In 2013 we traveled to the Apple Isle – Tasmania.
Somewhat surprising was walking through the airport at Hobart and having walk in underneath the sign saying “International Visitors”. They really do treat mainlanders like foreigners!
We started off with a few days in Hobart, staying in Salamanca and visiting the famous markets in the morning.
Following that, we headed out to Bruny Island (famous for its cheese and wine) where the weather was dark and storm. Actually, it was perfect weather for a trip like this, making the coastline look impressive and wild. On Bruny Island we ate some of the so-called local delicacies including possum and kangaroo.
From there it was a drive up the eastern coast to Swansea where we enjoyed the Remarkables and Wineglass Bay, before heading to the hills for Cradle Mountain – easily one of my favourite places in Australia. We spent a few days there before driving back to Hobart via a night in Launceston.
