    Default Tasmania! What to see and do?

    Cascade brewery or boags brewery are both great tours. Anvers choc and ashgrove cheese are both brilliant too. Highlight of tassie for me though is cradle mountain. The restaurant at cradle mountain resort is pricey but worth every cent. Have fun!

    The only place suggested I have been to is Ashgrove Cheese but I am definitely going there again!

    And dad keeps telling me to visit Cradle Mountain so will do!

    I can't wait to google all these places. I am waiting for DP to come home but he's running late today

    One question hubbers. Should I take my pram or buy a $20 stroller in Tas when we get there?

    Christmas hills raspberry farm has a great cafe. It's not far from Ashgrove cheese. Anvers chocolate also has a great cafe.

    The gorge restaurant in Launceston is beautiful & def romantic. Great food too.

    Cradle mountain is BEAUTIFUL!!

    Also there is an amazing train ride going from queens town to strahan, called the west coast wilderness railway. We went VIP which was expensive but OMG, I would pay again in a heartbeat! Truly one of the best holiday experiences we had in tasmania.

    We also loved wine glass bay and freycinet peninsula, We stayed in a rental house overlooking the water, beautiful walks, scenery, boat day trips, canoeing, caves etc...

    As for the stroller I would take one if you could, or we bought an ergo with us also so I could carry my little one while we bush walked etc. Some places you can't take a stroller... But don't assume there will be lots of shopping centers etc to buy a stroller if you need one, especially in the north lol. We made the mistake of flying in to devonport, thinking we'll take a taxi to the nearest shopping centre to buy some winter clothing and pass time until check in... Hahahaha We then get told on the bus to our flight we better arrange a taxi before hand if we want one and the closest thing to "shopping" was a country target lol. devonport was still lovely though, beautiful houses, gardens, walks along the water etc...

    I can't remember where it is I was younger but we went on a wooden bridge over a gorge? And a peacock zoo? It was amazing! I still remember it I would have been about 6-7!! I don't remember anything else

    Thank you so much everyone! These tips are fantastic! Good to know shopping isn't as frequent in the north might take a smaller pram with us

    I can't wait. I've been a bit nervous about the whole thing and its made me find it impossible to just get excited.

    But this thread has really made me get excited now so thanks everyone.
