Where would be good to stay in Tasmania that would allow us to see a lot, but is a good hotel and will allow us to relax a little too, thank
Visiting Oz for 4 weeks, with a week in Sydney, a road trip from Sydney to Fraser Island, and a few days in Brisbane - never been to Tasmania and like the look but want to see as much as possible, without tearing around.
There's a lot happening in Tasmania during the January holidays. This brings crowds from other States and overseas because of a new tourism drive. You might be hard pressed to find flights, accommodation or a hire car if you haven't already booked anything. Fraser Island is pretty special and peaceful. Don't miss Byron Bay en route. A trip to the Blue Mountains from Sydney is nice too. Good luck with your travels. 12 months agoAnswered by Jennifer via WorldNomads.com
Strahan is good. Cradle Mountain a world heritage area is great.
Many other wonderful places, Friendly Beaches, Freycinet Peninsula and Coles Bay.
We also have a world class art gallery, amazing wine and food and incredible craft workers. 12 months ago
Don't forget Tasmania is pretty huge and the interior isn't desert like the continent, although the west is inaccessible by car. Plenty of awesome day hikes and beautiful beaches... try to spot a platypus around Sheffield area! There are lots of cute marsupial species around cradle mountain too.
Byron bay is awfully congested and the nightlife is pretty overrated in my opinion, but the beaches are beautiful. Try mullumbimby (my home town) for some local hippy character and Brunswick Heads for the low key local seaside feel and great live music on weekends at the hotel. Then check out the first sunrise on the continent from the peak of Wollumbin/mt warning, or if you are concerned for aboriginal law, just take in the beauty of the hinterland roads from nimbin to murwillumbah. Skip the gold coast altogether. Also before you reach Byron, consider bellingen and the waterfall way near coffs harbour if you're fed up with the highway. 11 months agoAnswered by Ben via WorldNomads.com
