    Little walks to break up a drive.

    Kellys basin is supposed to be a great walk while your on the Wild West, http://www.parks.tas.gov.au/index.aspx?base=1579 You follow a railway track and end up at a ghost town that used to be a highly populated port town! Now it is apparently all over grown with scrubbery!. I had some friends that went down there with the old town plans and bashed through thick forest finding lots of old treasures, large overgrown grand gates and abandoned houses. Its not a short walk but ignore what the signs say, most people could knock an hour and a half off their estimate... about 11 years ago

    Best bushwalking destinations?

    Ahh forgot to mention Walls of Jerusalem, this is really beautiful, like being in another world! and less populated than the Overland Track. It is a steep climb up the hill but once on the top its all worth while. Lots of little waterholes, pencil pines and all things beautiful and ancient. Also where they filmed the backdrop for BBC's ''Walking with Dinosaurs''. Truely spectacular! about 11 years ago

    Wineglass bay on the east coast is worth seeing too, but this is just as touristy as Cradle Mountain, if you don't mind that though, its defo worth seeing, Once you walk over to Wineglass, walk back via the Hazards! Really speccy! about 11 years ago

    Where is a good place to stay on the West Coast of Tasmania?

    Suggest trying Cosy Cabbins . They look pretty cute and are only 10 mins from the town centre! Check out the pub for a great meal too... http://www.cosycabins.com.au/Controller?entity=page&command=parks&articleID=1010164 about 11 years ago

    Good restaurants and places to eat?

    Would definately recommend Garuva, http://www.garuva.com.au/ It is hidden tranquility as it says on the website. The food is not the best, but its worth it for the ambiance. You can tell this place is a hit for the fact they have never advertised and there is no signage, though it is always booked. When you find the entrance you walk through a mini rainforest and when you open the big old door you will see that every table is seperated by sheer curtains. Be sure to wear clean socks though, you need to take your shoes off and sit on low lounge cusions!. Also there is a lovely little bar at the back that offers delicious cocktails!, recommend going during the week, as Friday and Sat the romance is lost a bit with all the people... Another place I would recommend is Yakiniku www.yakiniku.com.au This place is in the Valley, near China Town and offers a Japanese BBQ Experience. You have a grill in the middle of the table and you can cook yourself everything they bring out, lots of different things to chose from!xx about 11 years ago
