We (2 couples) want to stay in Hobart, Freycinet, Cradle Mountain, Strahan and anywhere in between in Feb/March 2005. 3 to 4 star places would be good. We are there for 10 days and will be driving. Restaurant recommendations are welcome too! Thanks.

I can recommend the Wheelhouse b& b in Strahan - it was sensational and ideal for 2 couples. www.wheelhouseapartments.com.au/

Old Tram Road B&B has 2 lovely rooms and access to the beach in Bicheno about 25 minutes north of the park. Bicheno is the location for a great low key fairy penguin walk. That's why we stayed there rather tha Coles Bay. The Mary Harvey Restaurant across the road had excellent food and wine.

I highly recommend Pelican Bay B&B in Cole's Bay (Freycinet). The B&B accommodates two couples - one upstairs, one downstairs, and there is a shared lounge. We stayed there in October and really enjoyed it. If interested, I suggest you check the rates on Wotif.com, as it's usually listed there at a discount. Lovely hostess, very confortable accommodation and good cooked breakfast.

As far as restaurants in the area, we really enjoyed the Illuka Tavern in Cole's Bay - we dined there every night of our three night stay. We were really surprised at how good the food in taverns and bistros was in Tasmania. They have non-smoking dining areas separate from the bars, which we found to be a nice surprise as well.

The owner of the Pelican B&B can make reservations for you at a popular local restaurant owned by a friend of hers as well as help with bookings for the penguin tour in Bicheno, which is a short drive away.

Amanda -

Forgot to mention how refreshing it is to see someone actually take their time in Tasmania! Seems most people only allow a few days for Tasmania, while it's worth so much more. We spent 16 days there and could have easily filled another 16.

Have a great trip!
