Tasting Tassie - November 2016

Jump to last reply

We are 50 something Aussies who've not yet been to Tasmania.
We enjoy local food (especially seafood), history, walking, architecture, nature, art of many varieties. I'd welcome suggestions for staying places, eating places and things to do. I'd like to keep the staying budget at $100 pn, but we can be flexible.

I have booked a flight to Hobart arriving 14.25 on Monday 31/10/16, and the Spirit of Tasmania ferry departing Devonport to Melbourne on Saturday 12/11/16 at 9.00. Nothing else is set in stone.

Here's my rough itinerary -
Hobart 4 nights (Mon - Thurs) stay in Battery Point/Salamanca area. MONA is a must do.

Pick up hire car drive to Bruny Island, stay 1 night (Fri).

Drive to Hobart for Salamanca markets on Saturday morning, then on to Freycinet NP for two nights (Sat & Sun). Stay in Coles Bay or Bicheno ? Or somewhere else ?

Drive to St Helens area for two nights, (Mon & Tues).

Drive to Launceston for two nights, (Wed & Thurs).

Drive to Devonport for one night (Fri) drop off hire car.

What would you recommend or change ?
