My wife and I had a chance to visit Taz about 10 years ago. We were on a 3-week tour of Oz and landed (by air) in Hobart on the day after the first yachts arrived from the annual Sydney to Hobart race. Quite a sight.
Drove all over the northern half of the Island (saw the famous prison camp etc.) Up in the higher regions much of the scenery reminded us of Vermont here in the US. Very green but cool even in the Summer (we were there in January).
Definitely would like to go back one day and spend more time there but, alas.....
WORK IS THE CURSE OF THE LEISURE CLASSES!!
Have a great trip!
