Our plans are coming together for our family trip to Tasmania, which is now less than a week away.
We arrive Friday around 10.30am. So after we get our luggage we will then go and collect our hire car from Selective Car Rentals at Hobart Airport. Since we cannot check into the Wyndham Resort at Seven Mile Beach until 4pm, we thought that we would have a drive up through the Historic township of Richmond.
We want to especially see the famous historic Richmond Bridge and stop for some classic photos. All we need is a nice clear day so that we can capture the reflection of the bridge in the water.
Old Hobart Town is also in Richmond so we may go and check that out. This attraction includes models of how life used to be in the Hobart area back in the 1820’s. Old Hobart Town has won multiple awards for this unique tourist destination.
In the afternoon we will stop in Sorrell to do some grocery shopping, which we will take back to the resort. After checking in at 4pm we hope to unload the car and then have a relaxed stroll around the grounds of the resort.
Saturday we plan on staying in the Hobart area. Weather permitting we want to go up Mt Wellington and enjoy the view of the surrounds. On a clear day, fantastic views of Hobart and the Derwent River can be taken in.
On Sunday morning bright and early we will set off on a two-day trip. Our first stop will be the Hastings Caves. We will do the cave tour at 11am. We are looking forward to seeing the cave, as it has been many years since we have seen the insides of any cave.
We plan on having a relaxing lunch and afternoon sitting in the Hastings Thermal Spring pool. It will be nice to just sit back and relax for a few hours.
Later in the afternoon, we will drive to the Tahune Airwalk to stay overnight in the Airwalk Lodge. We will have Internet at the Lodge and so hope to publish a post or two while there.
Monday morning we check out of the lodge at 10am and then have a guided tour booked for 10.30am on the Tahune Airwalk. We are looking forward to just taking in the beauty of the Tasmanian forests and bush as we walk high above it all on the man-made walkway at the tops of the trees.
After the Airwalk, we are hoping to each have 2 rides on the Eagle Hang Gliding also at Tahune Airwalk. This would be the ride of a lifetime as none of the three of us have ever been hang gliding and are not likely to in the future! So we will see what happens and share it with you later on.
Monday afternoon we will then enjoy the hour and a half drive back to Hobart. I am sure that we will stop along the way to take photos and video and to absorb the natural beauty that we see along the road.
We should arrive back to the resort at Seven Mile Beach around dinnertime and can then relax before continuing our fun holiday on Tuesday morning.
There are no set plans yet for the second half of our holiday in Tassie, but there are still plenty of things on our list and so there is no doubt that it is sure to be a fun and exciting time.
These last few days before we fly to Hobart are going to be busy, so this may be the last post before we write from the Tahune Airwalk Lodge on Sunday evening.
Until then, remember to Enjoy Life and Enjoy a Tasmanian Holiday!
