      New Forum Upgrade   03/24/2017

      On behalf of the admin and moderators of the forum we would like to thank you for your patience during the forum upgrade.  We understand that members don't like change, but unfortunately we had to move with the times. There are lots of exciting changes and features to be made in the coming weeks, however, our priority was to get you all back online as quickly as possible. There is a thread in Forum Q & A (accessible via the link below) if there are any urgent issues please post them in there then we can monitor one thread instead of missing posts. Thank you once again The Pom Queen and Cerberus1 ADMIN

Road trip

2 posts in this topic

Thinking of a short road trip to see parts of Tasmania. I will only have 4 days so realise time is very limited. Will be flying in and out from Melbourne and have no preference to which airport to arrive/depart from. Can anybody share any potential places I could stay and sites/hikes to see and do?! It will be towards the end of January as I'll be spending Australia Day in Melbourne and will be looking to rent a camper van whilst there so will be wanting to stay at campsites to keep the costs down.

Thanks :)

Have a browse around this site - it has lots of useful information and will help you to choose which would be your priorities as you won't be able to cover the whole state in 4 days:




Take a note of the distance and drive times in the travel information section as many of the roads are hilly/ mountainous and winding and driving is usually slower than on the flat, straight roads of the mainland. and many people underestimate this.


These top 10 attractions are a good place to start:




I would also add Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (not far from Hobart) if you want to see endemic Tasmanian species....and one of these Pennicott tours if you had longer than 4 days
