Help organizing a Tasmanian road trip

Jump to last reply

I am working on the various parts of our 5 and a half week trip to Australia and New Zealand in October/November in different "chunks". I'd appreciate help with the Tasmania part from all the experts. We'll have 7 nights (could possibly squeeze in one more by eliminating one night from Sydney area). We'll be flying in from Cairns and flying out to Sydney so we can arrive in and leave from either Launceston or Hobart (arriving either mid or late afternoon so we probably want to stay one night wherever we fly into). I'm having trouble figuring out the order in which to visit places without doing too much backtracking or unnecessary driving. Generally we prefer staying in one place at least two nights or longer.
(1) I'd like to include the following places for sure:
Cradle Mountain (2 or 3 nights)
Freycinet Peninsular (area) 2 nights
visit to Huon Valley area
(2)the following places if there is time :
Port Arthur
Tasman Peninsula
(3) Other things equal, I'd prefer to spend time in Hobart instead of Launceston.

Thanks for your help!
