Must-see and do for 9 days in Tasmania

Hi all,

I am going to Tasmania 9 days in February with my parents. Flying in and out from Hobart probably.

The idea is to rent a car and travel around, we all love hiking but could not be automous in organizing camping etc...

If you have any insights on a good itinerary/ things to do/ places to stay or restaurants, please feel free to share!

I spent 2 weeks in Tasmania.  The hikes I enjoyed most were in Freycinet National Park

and in Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park

If you're going to be in Tasmania on February 21st, 2015, then you might enjoy the annual Evandale Village Fair and National Penny Farthing Championships in Evandale

Hi Maylis,

The main reason why we wanted to see Tasmania was Wineglass Baylocated in Freycinet National Park Wineglass is said to have the purest air and water on earth.


It will take you around three hours via A3. Wake up early to get there around 8 AM (opening time) and stop for breakfast at Barkmill Tavern & Bakery lovely local bakery. You have to purchase the ticket to enter the park at the Visitor Center ($15 per person). The hike to get to the Wineglass Viewpoint takes around 30 min. If you want to reach the beach add another 30 min and one more hour to go back to the parking lot. If you have time you should hike to the beach, it’s a true paradise and the air is crispy and clean. There are other hikes that you can do depending on the time you have available. Another point of interest in the area is the Lighthouse which offers a breathtaking view of the park.

If you are willing to know more about the animals that populate the island visit Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary It’s a place for injured and endangered animals and it’s located around 20 min drive from Hobart. It opens at 9 AM, entrance is $15 per person and they will give you food to feed the kangaroos. There are three free guided tours per day, the first one starts at 11.30AM.
