This passing month we have been in Tasmania. We arrived in the afternoon of the 31st of January and departed on the 3rd of March, arriving in Melbourne the next morning. We had so much fun in Tassie, I didn’t want to leave! Here are my top 5 things to see in Tasmania
1. Wineglass Bay
We had so much fun hiking the mountain and having a swim in the bay! This hike is not for the faint hearted if you haven’t got much practice, it took 4 1/2 hours for the round trip with kids and we were reasonably ( for people with kids ) fast. There are also other walks that take longer, for more experienced hikers, such as Mt Atmos, which was a 6 hr return.
2. Cradle Mountain
The view was absolutely stunning here! A lot of wombats live here and we were lucky enough to see a couple! You have to watch out for the certain presents they leave behind on the boardwalk, otherwise you might get a squishy surprise! If you are a strong hiker, pack your camping gear and go on the 6 day hike!
3. Bay of Fires
This was such a picturesque place to be! We stopped at a lovely place called ( too true ) Cosy Corner – and almost didn’t find a spot! We stayed here for 3 days. It really was a pretty place, but beware of the black sand! When we went to the actual Bay of Fires, it was really, really pretty! I would suggest going there on a mild day – otherwise you rot in the heat!
4. Tahune Airwalk
The view here was beyond imagination! Neither pictures nor words could do any justice to what I saw at the airwalk. You walked on a suspension bridge above all the trees. At the end of the walk, you reached the Cantilever, which was perfect for a nice selfie. Once we completed the walk above the trees, we moved onto the Swinging Bridges walk, where you walked across another set of bridges, that were strung up above another part of the river. We had a nice caramel milkshake as a well done back at the cafe.
Tasmazia was a day of fun, thick bushes and maze galore! There were 8 mazes, 4 of which
are located in the Great Maze. The other three are located inside The Village of Lower Crackpot. Check out the website – http://www.tasmazia.com.au/
My two favourite things I did was go to WIneglass Bay and Tasmazia.
TIP: Wear shoes AT ALL TIMES outside. If you don’t there is a 50/50 chance you will get bitten by a jackjumper ant! I have been bitten 3 times and trust me, these little blighters damn hurt!
PS: We arrived back in Melbourne a week or so ago and we just left Shepparton. We stayed at our friend’s property and we got to ride their MOTORBIKES?!
