocolate shop and the Cadbury cafe

A word of warning. Just because chocolates are on sale at the factory, doesn't mean they are cheap, BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT CHEAP. KNOW YOUR RETAIL PRICE BEFORE YOU BUY!

Regular opening hours:
September to May - Monday to Friday 8am to 4pm.
Last presentation is 3pm.
June, July and August - Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm.
Last presentation is 2pm.

Adult: $7.50
Children 12 years and under: $4.00
Family: Two adults and up to three children (12 years and under): $17.50

If you have time, take a side...

by seagoingJLW

If you have time, take a side trip from Hobart to visit Port Arthur, the site of the infamous penal colony. You can read a good account of it in the 1873 novel (first serialized in 1871) by Marcus Clarke called For the Term of His Natural Life.

Those were horrendous times.
