Bellerive Youth Hostel

by clank007 Online Now Jul 29, 2010 at 8:00 AM

Hi,
I am planning a remeniscing type trip to Australia and part of that is to return to the stunning town of Hobart in Tasmania.

16 years ago I stayed at the Bellerive YHA on King Street in Bellerive and made very good friends there with the 80 year old manager - Bill Tomlinson.
He was an ex pat who emmigrated to Australia for £10 in the fifties.

I realise he is likely to have passed away now, but does anyone know if the Youth Hostel is still there as I cant find it online?
Simon.

    You can contact YHA which is on the net and they would be able to advise--they would have a list of YHA's throughout Australia--Bellerive is a very nice area in Tasmania and Hobart is still a very laid back city.
    Anyway try www.yha.com.
    Good luck
