I am going in Nov/Dec and my friends, and I are staying at Cozy Cabins. Their website is http://www.cosycabins.com.au/. We are also getting our car through them. I don't know how nice they are, but I am going with two friends from Australia and they said the ones on the mainland are nice. They can also help you with an itineray. They have cabins scattered around Taz. We are staying at four different ones while on our 2 week trip. Hope you have a great trip. Janice

If you can get near to Battery Point, that would be ideal. That's where the best of the history and waterfront are. Just plunge into google and see what comes up.
Cheers.

Travel Tips for Hobart

The Heritage run

by iandsmith

North of Hobart there is a series of villages, all of them historic. They include the famous Ross and Campbell Town amongst others but you'll notice smaller ones just off the highway that are also worth a visit. Jericho, for instance, has the grave of the first Australian born Victoria Cross winner.
Situated 84 kms north of Hobart or 117 kms south of Launceston, Oatlands has the largest collection of sandstone buildings (138) in a village setting in Australia. 87 of these line both sides of the main street.
The town has a very nice relaxed character and feel and provides free camping overlooking a lagoon on the eastern side.
The free self guided walking tour is excellent. Descriptive plaques on many historical buildings are enlightening as well. Oatlands was established as a military garrison in 1827 and, probably its most famous building, the Callington Mill, is the third oldest windmill and one of only four to survive in Australia, was built 10 years after the garrison was established. The mill closed during the 1890's but today is open daily for inspection.
There are self-guided tours available from the tourist information centre and, as the town is pretty flat, that makes a good option.
There are also nightly ghost and convict tours for the more adventurous.
Weeding, no, that's not a verb, it's a proper noun. What the lady's doing is stoning. Please explain?
So, one fine day in Oatlands a lady called Maria (something about her) decided that she would become the saviour of the fences - stone that is. Thus she taught herself about that grand traditional art of dry stone walling. In fact, she became so good at it that at least 13 other ladies in the town also became interested to the point where these days Maria Weeding and the resurrected walls have become something of a minor tourist attraction and received more than a little publicity along the way.

One of the most beautiful...

by photobf

One of the most beautiful spots I was at in Oz, was the southern-most cape of Tazzie..This walk to get there is about 3-4 hours return. Now, I'm not a hiker in any sense of the word, but this was a nice, easy, flat path that started in a tiny place called Cockle Creek. There is a tiny hostel there that was nice and only cost $12. Except for the no-heat factor, which gave me an unpleasant night, but the walk made up for it. At this point, I head to Hobart and those things are there.

Cadbury Chocolate Factory!

by kooka3

If you are a chocoholic -- or even remotely like chocolate --this is a place that you NEED to get to!! The tour lasts about an hour and a half and takes you through a lot of the factory. The guides say you get to go through a mile and a half of it! wow. They start by showing you a movie about the chocolate making process and then you move into the factory. This was a Willy Wonka dream come true, unfortunately minus the Oompa Loompas. :(
They took us into about 6 different processing rooms where they were making 2-3 types of chocolates in each. We got to see everything from the mixing of the chocolate to the packaging. In every room, they gave us samples of whatever they were making. These were generally the rejects -- ie the broken pieces that they couldn't sell. I can't believe how much they gave us. I was so full by the time I left, I didn't want to look at chocolate again -- and I didn't think that was possible!
Cost is bit pricey, but it's worth it for the experience. Adults: A$13.75; children: A$6.60; family A$33 (2 adults and up to 4 children); seniors and concession: A$9.35

Make sure you book at least a day or 2 ahead, expecially in busy tourist seasons. Tours are held at 9, 9:30, 10:30, 11:15, and 1:00 on Mon-Fri. They are closed for a couple weeks around Christmas and New Year's.

Mount Wellington

by kooka3

This mountain overlooks the city. It's nice to look at, but it's better to climb and look from. The view are great. You can see the city and on a good day, the as far as the southwest corner of Tassie.

If you are really up for a hike, climb the mountain. There are roads and paths. The peak is just over 4,000 feet above sea level. However, you can take a bus up. Better yet, make friends with someone who has a car. :)

Visit Port Arthur (Daytime)!

by xuessium

Day tour via Bottom Bit Bus Tours when there was still an option for you to start the tour early and opt out of the night ghost tour.

You will get to see Port Arthur Historic Site, the Tasman's Arch, the Devil's Kitchen (which is a blowhole) and The Tessellated Pavement on the day tour.

Port Arthur was a penal colony and a place associated with grievance, violence and sadness. It began life as a small timber station in 1830 and quickly developed into a major penal settlement by the 1840s. The hey days of Port Arthur were in the 1850s-1860s before eventual decline set in and Port Arthur ceased to be a penal colony by 1877.

Despite fires that destroyed the original structures in 1895 and 1897, the site did not disappear from people's memory. The early 20th century welcomed the first tourists to the region, curious about life in a former penal colony and helped to begin Port Arthur's new lease of life.

No one could visit Port Arthur without remembering the shocking tragedy of 28 Apr 1996 when a man rampaged through Port Arthur, leaving behind a trail of death and injuries. In cruel irony, it added another chapter to the sad history that Port Arthur had carried since the day of its founding.

While you are in Port Arthur, besides roaming and snaking your way through the many wonderfully restored historical buildings, you may also take a boat ride to the Isle of the Dead where many of the officers and convicts were buried. In fact, practically every inch of the entire isle had been dug up and used as graves. Officer's are marked while convict's were forever lost to the earth.

Port Arthur Historic Site is open every day from 8.30am until dusk. The Visitor Centre is open from 8.30am until the close of Historic Ghost tours at night. The first thing most visitors will take note of is the exhibit of visitor's photos exhibiting paranormal activities captured at Port Arthur - don't miss it!!
