After spending the morning at Battery Point and Hobart Harbour my wife and daughter returned to our hotel for a much needed rest. As is often the case I wasn’t about to sleep the afternoon away and decided to drive to Mt Wellington instead. It had snowed heavily the night before and I wasn’t sure […]
On our last day in Hobart we decided to spend the morning at Battery Point. My wife had heard of a bakery there called Jackman & McRoss and it looked like a good place to have some morning tea. She was right, the food was delicious! We shared a custard Berliner, apricot danish and a […]
The walk to Mt Amos in Freycinet National Park was the last walk that I had planned to do during our 12 day trip in Tasmania. It would be an almost 3 hour drive from our accommodation in Hobart to the Wineglass Bay Walker Car Park. The weather forecast indicated that showers were expected from […]
On our 10th day in Tasmania we headed straight to the Salamanca Market which was only a short 2 minute walk from our accommodation. My wife and I love visiting markets as we often find that they are a good place to sample a variety of local products. We were also on the lookout for […]

Of all the things we planned to do before our trip to Tasmania there was one experience I was looking forward to the most, walking in Southwest National Park. Even though it’s the largest national park in Tasmania it’s also the most remote and the least visited. I was particularly attracted to this as many […]
After six full days of travelling and exploring we decided to take it easy on our first day in Hobart. It was also a good chance to catch up on some practical things, like getting some groceries and doing some washing. So we decided to spend most of the morning at our accommodation before heading […]
After 3 nights at Cradle Mountain our next and final destination in Tasmania was a 7 night stay in Hobart. Before our trip I was asked why we didn’t spent some nights in other places, why the 7 night stay in Hobart? It was an easy question to answer. For my wife and I we […]
Originally when I was researching for this trip I planned to do a long walk on the trails above Dove Lake. The exact route I planned to take was as follows: Dove Lake car park, Mount Campbell, Hansons Peak, Twisted Lakes, Artists Pool, Face Track, Marions Lookout, Wombat Pool, Lake Lilla, Dove Lake car park.
