State of Tasmania

Itinerary

Thanks for all your previous advices. They are very helpful. My preliminary itinerary is now as follow:
Day 1: Arrive at Launceston at around 2pm. Want to go to Cataract Gorge (not sure if there is enough time).
Day 2: From Launceston to Cradle Mt. Expect to stay the day there. Will stay at Cradle Mt Wilderness Village.
Day 3: Leave for Sheffield, Mole Creek Karst NP and if possible, will drive along the coast between Wynyard & Devonport.
Day 4: Head to the eastern coast, will start from Bay of Fires, then down south to Bicheno & Coles Bay.
Day 5: To Port Authur, will take the 3hr cruise to tour the Taman Island.
Day 6: It's a Sat. Will visit Salamanca market in Hobart. Will leave at 4:15pm.

Would welcome for any comments on the itinerary above.

Hi, I hope I can help


Day 1: Arrive at Launceston at around 2pm. Want to go to Cataract Gorge (not sure if there is enough time). - By April the sun will be starting to set earlier and after arrival and getting to your accomodation to leave your luggage you will have used at least an hour (are you arriving by air?)

Day 2: From Launceston to Cradle Mt. Expect to stay the day there. Will stay at Cradle Mt Wilderness Village. - You should have time to do the walk around Dove Lake. A helicopter flight over the area is also worthwhile. A special thing to do at Cradle Mountain is to visit the Tasmanian Devil sanctuary ' 3: Leave for Sheffield (must stop and look at the murals), Mole Creek Karst NP and if possible, will drive along the coast between Wynyard & Devonport.

Day 4: Head to the eastern coast, will start from Bay of Fires, then down south to Bicheno & Coles Bay. - from Coles Bay drive into Freycinet NP do the walk to the lookout over Wineglass Bay if you have time.

Day 5: To Port Authur, will take the 3hr cruise to tour the Taman Island.

Day 6: It's a Sat. Will visit Salamanca market in Hobart. Will leave at 4:15pm.

Hi! sounds like a lovely plan. Only caution i would have is to time your trip to Mole Creek carefully if you want to do the cave tours. I have been twice and missed the cave i wanted to see each time (with the glow worms!)

I am not sure when you are planning to travel, but you might also be able to see the penguins at Bicheno if you're there overnight.

Dont forget the wombats at Cradle!

Enjoy! :)
