The Very Best of Things to see and do in Tasmania

If you haven’t been to Tasmania you should start planning a trip and do it. It really is one of Australia’s travel destination highlights.

The great benefit of travelling Tasmania is that everything is so close. You don’t have to drive far to reach another amazing location and therefore you can pack a lot into a short time.

With good planning you can see so much, regardless if you are flying in to Hobart or catching the Spirit of Tasmania and arriving by Ferry at Devonport.

The North and East coasts are warmer, less windy and have a higher population concentration. The South West of Tasmania has a lot of winding mountain roads, steep inclines and slow travel. It is generally colder and more sparsely populated.

There are so many varied but fantastic places to stay and so many people travelling by different modes of transport. We saw a lot of people traveling by Motorbike around the island as well as cars, campervans and caravans.

Tassie offers an incredible amount of unique and interesting things to see and do. You’re visit to the Apple Isle is guaranteed to be amazing. And the people are so friendly.

When planning to visit Tasmania, ensure each of these are included in your must see list. These are the Best of the Best.

On top of Mount Wellington

The capital city of Tasmania is Hobart, located in the South East corner of the state. Hobart is protected from the regular windy conditions from the West by Mount Wellington which stands 1200m high. It snows at the top of Mount Wellington and is approx. 10 degrees cooler than at ground level. They say you take 1 degree off for each 100m you travel up the mountain. The views are endless taking in the Tasman Bridge, Derwent River, Bruny island and so much more.

The Tasman Bridge in Hobart is a vital part of their infrastructure as it links the city both sides of the Derwent river. The Bridges importance was tested in 1975 when a bulk carrier taking zinc ore up the river crashed into the bridge taking out the 18th and 19th pylons and segregating the city.

Sadly, 12 people died from this disaster.

Drinks at Cascade brewery

When in Hobart also visit the Salamanca markets, open every Saturday and take an afternoon out to relax at the Cascade Brewery. Established in 1832, the Brewery survived a devastating fire of southern Tasmania in 1967 and with the help of locals, they were back brewing again within 3 months. Today it’s history is revealed through tours of the brewery and tasting of their fabulous range of Beers and Ciders.

Hobart is also the home of MONA, the Museum of Old and New Art. This is a fascinating look at the creative ideas and completions from artists with bursts of colour, imagination and thought provoking pieces of art. Catch the Mona Ferry from Hobart dock and cruise the Derwent River for a fantastic entrance.

Richmond Bridge is a historic bridge which is Heritage listed and just 25kms from Hobart. It is the oldest bridge still in operation in Australia. It has a very English feel and a beautiful park setting perfect for enjoying a picnic lunch. Take a walk through the old town where the buildings have so much character and the iconic pubs and local shops are fun to explore.

Photo7

If Cascade Brewery isn’t enough Cider for you, a visit to Willie Smith’s Apple Shed at Grove just outside of Hounville and just 30 minutes south of Hobart, is a perfect location. Visit the Museum and take a self guided tour through the history of Tasmania’s Apple industry through the eyes of the Smith family.

Photo8
The Narrow Neck, Bruny Island

While south of Hobart, now is the perfect time to take the 15 minute ferry from the town of Kettering to Bruny Island. The island is made up of 2 small islands linked by a narrow strip of land known as the Narrow Neck. It is here as day turns to night that Penguins come up the beach to their burrows after a day out feeding. During the day, go to the top and take in the incredible views from the lookout.

Photo9
Photo10
Pennicott Adventure Cruises

Adventure Bay on Bruny Island is stunning and also where you can take the multi award winning Bruny Island Cruise with Pennicott Adventures. The Cruise takes you along the wild East coast of the island to take in caves, amazing natural sculptures of the cliffs and see big Fur Seals, wild dolphins and even Humpback Whales when in season.

Photo11
Photo12

There is so much more to Bruny Island including Cape Bruny lighthouse, Bruny Cheese Co, Bruny Island Chocolate Factory, Bruny Island Berry Farm and Bruny Island Premium Wines. Spend at least a couple of nights on the island and you won’t be disappointed.

Photo13
Port Arthur

The East Coast of Tasmania is the gift that keeps on giving. Heading north from Hobart will take you to Port Arthur, a historic convict settlement site where you walk around the grounds and take tours while learning all about the convict history of Tasmania.

