    Hi! I saw your post right now...hopefully i'm still on time! Your plan looks really good, i did almost the same in the opposite direction few mounths ago. Just one suggestion: when you'll be on the Freycinet Peninsula (Wineglass bay) i strongly recommend to spend the night again in st helens, due the real long way from Wineglass bay to Launceston. To reach this bay you'll need about 1 hour one way. If you'll be in st helens at the sunset be sure to be on the small harbour, it's so relaxing..
    Enjoy Tasmania! Roberto
