Old Tasmanian HotelIn just 11 short days Greg, Tehillah and I are off for an 8-day holiday in the gorgeous state of Tassie! I have been busy researching online to find out some of the wonderful things we can do and places we can visit while on our holiday in Tasmania.

None of us have ever been to Tasmania before and so we are excited about this break.

There is one disappointment and that is that my mum will be unable to join us on this trip. When we booked the flights and accommodation a few months ago, mum was also coming with us, but since that time mum has had to go into hospital for surgery on her foot and so can’t make it this trip.

My mum had previously been to Tassie 50 years ago when she was 17 years old and so we had planned to bless mum by taking her back fifty years after you first visit, but this plan will now need to be delayed until mum is well and can travel again.

At this stage we are considering the following places, but this may change as we add in more places or re-plan each day of our trip.

Tasmanian Sites to Visit

  • Historic Port Arthur Convict Ruins
  • Mt Wellington (we are hoping for snow!)
  • Tahune AirWalk
  • Hastings Caves & Thermal Springs
  • Historic Richmond Bridge
  • The Hobart Rivulet Tour – underneath Hobart
  • Cadbury Visitor Centre
  • Cascade Brewery
  • Russell Falls, Mt Field National Park
  • Cradle mountain
  • Lake St Clair National Park
  • Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, Hobart
  • Port Arthur Cruise

We will be staying at Wyndham Resort at Seven Mile Beach and using this as our base for our daily treks.

So even though the outside temperatures may be 12 degrees or so we should still be able to have a swim and spa. We will just need to be ready for quick dash back to the room for a hot shower once we get out!

As each day goes by the 3 of us are getting more and more excited with the anticipation of our upcoming holiday!

So keep an eye out for any updates as we get closer to the time of our vacation and as we write blog posts after we visit each location.

In the next blog post we will have a look at our second visit to the Coffs Harbour Pet Porpoise Pool when Greg and I went back on another day when it was not raining. We just wanted to compare the two visits to this marine park to see if there was much difference with a fine day or rainy day. So watch out for this post.

Until next time, Remember to Enjoy Life and Enjoy Travelling the World.
