I am after some 'must do' holiday suggestions for Tasmania. We will be staying up north for just over 2 weeks in Summer. I think we are planning on spending a week or so (in two 3-4 night blocks in different places) on the North East Coast, then to Cradle Mountain and Launceston. We will have our 4 year old and 6 year old with us.
Any suggestions of activities/places to go with kids?
Any suggestions of where to stay on the East coast?
Last time DH and I went to Tasmania we did alot of driving, but this time we really want to base ourselves in each place for 3-4 nights and have a slower pace since the kids will be with us.

In Launceston we went to the Cataract Gorge and then there is a park in the city centre and pretty sure there are monkeys there!
We also went to the Platypus House in Beauty Point which isnt too far away and there is also seahorse world there. There is also a German Village nearby as well I think.
We stayed at the Colonial launceston on Elizabeth st
Around that area we went to tasmazia near Sheffield so between cradle Mt and Launceston. We also did Mole Creek caves, 41 Degrees Salmon and Ginseng Farm, Ashgrove Cheese Farm and a berry farm (cant find it listed on my itinerary).
Tasmania is beautiful!

Thank you so much. I will have to look into them all. Tasmania is beautiful.....I am so excited to be planning this trip!
Does anyone else have ideas? Especially for where to stay on the east coast?

Bicheno is lovely and close to a lot of the east coast attractions. But honestly you can't go wrong. St. Helens, binalong bay, Scamander, Swansea, Coles bay, orford are all lovely. It depends on how far you want to drive. Personally I'm going away for a weekend and staying just outside Swansea, as I'm keen to visit Friendly beaches, freycinet national park, surrounding vineyards and the berry farm.

We stayed just at cabin in the Caravan Park in Coles Bay when we went. It was basic but fine for our purposes with our DD who was 23 months at the time. We went for a hike to see Wineglass Bay and played on the beach and just had fub.

We went when dd1 was 11 months and did lots of driving too, we just did the bulk of the driving while she had her arvo nap but would have liked to explore more. We stayed out of Launceston, in a great villa at tamar valley resort.
Are you taking the car over on the boat? We did the overnight and so easy.

DH is taking the car over on the boat and I am flying with the kids. I get sea sick so taking the boat would be the last resort for me. I am sure the kids would enjoy it but it's such a long day and flying was cheaper!
We have now booked all our accommodation and it's nice to have it sorted nice and early.