Photo14

Pennicott Adventures also offers a Tasman Island Cruise which is another great tour worth completing. Here you will also visit Devils Kitchen, Tasman Arch and Tasman Blowhole which are also ideally visited by land for another perspective.

Photo15
The Tassellated Pavement

Tassellated Pavement is a geological phenomenon you need to see before you enter Port Arthur. These are tiled rocks formed over millions of years of ocean and wind movement leaving indelible markings on the rocks resembling pavements.

Photo16
Photo17
Friendly Beach (top) and Coles Bay in Freycinet National Park

Freycinet National Park is north of Port Arthur and no trip to Tasmania is complete without visiting this truly beautiful region with gorgeous beaches and fantastic walking tracks that will provide views that will leave you speechless. Friendly Beach is the first you will discover and it’s definitely worth seeing. Next is Coles Bay, a seaside holiday village offering stunning views over the mountains of the national park, crystal clear waters and a great base to explore the region.

Photo18
Photo19
Wineglass Bay (top) and at Cape Tourville

Wineglass Bay is the pinnacle. A 30 minute hike up the mountain brings you to the lookout with breathtaking views of this gorgeous sheltered bay, a perfect boating haven. A further half hour walk will take you to the beach to absorb all its beauty. Of course, this means you have a 1 hour return trip back to the carpark or you can take a Wineglass Bay Cruise and visit in style.

A short drive from Wineglass Bay will take you to the Cape Tourville Lighthouse. From here you can witness the most incredible ocean views and look out over rolling mountains. You may see Humpback Whales, Dolphins, Birds in a feeding frenzy or ships as they pass on by.

Between Wineglass Bay and Cape Tourville is Sleepy Bay. Take the track for a short walk along the rugged coastline with views overlooking the Bay until you reach Sleepy Bay beach. Here you find big hollowed rocks to climb in, red algae covered rocks and clear ocean waters from the beach.

There’s so much to see and love about Freycinet National Park

Photo20
Ice Creams at the Pondering Frog

Just 400m from the turnoff to Freycinet National Park is The Pondering Frog, a fantastic little shop with the most amazing ice cream I’ve ever tasted. I had the Berry mix and it is to die for. Do yourself a favour and stop for a treat.

Photo21
Fishing at Spring Beach

Further north will bring you to the small town of Orford. Turn right and follow the beach just a further 5 minutes back south to our favourite beach in Tasmania, Spring Beach. The beach has the clearest water I’ve ever seen, you can see directly through the waves like they aren’t even there. With Maria Island as a backdrop and fantastic Salmon fishing from the beach, Spring Beach was easily our pick for the best beach.

Photo22
Photo23
Bay of Fires

The top North East of the island offers the Bay of Fires, a series of spectacular beaches. Base yourself at Swimcart Beach and explore these magnificent beaches where red rocks make an amazing location to sit and absorb the views. The sunrises from Bay of Fires are truly exquisite. Drive north and discover some of Australia’s most stunning beaches.

Photo24
Russell Falls, Mt Field National Park

Heading West of Hobart brings you to the Mt Field National Park. There’s a range of walking trails however the most popular one is past the fallen trees and flowing waters to Russell Falls. These falls are a tiered drop from the streams above cascading down the hillside. Take the steps up and find Horseshoe Falls and a view of Russell Falls from above.

Photo25
The Wall in the Wilderness

Derwent Bridge is where The Wall in the Wilderness is located. Local Artist, Greg Duncan, features carved timber walls commemorating Tasmania and those who have played important roles within its history. This isn’t like anything you have seen before and photos inside the building are forbidden. You will have to go there and take a look for yourself.

Photo26
Lake St Clair

Lake St Clair is just 6kms from Derwent Bridge and is the southern end of Cradle Mountain. It is the deepest lake in Australia and the end of the infamous Overland Track, a 6-7 day trek starting at Cradle Mountain and challenging walkers to a week of a cold, mountainous path to a magnificent scenic lake.

Photo28
Photo27
Travelling further west to the other side of the island is the small town of Strahan, mostly famous in recent history for the political battle fought over the Gordon River and the planned damming of the river. From Strahan the Gordon River Cruise takes you through the region to witness its beauty. The tour also takes you to Hells Gate, a rough and treacherous ocean entrance which has captured many boats and Sarah Island, where life was made unbearable for convicts when sent to the island for their transgressions.

