Yes, I did. I have never been before and with a mix of surprise and relief, I can honestly say that I had the best time. A mix of wildlife galore and luxury accommodation these are the highlights of my holiday:
1st stop – Hobart!
Off I went on the direct flight Brisbane-Hobart, taxied straight to the Macq01 Hotel right in the heart of Hobart. A magnificent room with a view and water lapping at my balcony, this hotel is like stepping into another world. A minimum of two full days in Hobart are needed to visit all that the city has to offer. A day trip to Port Arthur is a must when in the area however I enjoyed the town so much that I could have easily spent two days there.
Next up – Frecynet Peninsula!
From Hobart, we headed toward the Fracynet peninsula through a 2-hour scenic drive, looking forward to a few days filled with a balance of city life and nature immersion. The peninsula is famous is the perfect spot to indulge in some shopping and boutique restaurants where people can try some freshly harvested Oysters for which Tasmania is famous. To top our stay, staying at the Saffire Freycinet is an experience in itself of pure luxury. The area is also home to the renowned ‘Wine Glass Bay’ accessible through a hike over the ridge of the range – I went on the “easy” trail – the clients who know will be delighted to know how far I made it through – Let’s just say it was comical.
The last stop – Launceston
Last stop on the itinerary was Launceston where we spent a little time discovering the city before flying back home.
If Tasmania is on your horizon this year..
As an avid international traveller, I will admit I was surprised by how much Tasmania has to offer. As the State Island won my heart over I am looking forward to recommending some of the most exclusive accommodation and restaurant for your next holiday. From unique stays at Pumphouse and Cradle Mountain Lodge Tasmania is a destination where visitors can enjoy luxury, nature and unforgettable food experiences without breaking the bank. Give me 7 or 8 days and I work out the most wonderful fly/drive holiday you can ever imagine.
