Julie, her sons Michigan and Montana, and parents Lisa and Henry, enjoyed a full day out with Tasmania i-Drive. From the dock in Hobart we headed straight to Tahune Adventures inland from Geeveston, in the Huon Valley. Here we did the Huon Pine walk, to marvel at the old folk of the forest, and traversed the Airwalk spending around 2 hours. We took a side trip on our return to gaze up at a giant swamp gum.
Following a delicious lunch at Sass Restaurant, at Port Huon, we visited the Wooden Boat Centre at Franklin where the family partook of a guided tour learning about the art of wooden boat building. Next on the schedule were tastings at Frank’s Cider, Home Hill Winery, and The Honey Pot. We then headed up the mountain but, unfortunately, the weather gods were not watching down on us, and visibility was very poor. We stopped outside Cascade Brewery, Australia’s oldest operational brewery, dating back to 1824, for a couple of photos.
We finished off with a drive though Sandy Bay, stopping at Alexander Battery lookout for a last photo looking back toward the Tasman Bridge and their cruise ship, Ovation of the Seas. On the way back to the ship we passed through Battery Point and the Salamanca precinct to complete the tour.
