      Don't know if this has been mentioned: Bridestowe Lavender Estate at Nabowla (north of Launceston) - should be its blooming best in January

      Now you've got me thinking about what is great about Tasmania in January...and I'm thinking berries.

      Christmas Hills Raspberry Farm Cafe at Elizabeth Town on the way from Devonport to Launceston.

      http://raspberryfarmcafe.com/

      But before you stop there if you're driving from Devonport you'd have to stop at the cafe at the House of Anvers (the creation of a master Belgian chocolate maker) at Latrobe. Lots of lovely chocolatey (and non chocolatey) food.

      In other words it's worth the trek though, is it?

      I would have thought something 'more local' just as satisfying. Don't believe fish and chips is totally alien even to a place like Qld.

      Well confirmation then. A two hour plus flight to the Apple Isle, for a crab sarni well worth the effort then.