Photo29

Launceston is located in the Central North of the island and is home of Boags Brewery, a perfect location for lunch and a beer. James Boag and his son, also named James, formed J. BOAGS AND CO in 1883. Boags provide tours of their brewery or you can have a walk through the museum for free. Boags Beer are well known for their creative marketing and intriguing commercials.

Photo30
Cataract Gorge, Launceston

Cataract Gorge is the highlight of Launceston. Walk the Gorge to find all it has to offer. We even came across a Seal sunning himself and scratching his back on a rock. The short walk into the Gorge brings you to a swing bridge, swimming pool, chair lift and cafes, all worth seeing and part of the fun.

Photo31
Penguins at night, Burnie

In Burnie ensure you go to the Penguin Observatory, a great opportunity to have guides give you lots of information about Penguins and help you to see them in their natural habitat. Arrive just before sunset and they will provide a talk about Penguins providing information about the different seasons and habits of the Fairy Penguin.

Photo32
Main street in Stanley

Stanley is in the North West and is a truly gorgeous little town where in 2014 the Hollywood movie The Light Between Oceans was filmed. Stanley is also best known for The Nut, a Volcanic Plug 143m high. You can walk to the top or take the chairlift for stunning 360 degree views.

Photo33
Tasmazia, The Village of Lower Crackpot

Heading to the centre of Tassie find the small township called Tasmazia and The Village of Lower Crackpot. A series of 8 mazes provides unique fun for children and adults. There are small villages and all sorts of quirky and funny things to see and read. The café also does the best pancakes you could ever hope to devour.

Photo34
Photo35
Trowunna Wildlife Park, Mole Creek

Trowunna Wildlife Park is located at Mole Creek and is the best place to see Tasmanian Devils and learn all about them. Each day there’s shows featuring these cute and interesting endangered little animals and you can watch them being fed which is an experience in itself. But don’t miss Waddle the Wombat, the very friendly kangaroos, Echidna and the Wedge Tailed Eagles who sadly are no longer able to soar.

Photo36
Dove Lake with Cradle Mountain as a backdrop

In the Central Highlands sits Cradle Mountain, the start of the Overland Track and primary tourist location of Tasmania. Snow is often found on the tops of the mountain which sits at 1,545m high. A walk around the stunning Dove Lake provides various spectacular views with Cradle Mountain as its backdrop.

Photo37
Photo38
Photo39

Catching your own seafood in Tasmania is easier and better than anywhere else in Australia. Beach fishing provides great catches of Salmon, Mullet, Flathead and Whiting. From many jetty’s and piers a great feed of Squid can easily be caught and Oysters and Mussels are easily found on rocks around Tasmania. Even Crayfish can be easily caught close to the beach, check your compliance requirements before heading off to catch your dinner.

Have you been to Tassie?

What was your favourite memory?

I Can’t Do 4 Walls

I keep saying it, over and over, to anyone who asks and those willing to listen.

I can’t do 4 walls again.

I don’t know everything about my future and I reserve the right to change my mind, but after 2.5 years of living in Darwinny our Motorhome, I love it so much I don’t want it to change for my foreseeable future.

Adele is happy either way, she loves this life but could also go home. I think that’s mostly because she misses her Mum a lot and to be close to our sons Matt and Cameron.

During our time back home, we just had 4 months in Brisbane, we had lots of times where we were invited to friend’s places, sometimes even offered a place to stay. We received text messages from friends “I’m away for the weekend, the spare keys are under the mat, go relax in a bed and use the pool for a few days” would be texted to us and we were so grateful for their offer and thoughts for us. We love that we have so many wonderful and kind friends.

We did a housesit for my niece and it was awesome, beautiful pool, nice home, Foxtel, heaps of room to park the Motorhome. It was perfect, except I found within just a day or two I was back doing what I used to do, sit and watch TV, stay at home and not be productive. I wasn’t LIVING!!

We visited family and friends in their homes and all I see is “stuff”. The same stuff we used to have. All those possessions I thought that made me happy. Every now and then you’d blow off the dust and get a broom to the cobwebs and use my “stuff” again but for the most part it would just sit there doing nothing. Just money wasted which made us believe we needed to go back to work again week after week to fund the life everyone else has and we were copying.

