Please help finalize our Tasmania itinerary

Jump to last reply

Thank you so much for the wealth of information you've already provided to help us plan the Tasmania portion of our trip in my previous thread: http://www.fodors.com/community/australia-the-pacific/tasmania-feedback-please.cfm And special thanks to FromDC for her wonderful recent trip report that included the island.

With only 10 nights, we understand and appreciate that we will only be able to experience a small slice of the state and are content with it. We could easily spend our entire 3+ week trip to Australia on Tasmania, but there are other experiences we want to live and relive. We know we will be back to Tasmania, as we have returned to Australia.

For this first trip to Tasmania, we want to focus on history, hiking, wildlife, and good food. And we prefer not to always move around.

Please help us finalize our itinerary, which currently is as follows:

Hobart (4 nights) - 1.5 days to visit Hobart and 2 day trips, one to Port Arthur and the other to Bruny Island
Enroute from Hobart to Strahan, a stop over at Mt. Field National Park or Lake St. Claire
Strahan (1 to 2 nights) - Gordon River Cruise, Bonnet Island
Cradle Mountain (3 nights) - day hikes including the summiting of the Cradle itself plus visits with wildlife
Stanley (1 to 2 nights)

Between Strahan and Stanley, which of these two would you choose for a second night? Which town offers more?

I am posting our question on more than one forum (outside of Fodor's) so please excuse the multiple posts if you happen to come across it.

Thank you.
