    This depends very much on your method of transport and your interests. I am sure that you have done your homework and know the usual tourist haunts. Most southern Tasmanians would tell you that Launnie's attractions start about 100km down the road....but then we are very slightly predjudiced! Don't miss Evandale market, the setting and the atmosphere is excellent. Why not try a day at the horse races? Walk the tracks that run through the gorge? Happy to help in any more specific way, Sharon

    You have Penny Royal World, the museum, the cataract gorge, which is great in Summer, you can walk up there from the city centre. Evandale as Tasmania said, but you will need a car. The bakery out there is sensational. Cant remember what else is on down there at that time of year as I havent been home in 5 years. Do a google search or That should give you some hints and tips on what to do. The wineries down the Tamar are great, as is pipers brook/river
