Camping and Kayaking DEC 2007

by cybergenic

hi there, I am finally going to carry out a dream of mine and head to Tasmania to do some kayaking.
Can anybody offer any tips?
I will have my own car, tent and kayak.
Nothing too extreme but want to get a good taste of the Tasmanian wilderness from the perspective of the water.

HI! Mate:

Had a mate who cycled, tented and roughed out the great outdoors at the SW National Parks in Taz a few years ago. He did not kayak but I thought if it's the great outdoors, maybe that could be a place to start....but unfortunately, I could not offer any more info....

There are many great places to kayak in Tasmania. Is it a sea kayak or regular kayak?

Try checking out the Freycinet National Park on the east coast. If you plan to camp there though it is a good idea to book in advance as it is very popular in the summer holidays.

Travel Tips for Hobart

Hobart Visitor's Center

by ATXtraveler

Hobart's Visitor Centre is located on the corner of Davey and Elizabeth Street in the CBD of the city. Although most of the information you would need for your trip is available online or at the airport when you arrive, it can still be a pretty valuable place to book your tours or find out additional information.

Also if you are coming in from Antarctica by troller, you can always pick up more information there about accomodation!

Most people completly forget...

by Mike_Ashy

Most people completly forget that tasmania actually has snow! Even though it doesn't get much Ben Lomond in the north east of the state (3hrs form hobart) can be a bit of fun with some mates. As you can see, if its sunny, then you can almost ski in a tee shirt!

THe hill as 6 lifts about half are t bars and the other half are pomas

As far as terain goes it can be very limited. However, you can almost always find a decient piece of fall line to play in.

Whatever the conditions its better than not skiing al all!

A perfect panorama

by Steve-H

At 1270 meters Mount Wellington towers over Hobart and is visible from just about everywhere. It was suggested that we take a trip up as the weather was fine and the views should be good, they weren`t wrong. Its a long slow drive, the roads are often closed in winter and the following day there was to be a race from the casino in the city to the summit with the winner expected to arrive after about 4 hours.

Take a stroll along Franklin Wharf

by xuessium

Hobart is essentially a port. Franklin Wharf is Hobart's waterfront where fishing and sailing boats dock and where you may find an abundance of seafood cafes and restaurants.

Walk the entire length of Franklin Wharf and smell the saltiness of the air. Fill your lungs with the freshness of marine zest. Watch (and watch out) from gulls flying high over your head, screaming away at each other. Take your camera and pry out breathtaking photos. Gaze silently at the many yachts and boats bobbing away with the tides. A good place to get away for some quiet moments, pack in your thoughts and chew upon your ideas. Or grab a love one and share some intimate moments together.

by xuessium
