The guys lucky enough to attend the recent Snowies cruise decided we should do another cruise through the Apple Isle early next year

 

Mainlanders would be looking at going over on the boat Thursday night 7th March, returning on the boat Tuesday night 12th March.

With the Labour Day long weekend this would mean taking only the Friday and the Tuesday as holidays/leave etc (for Victoria - other states YMMV)

 

As per usual on the interstate cruises you're always welcome to join up and leave as your time/plans permit.

 

This would give us an extra day than we've taken previously (5 full days total) with the idea of maybe 2 nights at one location.

 

We'll most probably be attacking the Island clockwise this time and making sure we take in the North East properly (it's been rushed on previous cruises)

 

Possible places for the 2 nights, 1 bed are around Freycinet, Port Arthur or Strahan - depending on the wishes of the group and fitting in with people who want to join us, leave us, extend their stay further and for "tourist" activities people wish to experience. Depending on feedback here it will change or even be forgotten about, with a new destination each night.

 

Either way - I'll be going for a spurt round the Island on the dates given and am hoping some of you guys are keen to join me. 

 

Route, sights and stopovers are extremely fluid at this stage. 

 

Quick "doodle" idea of a possible route:

Think I'll start helping to sussing out some prices (but we ought to decide on the routes) - did that come out wrong :mosking:  Come Feb the good places to stay out will be scarcer and I think it would be good if we could all stay at the same hotel/motels where possible (if anything to make it easier to find our rooms at the end of evenings :roflmbo: )

 

May get myself another GoPro or similar as well  farrk been bingeing in Grand Tour on Amazon Prime Video - those old English farts just keep getting better as time goes by in my opinion :drivingalong:

I have done the tassie boat and road trip before with the family. Absolutely spectacular, try and visit cradle mountain as well.

 

One thing though guys, the roads are pretty horrible and in places down right dangerous. You really want a high riding 4wd rather than a highpowered lowered rwd.
