      By Australian standards yes it is. A bit like Ireland though in that the roads are smaller and twisty and driving around, especially off the really touristy bits, can take longer than you think.

      Were they from the bakery in Ross? Last time we went we couldn't get near the place for tourists. Will be going in a couple of weeks - hopefully it will be a bit quieter tourist wise.

      Yes, they were indeed. It was quiet when we were there, and we got a table right next to the open fire! Lovely!

      Loved our trip there, Marisa's report is about right, but Google the Wall at Derwent(?) absolutely amazing and also the wood carvings at Ledgerwood, both really recommended and not to be missed if possible.
      There is a really spooky area on Cradle Mountain, covered in lichen.
      Think it might be the Ballroom forest?

      It is but Mures on the Hobart dockside do good fish and chips. Could be very touristy and crowded in January though. It was when we were there.

      This is a good place to start and has suggestions for self drive itineraries. Take note of driving times because roads tend to be more winding, hilly/mountainous and narrow than on the mainland and underestimating driving times is common.

      I'd agree with most on the following list. Obviously you won't cover all in 5 days but it's a good sample which covers the state.

      Yes - like feeding time at the zoo whenever I've been. Nice if you can get a table outside beside the dock on a long summer evening. For the actual food think I prefer Fish Frenzy on Elizabeth Street Pier ( the next one along from Mure's). The Dunalley Hotel and Dunalley Fish Market - on the way between Hobart and Port Arthur - are both excellent for fish and chips meals. For something a little more upmarket there is the Bangor Wine and Oyster Shed nearby.
