  • We do all these, although the last 3 tend to get a bit expensive. We enjoy family walks in winter. Love getting out in the cold crisp air and checking out nature. Just cos it’s cold, doesn’t mean you have to stay inside


  • Sounds like some great ideas there! (-:


  • I love Tassie – but it is definitely a summer holiday destination for me LOL


  • a days sailing too off the coast is great. And Salamanca Markets.


  • I would love to visit Tasmania one day.


  • Thanks for the tips – Tassie is a great place to visit at any time, and these are all great ideas.


  • I have never been to Tasmania. So much to do there


  • Tassie is beautiful and this weather is perfect for visiting museums and galleries.


  • id imagine, snow and freezing weather

    • Yes there may be snow on top of one of the well known mountain peaks. The name escapes me at the moment. The wind is very strong up there when there is a mild one in Hobart. Be careful when you open the doors of your vehicles. The wind could slam them into you or “rip” them out of your hands. We went up there in a coach and the driver parked it facing in a particular direction and gave us strict instructions re the door and where it was safew to walk – all becuase of the wind. The scentery in Tas. is spectacular. In Winter – Spring you need really warm clothes when outdoors. We were there in mid Sept. If you are driving some of the roads are very windy. If you suffer from motion sickness you will need medication or another method that helps you. Some of those roads are quite narrow unless they have improved since we were there.


  • If the weather is fine, a trip to the botanical gardens is also great.


  • This is such a useful series of posts.


  • I would love to visit Tassie,the museum would be interesting!


  • I’ve never been to Tasmania. It’s surely in my bucket list!!

      • I believe so. I know people that went there and were absolutely mesmerized by its beauty!!
