      What not to miss in Tassie?

      Thinking of a holiday in Tassie (January), is it a good time to visit? What are the things we must do or see. We're planning on hiring a car and probably only going to be about 5 days as will be having a few days in Melbourne on the way home.

      I just want PIO to be a happy place where people are nice to each other and unicorns poop rainbows

      Freycinet national park. Stay at Meredeth House in Swansea. Fantastic hosts!
      Visit Wineglass Bay, wine-tasting locally is fab and just relax around Coles Bay. Absolutely stunning.
      Australia grabs you, and it won't let go!

      There's a brilliant waffle place on the main road south of Devonport if you're going on the ferry. (Their waffles are massive!) And a great bakery for early morning ferry passengers at Elizabethtown.

      Port Arthur really needs a whole day, but if you can't get there early enough, your ticket will get you in the second day for free!

      The Airwalk at Tahune forest was good; 50m up in the tree canopy!! We were there a few months back but I guess it would be even better in summer.

      The great thing about Tassie is that it's so compact so you'll be able to cover a lot of ground.

      We did a tour a few years ago, this article covers all the things that really stuck in my mind:

      Tea and scones, or something more substantial, at the Signal Station at Mt Nelson. Lots of history, and great views too.

      The views from Mt Wellington are pretty good if its clear of cloud at the top!

      Tasmania is nearly as big as Ireland so there is really quite a lot of sight seeing to do. I like to look through the old towns such as Ross and Richmond and a few others. Lots of lovely coastline with some nice little seaside towns then there's mountains, lakes and forests. Plenty to keep you busy Ali.

      "Nearly as big as Ireland" is still pretty small compared to the rest of Australia! I agree there is a lot to see but the good thing is it's all fairly close together by Australian standards.
