Tasmania Day 2 – Port Arthur

On our second day in Tasmania, we headed to Jackman and McRoss for breakfast before driving by Cascade Brewery just to check out their impressive facade. We also made a quick stop at Sullivan’s Cove for some whisky-tasting. One of their French Oak casks was voted the World’s Best Single Malt Whisky at the 2014 World Whisky Awards.

After that, it was back to the airport to return our rental car and pick up our Maui camper van. We were going to stay in a not-so-little van for most of our time in Tasmania. To be honest, I was quite concerned about having to use the toilet in our campervan! We headed to Port Arthur and then drove to our first campsite.

Port Arthur is an amazing place to visit and there’s so much to see and explore there. It is one of 11 Australian convict sites inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Tasmania Day 1 – MONA

For our 10th Anniversary this year, we decided on a trip to Tasmania. I was really looking forward to the trip after such a busy time at work and with the kids.

We landed in Hobart, collected our rental, then headed straight for MONA. MONA is utterly provocative, somewhat disturbing, and completely fascinating. Definitely a must visit in Tasmania.

We took some photos outside MONA because it was such a gloriously beautiful day. And so lovely and cool too.

After MONA, we drove to Hadley’s Orient Hotel where we were going to stay for one night before collecting our camper van the next day. We walked down to Franklin Wharf for some dinner before heading back to the hotel for some well-deserved rest!
