U can take a ferry to Tasmania from Port Melbourne. Easily accessed by trams from the city.

U can then rent a car from there.

Christmas is a busy period. Make sure your travel arrangements is finalised lor. If you are pretty....I got spare room hor.

If not, my doggy shed also very comfy ...........:sticktong




Your faithfully,
:devil:

Ok, if you are into nature/wilderness ..... a beautiful place where little or no pollution. It used to called Van Dieman's Land. Place to put all the ang moh convicts. U lookin for a hubby there har?

Nightlife? definitely outclassed by Sydney or Melbourne.

How's the weather during end of dec? Just nice?
I was there Dec last year. Weather's just nice - not too cold and not too hot - about 17C. But bring a windbreaker, esp if you're thinking of visiting places like Mt Wellington where it can get chilly.

As someone mentioned, bring lots of photo gear - it's a photog's paradise!

Depends on how long you will be there, there are some places you die die must go.

1) Cradle Mountain
2) Freycinet National Park - Wineglass Bay
3) Hobart, Salamanca market (on sunday or saturday? can't remember)
4) Port Arthur

What you can do is start off from Hobart, drive eastward towards Port Arthur then go up north to Freycinet then go to Launceston, Cradle Mountain, got time can drop by Devonport, then down to Lake St Clair area..then Queenstown..then down south back to Hobart.

Can take 1 week or more. But you will never regret it.

if you're going free-and-easy, plan for a seafood dinner at The Drunken Admiral or at Mures while in Hobart. Salamanca Market is a Saturday morning thing if i remember correctly.

Dun rate those chefs in Aust so highly lah, you just haven't met the right chef niah....all depend on your taste bud.

Some like salty, crispy, hot&spicy...dipped with tartare sauce...or served plain with vinegar/lemon.

It is just the potatoes they used are fresher or more varieties.......fish and chips must used certain potatoes lor.

Accom at Cradle Mountain is limited and more expensive than other areas. Recommended to park car at the main carpark and take the free shuttle bus.