Our friends and family may read this but I’m sure they’ll understand the context of what we mean. We discussed this with them anyway. We passionately respect and love our family and friends but a house just isn’t where we’re at any more.

When my Dad passed away I found myself asking the question “there has to be more to life than work and do chores”.

We really miss our Mums, both of us have lost our Fathers now, and we miss our sons Matthew and Cameron. We miss our friends. I miss playing cricket and all my mates. It’s not easy to just pack up and leave and it’s even harder to stay away.

For me, my entire life of 51 years before we left was lived in Brisbane. I grew up living in the same family home, we didn’t move house even once, until I was married. Adele had lived in different places and moved around different homes, but I hadn’t. I was very used to routine and stability. Given my personality that was probably a good thing.

We recently spent 4 months in Brisbane and the South East seeing everyone we could, pushing my business and exploring places we had never seen in our own “backyard”. I didn’t enjoy the traffic being back home in Brisbane, the hustle and bustle doesn’t do it for me now, but it’s still home and our Family are all there. It is home and always will be.

It was during this time back in the City that I realised I yearned for things I learnt to love when road tripping around Oz. 3 specific things stood out that I missed.

• Sunsets
• Open fires
• The Stars at night

Nobody at home talks about seeing an amazing Sunset. There’s something special about them that we just love. The colours, the differences when there’s a cloud or fire in the distance, the different views across oceans or rivers, over barren land and between mountains or ranges. Sunsets can be so different yet all so spectacular. We just don’t appreciate them at home.

Cooking over an open fire, sitting around it with a Rum in hand and chatting to new friends, seriously, does it get any better than that.

I love waking up in the morning, getting the coals fired up again and cooking some bacon and eggs. Lighting a fire in downtown Brisvegas is a sure fire way to upset the neighbours and have the local Council issuing a huge fine.

While settled in over that fire at night, it’s so wondrous to look up and absorb the big picture. Who am I, why am I here, what else is out there, what would it be like to go to the moon, how amazing is life and how our planets work. I really enjoy looking up to the stars at night, imagining a life where I get to choose my tomorrow.

Yes, don’t box me in.

How does that song go:

Oh give me land, lots of land, and the starry skies above
Don’t fence me in
Let me ride through the wide open country that I love
Don’t fence me in…….

Did I mention, I can’t do 4 walls…..

Safe travels

Kev & Adele

10 Reasons to Travel Australia Instead of Going Overseas.

There’s nothing better for the soul than travelling, it opens our eyes, our minds and our hearts. The big choice to make is if to head overseas or explore our own country. There’s so much to see in this world but here’s 10 great reasons to Travel Australia first.

1. Australia is Safer. With everything happening around the world right now, I feel pretty safe in Longreach, Broome, Esperance, 1770 and the thriving downtown metropolis of Rainbow Beach 😊

2. Shit AUD. The Aussie dollar is too low to be over excited about heading overseas.

3. Our Beaches. Unless you’ve got to know our own beaches why go overseas to see there’s?

Check out our Best Beaches here –
http://indefiniteleave.com.au/best-beaches-australia-21-30/
http://indefiniteleave.com.au/best-beaches-australia-11-20/
http://indefiniteleave.com.au/best-beaches-australia-1-10/

4. Weather. We really do have perfect weather here. Head north for winter, south for summer and be anywhere in Oz for Autumn and Spring.

5. You will meet really interesting people. We have met some of the most inspiring people on the road such as John, the 72yo former teacher and sheep farmer who I got talking to for 3 and a half hours around the camp kitchen BBQ in Katherine. Fascinating guy and hard to believe he had left Perth, been to Melbourne and was now in the NT travelling at his age…….. on a Motorbike.

John is just one of many wonderful people we have met on our adventure.

6. Learn our History. There’s so much about our own country’s past just waiting for you to discover.

7. Sunsets. The setting sun in 1770, Darwin and Broome just have to be seen. I could name so many more places including most of the WA coastline but I’ll let you discover some yourself.

8. Better for our economy. We hardly manufacture anything anymore, mining took a nose dive and therefore Tourism is becoming a vital industry for our economy. Let’s spend our money here and give our kids jobs.

9. Make friends. Travelling Australia almost guarantees you will make a whole lot of new friends.

10. Children. Your kids will grow enormously and learn on the road. They will thrive by spending genuine quality time together as a family.

As that famous brand says: Just Do It……

Safe travels
