tassie here we come

Posted on Updated on

So Christmas is now behind us and New Year is about to come knocking! We will be bringing in 2014 in Hobart this year. It’s the second year in a row that we will not be in Sydney!

Seriously?! Where does the time go? We cannot believe that this time last year, we were on a Caribbean cruise and this year, we are trying to think of what to pack for Tasmania.

We’ve googled the forecast for the next few days and the temperature ranges so much: from the lows of 9 to the highs of 28. A mix of winter and summer clothes are needed here!

This is a family holiday, we have 12 people aged between 1 years old (our niece) through to 64 years old (the patriarch of the family). The last time we did this, there was only 10 of us and we were driving a mini-van around Western Australia…  After that experience, we have decided this time to split up into two cars for our sanity!

So our itinerary for this 10-day trip goes a little something like this:

Flying into Hobart for a few days, onwards to Bicheno for a few more, up north to Launceston and Sheffield to finish off. There will be day trips in between no doubt but these will be our “hubs”.

Thinking back to our visit here back in 2008: we are looking forward to eating fresh fruit and visiting the different farms, seeing wildlife and the beauty of nature… and who doesn’t love a good ole road trip!!

    Have a great time together with the family 🙂 Tassie weather can change in an instant, but given the forecast, it looks like you will have packed appropriately to cover anything!
