Would appreciate any advice in fine-tuning our itinerary below (especially days 5-7) for a 7-day visit to Tassie in November, flying into and out of Hobart.
We are first-time visitors, a couple from England, and want lots of Hobart and history/convict trail attractions, nice scenery, animals, and craft-type things. Unlikely to return. We like to be busy! Have found details on all the mentioned attractions online. We don’t want any major walking or any outdoor pursuits/hiking, gentle walks are good though.
Seem to have run out of time for the North West (Cradle Mountain).
Staying Hobart first 2 nights, then suggestions on stopover towns would be appreciated (looks like Launceston, Devonport?). Obviously we could do some travelling when the attractions have closed for the evening if this fits.
Female Factory, Cascades, Botanic Gardens
Battery Point, Salamanca Market (Sat a.m.), St. David’s Cathedral, Gasworks Complex, Waterfront
