      How much do I need per day?

      Hobart Apr 26, 2016 at 11:20 AM

      This is my first time to Tasmania.
      I will be travelling budget with my mom, how much will I need per day excluding car rental and lodging?
      Likely will be meals and attraction entrance fee.

      I will be buying grocery from super market for breakfast and dinner, lunch outside.
      Interested in nature, not much on museum.

      Planning to stay 8-9 days, will it be sufficient?
      What is the distance from place to place?
      As I am the only driver, will need to consider if it requires very long distance to travel from place to place.

      Thanks!

      Hire a campervan in Melbourne or Tassy?

      Tasmania Apr 18, 2016 at 5:00 PM

      Hi, I am planning to travel to Tasmania next summer for a fortnight self-drive trip with my husband. I wondered, does anyone have any experience with campervan hire? Am I better off to fly from Perth to Melbourne and hire the camper there to take over on the ferry, or fly Perth to Hobart and hire the camper in Tasmania? I just wondered, with high volume of customers in Melbourne, if my range of choices/prices would be better? Thanks in advance. Caro.

      Should we hire a car?

      Hobart Nov 16, 2015 at 4:14 AM

      My husband and I are are planning a short holiday (6 days) to Tassie in early January. We plan to stay in various hotels in Hobart. Could anyone please advise if you think it's worth hiring a car during that time or can we walk to most tourist destinations? We want to visit nice wineries and maybe do a few hiking trails. We are open to booking into a few tours if there are any decent ones??
      Any advice is much appreciated! :-) Jackie

      Considering moving to Hobart

      Hobart Oct 3, 2015 at 6:24 AM

      Hi there folks

      I have just received a job offer from UTAS. In making my decision to move, I wondered if anyone could give me some pros and cons of living in Hobart specifically and Tasmania in general. If there are any Scots out there who have done this already - I would particularly love to hear from you! I really want to take the leap and have an exciting adventure, but I have never lived outside of the UK before and so I am slightly terrified...

      Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

      Cheers

      Taxi on Xmas night

      Hobart Sep 29, 2015 at 6:32 AM

      Hi,

      We are a family of four and we will be arriving Hobart Airport on 25 Dec 11PM. I am looking to reserve hotel rooms either near airport or at the city centre.

      Questions:
      1) Will there be taxi working on christmas night? 11:30PM?
      2) I am not sure if we should walk to the nearest hotel from the airport (collect car rental from airport next morning) or take a taxi to city centre near Market Place and rent a car from Avis.

      Appreciate your advice.

      Thank you!

    • Mt Wellington to Fern Tree

      Hobart Jun 2, 2015 at 2:52 AM

      I believe if I walk from Mt Wellington to Fern tree (to catch bus back to Hobart) it will be along the zig zag track route. Has anyone actually walked this route and is it a path and steps or clambering over boulders? It seems about 5.5 km. I will be there in mid February

      I am fascinated by Tasmania, eversince I watched a movie filmed in Tasmania. Since, I am in Sydney, I decided to visit Tasmania on the end of my trip. My worry is, since I dont drive, will it still possible to navigate Tasmania tourist spots by public transport? I know it almost impossible but at least I will cover some places.

      I spent a week in Tasmania more than two decades ago and I'm looking forward to another trip to the Island, a longer one this time. Southwest NP looks very interesting and I'm sure some of you have explored it. It seems that the only way to reach Mt. Solitary is by boat. Is there a boat service to the island ? is camping allowed on it ?

      Is anyone has experience on both? Will it be overlapping experience if we take both?
      If we have to choose which one is better?
