Tasmania trip itinerary update - thoughts appreciated

Jump to last reply

After some further research, we've decided to slow down a tad and spend more time exploring the west coast of Tassie. This is a revised itinerary- any thoughts appreciated. We are into walks, photography, scenery, history and good food!

After some help from a Fodorite I have put together a rough 10 day itinerary of Tasmania. Anything can be changed, as all that is locked in is the flights. I'm concerned I have too much driving.
Arrive late on a Friday night
Day 1 (Sat) - Hobart - Salamanca market, Battery Point, look around Hobart
Day 2 - Hobart
Day 3- leave Hobart early, Mt Field Nat Pk- leave there by about 1 to drive to Strahan.
Day 4 - Strahan West Coast Wilderness train - 9-1, Bonnet island at night.
Day 5 - Strahan - boat trip 9-3. Drive to Cradle Mountain
Day 6 - Cradle Mountain
Day 7 - Liffey Falls / Mole Creek area
Day 8 - Drive to Table Cape Tulip farm - day in this area, maybe to Stanley
This leaves 2 full days before we fly out of Launceston on day 11. We could explore more around the North of Tassie, but not sure where yet.
Any thoughts are appreciated :-)
Thanks
