Hello Tassie experts
we are coming to visit you in late Sept and have hired a motorhome for the full family bonding experience (2 girls age 6 and 8).
Coming to fully understand how big this van may be and how driving it around may not be as easy as we thought, I have opted for an itinerary which involves:
fly to Hobart, pick up van, buy some food. Drive directly to Freycinet NP where I have booked a powered site at Richardsons (?sp) beach for 3 nights. Have fun at Freycinet, relax, cruise to see dolphins and cool dog.
Big drive to Crade Mountain via shops for more food, where I have booked 3 nights at Discovery for more fun, walks, wildlife, weather dependent hikes.
Then we need to head back to Hobart to return the van and have a couple of days in Hobart.
But there is one more night in the van between Cradle Mtn and Hobart where I was hoping to stop somewhere en route to break the drive, it seems too long a driving day.
I have been to Tas before and understand that distance does not necessarily equal driving time due to single lane roads and bends. Which is the best and hopefully scenic driving route to take back to Hobart that does not involve two carsick children and a queue of angry locals trying to overtake us?
And secondly, on the best route, what can you suggest as a nice spot to stop for the night?
Many thanks and can I also say thanks so much for all the helpful forum tips you guys have really helped me planning this trip
