I have just returned from a five week tour of Tasmania with my wife, Sue, and a couple of close friends. I took the 4WD because I needed it for all the luggage and the car fridge (have to keep the beer cold between stops).
I just want to let you know I found Tasmanian drivers the most courteous motorists I have ever encountered. They don’t tailgate and they often pull over to let faster vehicles pass.
My mate, David, who travelled with us is a coeliac and we found most places we stopped for meals were able to provide gluten free meals for him. Even the Hungry Wombat Cafe at Derwent Bridge (between Strahan and Hobart) had gluten free choices. I can also recommend their coffee.
Also, if you like oysters a must visit is Lease 65 in St Helens. It is on the road between St Helens and the Bay of Fires. They sell pacific oysters and they are the best I have ever eaten.
Riding in Tasmania is going to be a great experience. The whole time I was there I kept thinking about riding the motorbike over the roads we were travelling on. A lot of the roads are narrow so you have to ride cautiously in some places.
Roll on October.
