    Default Xmas Tassie or Gold/sunshine coast? Help me choose!!

    We live in the tropics near the beach and are trying to choose between Tassie (never been to) or the Gold/sunshine coast (have done before). The Tassie trip would cost $5000 just in accom, flights, hire car for 10 days and its a big day of travel to get there(7hours all up). Gold Coast would be about the same (flights cheaper but accom more expensive). Will also only take 2.5/3 hours travel. We will have a 3 yr and 1 yr old and would plan to do the 'worlds' on coast, or farmstays, wildlife, foodie stuff in Tas.

    Help me choose?!

    Tassie but I live here and love it so I'm slightly biased too!!

    Recently I took my almost. 3yo to gold coast for ten days spending around the same as you. We had a lovely time but it was just sooooo busy. We are very laid back so a slower destination probably would have suited us better.

    There is sooo much to see and do here in tassie. If you want any accommodation suggestion just sing out.

    Tassie- it's a lovely place & it is so different to where you live & the gc where you've been before. It will also be less hectic, so less stress

    I'm picking Tasmania as well. It's do beautiful and you have to live up to your user name! Also I am not sue how much benefit your little ones would get from "the worlds" at their age. I would wait until they are a little older.

    On the other hand I think they would love farm stays, wildlife etc in Tasmania. And you would live the food! There are also nice beaches in Tasmania (underrated probably because it's cooler)!

    Have fun deciding, I love planning holidays!

    TASSIE!! Been there 5 times on holidays and still haven't seen or done everything.

    My favourite places are Cradle Mountain, Port Arthur, Freycinnet (Coles Bay) and Launceston.
