Tasmania trip itinerary update - thoughts appreciated

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

Do take the time to visit the Wall in the Wilderness which is at Derwent Bridge between Hobart and Queenstown. We thought it was one of the highlights of our Tasmanian holiday.
