Hobart and Launceston- 4 days each sound ok?

Jump to last reply

For a trip in March, we'd love to visit Tasmania for several days, probably prior to 5 nights in Melbourne and possibly 2 nights in Ballarat. (As described in a separate post, asking about that!)

Question- if we have 8 nights, how do we split them up? I'd be inclined to take advice read here, which sounds sensible, to fly into one and fly back from the other (to Melbourne), with the bus to get us from one to the other.

Have read lots of posts here and elsewhere, and it sounds like there's plenty to keep us busy exploring each town and also take some day trips via some sort of tour to see the things a bit further out.

It seems though that Hobart could use more time, what with Pt Arthur to visit, maybe a cruise etc. in addition to things in town. Maybe instead of 4 and 4, do 5 and 3? I assume no one would say 8 days is too many??
