Travel tip

Where time permits (or if you are planning a return visit), teach you kids to respect nature on the six-day, 65-kilometre (40-mile) Overland Track – a sure-fire bonding experience.

Know before you go

These smaller towns of Tassie’s west coast are serviced by shaky-at-best internet and patchy phone coverage. So bring cash and expect an enforced digital detox.

Travel tip

Driving around Queenstown is both thrilling and stunning, but take care on the winding roads and be warned that backseat passengers may need some motion-sickness remedies.
