Firstly, thank you everyone for your informative threads and posts on the wonderful topic of Tasmania.
I am in the process of planning a family trip for five and as such your current top threads are spot on!!
My question is this:
I have noticed that some of the Tassie knowledge banks seem a touch reserved in their comments on campervanning. We have never done it before, but we are pretty good at camping and long trips so we're not adverse to it.
My inclination towards the camper van idea is the cost saving (hire car + accommodation would possibly cost quite a bit more?) and holiday bookings. As this has been a last minute idea I suspect I will struggle to get accommodation?
My few points against are that we miss out on some of the gorgeous looking accommodation! and that we may end up in lots of tourist parks which my husband absolutely LOATHES! (he's more a hike in and camp kinda guy).
If anyone could take a minute to make a suggestion it would be most appreciated.
We have bee hives so we plan to try to visit some honey/bee operations if you know of any? Also my husband is a big cider beer fan and I am a self confessed good food addict and (if I do say so myself) great cook! so any must do experiences you suggest would also be appreciated.
That said, depending on responses I think I'm inclined to copy cat one of the other great looking itineraries on here that has been tweaked by Luigi's many great suggestions.
What do you think? am I dreaming pulling it together at such short notice to January?
Thanks so much for any advice.
