Tasmania 16 days - advise please!

Jump to last reply

We will have 16 full days(17 nights) in Tasmania this September - October. We fly into and out of Hobart. We would love some help with this itinerary!
We're an active senior couple. We plan to spend a few days in Hobart seeing art museums etc., but are primarily interested in day hikes, scenery, plants, animals. We generally like to spend 2 more more nights in one spot so that we can have a full day or more to explore the area. We'll do shorter day hikes. I take the estimated hike time and double it - my husband can't walk by an interesting plant without taking a picture or two, so we would quickly get into trouble on "6 hour" hikes. We plan to hire a car.

Our proposed itinerary -
Day 1 - arrive Hobart 5:30 pm. Hobart 1 night. Find a grocery store to stock up.
Day 2 - Port Arthur one night. Historic site, scenic spots, a short hike.
Day 3 - Port Arthur, drive to Coles Bay. Coles Bay 2 nights
Day 4 - Freycinet NP. Wineglass bay hike. Others?
Day 5 - Freycinet NP, drive to St. Helens. St Helens 2 nights
Day 6 - Explore coast Binalong Bay to The Gardens, St Columba Falls walk
Day 7 - St Helens to Mole Creek 1night. Visit one cave if arrive early enough
Day 8 - Mole Creek - visit caves. Drive to Cradle Mountain 3 nignts
Day 9 & 10 - Cradle mountain day hikes
Day 11 - Drive to Strahan 2 nights
Day 12 - Gordon River Cruise
Day 13 - Strahan to Mt Field. Stop at St Clair Lake for short walk if have time. Fentonbury 2nights
Day 14 - Mt Field NP hikes - the 3 falls and tall trees
Day 15 - Fentonbury to Hobart
Day 16 & 17 - Hobart. Possible day trip to Tahune Forest AirWalk
Day 18 - Hobart AM. Afternoon flight to Sydney

Feedback please! Thanks!!
