long-distance travel australia

So you’re headed to Australia? You’re not going to want to go to just one place when there’s so many different landscapes and exciting experiences to be had all over the country so the first thing you’ll need to figure out is how best to travel around because here’s the thing… Australia is huge.

So why didn’t I love Hobart?  Was in the weather?  I’m sure it had an impact but mostly I think I’d just been spoilt by the beautiful Launceston, Cradle Mountain and drive to Tasmania’s biggest city.  Hobart is surrounded by the water so to get there or leave involves crossing the iconic Tasman Bridge.
