We had a lot of adventure including Cradle Mountain, Beaconsfield Mining Museum, Port Arthur, Mona and Mt Wellington where it snowed! We had a fantastic time.

Hiring a car to drive through Tassie is the best way to get around. Beautiful windy roads with picturesque scenery hard to beat. The East Coast drive from Coles Bay to Port Arthur was amazing. We also enjoyed a night stay at the Waundering Trout in Mole Creek. Recommended.

East Coast is located off site from the airport. If you must schedule an after hours drop off you must also plan transportation from the rental site to the airport. Not fully convenient.

We love Tasmania. The 4WD was very comfortable with a family of four and luggage. If you are on the north coast pay a visit to Reliquaire in La Trobe and Anvers Chocolate for a hot chocolate. Both well worth it.

On a very cold and rainy day my friend and I travelled all the way to Stanley for the view, but couldn't see much due to the weather, but visited the lovely Cow 'n' Calf Art Gallery where I purchased a magnificent print, Magical Rocky, Rocky Cape, NW Stanley which David Murphy kindly posted out to me in Melbourne. I now have a constant reminder of one of the many interesting and beautiful places we visited on our Launceston trip.

My partner and I hired a car to travel around Tasmania - it's an absolute must in order to visit all the great places Tasmania has to offer. We were hesitant to get a hatchback car, as we weren't sure if there were any off road routes required. We visited Launceston, Freycinet, Hobart and Cradle Mountain without any road dramas whatsoever. Be careful driving at night though as there are so many wild animals sprinting across the roads!

Tasmania - St. Helens, Swansea, Ross, Richmond, Hobart, Port Arthur, Mt. Wellington, Strahan, Cradle Mountain and Launceston. This was an excellent 9 day clockwise route around Tassie. Highlights are the Bay of Fires, Binalong Point, the mid East Coast, Derwent Valley and of course Cradle Mountain all very beautiful. Launceston... not that exciting.
