I went to Tasmania with my mother in the holidays after I did Matric (year 12). That is 42 years ago now.
I loved it and have happy memories of our time there. I remember how cool it was there in January after the heat of SA. Mum and I laughed because the locals were saying it was so hot and we were debating whether it was warm enough to go for a swim. I loved Hobart and remember the boxes of flowers on the platforms at the railway station there. I think there were only 4 platforms. I loved Cat and Fiddle Square.
The gum trees near our motel smelt lovely and fresh after the rain. The motel staff were friendly and we had a great time.
I would love to see tasmania. I've heard so much about it and the photos look amazing. The weather would suit me as I don't like the heat but was told it gets very humid there. Ive always wanted to see the northern lights. The southern lights would be just as good. My dream trip
We've only been there for or 3 days, during 2 cruises, right around Australia, It was a day in Burnie, Hobart, Port Arthur. I keep asking my husband if we can do a trip around Tassie. He's thinking about it! It would have to be after we buy a new car though. We would be able to stay with a daughter in Melbourne, before & after Tasmania! A family of 3 from our suburb, went their for a holiday, & didn't come home again. I don't know who packed up all their belongings & sold their house in NSW for them! Our next door neighbours moved to the next suburb for a year or two, (their kids had already left home,) then they moved to Tasmania. I can't wait to go! Our cruise Tasmanian visits were the shortest time I'd spent in any Australian state!
