This is a one week itinerary for the Eastern coast of Tasmania, which is in Australia.

Contents

Understand

Tasmania differs from the Australian mainland both in terms of environment and culture. The weather is much more temperate, and in winter can plunge to freezing temperatures. The people are more laid back than mainland Australians, particularly more than those based Sydney or Melbourne.

Prepare

Get in

This itinerary is intended to start in Hobart, the state capital of Tasmania.

By air

The main Australian airlines, QANTAS, JetStar and Virgin Blue all fly directly to Hobart, flying from Sydney and Melbourne (other capital cities may be supported).

On Arrival

Cheap car hire deals can normally be found pretty easily either on the Internet (before departure) or on arrival at Hobart. It is recommended that self-drive is taken for this itinerary.

Go/Drive

Day one: Hobart Arrive in Hobart.

Day two: Launceston Drive to Launceston, stopping off on the way at the Cadbury's Chocolate Factory just outside Hobart

Day three

Day four

Day five

Day six

Day seven Return to Tasmania

Stay safe

Tasmania has few of the dangerous creatures normally associated with Australia, the temperature is too cold for them. Nevertheless, caution must be exercised on self-drive excursions that cross through the countryside, especially at night. The amount of roadkill that can be found on the roads is evidence to how easy it is to hit them. Although a wombat may look cuddly, they can do a lot of damage to the average car!

As always, the application of common sense can prevent other dangerous situations from occuring. Don't wander down deserted streets at night if you're by yourself, etc.

Get out

This article is an outline and needs more content. It has a template, but there is not enough information present. Please plunge forward and help it grow!
