Wisteria Lodge B & B
Wisteria Lodge Bed and Breakfast is located on a 3km drive- a scenic circuit by the Tamar River-, with excess to the pontoon. It is ideal for your morning walks. You can watch the bird-life from the Tamar Wetlad Centre-nearby. Sample the wines and produce all along the Tamar River. Visit the gold mine at Beaconsfield, the platypus, seahorse house at Beauty Point. Go penguin watching at Low Point. Enjoy nature at the Narawntapu National Park. See a Tasmanian Devil at Tasmania Zoo.
The cascading waters at the George in Launceston in Spring are an awesome sight. Ski in Winter at Mt Ben Lomond, enjoy Ben Lomond National Park. Visit Launceston museums and brewery. Wisteria Lodge B and B is within a comfortable 15-minute drive to Launceston. Launceston is the Northern hub of our beautiful island Tasmania. It has the best location for people, who want to explore the rest of Tasmania to base themselves in. A 2-2.5 hour drive gets you into Hobart, via Campbell Town, Ross (historic women’s penitentiary), and Oatlands.
Boats competing in the Sydney to Hobart race, 26th December, arrive the last days of the year or some even early the next.
If it is too hot in the Summer months, visiting Mt. Wellington will cool you down.
You will get a glorious view of Hobart and it's surrounds to the East and South, while to the West and South-West the mountain ranges that comprise the South-West wilderness.
Visit Salamanca Markets and stock up on Tasmanian arts and crafts and fresh organically grown vegetables.
The Huon Peninsula is mostly cooler, too. Supposedly the best apples are grown there. It possesses abundant scenic beauty.
Visit the Hastings Caves and the thermal springs. Just a little further south you can hop onto the historic railway. Oh, and I nearly forgot. South and North Bruny Island for your freshest and best oysters.
East of Hobart is the historic penitentiary at Port Arthur. Take an adventure boat tri [around the Tasman Peninsula and Tasman Island. You will definitely see lots of sea lions and dolphins and if you are lucky a whale, or two as well.
About 2.5-3 hours drive will get you to the farthest North East; Marrawah. There you can visit Arthurs River and take a boat trip along it.
On your way you will touch on Deloraine (a very pretty town with a mountain backdrop), Devonport (port for the ferry 'Spirit of Tasmania' from Melbourne), Burnie (a seaside industrial town with a major port), Wynyard with Table Cape, Stanley (with Circular Head- The Nut) and Smithton, a quaint rural, agricultural town.
The West coast, Strahan, takes a little longer as the roads are rugged, full of bends. A very beautiful 3.5-4 hour drive through dense, age old rainforests. You will see a few mining towns along the way, like Roseberry, Zeehan and Queenstown.
The East coast is very pretty. Binnalong Bay (The Bay of Fires), St Helens ( the largest town on the East Coast), Bicheno ( rightly called the Gold Coast of Tasmania), Coles Bay with Frycinet Peninsula and I could rave on for days yet.
If you love nature Tasmania is the place to visit, Launceston the place to go back to from your daily trips and Wisteria Lodge is where you can unwind to your hearts desire, enjoying total luxury at a very affordable price. Tasmania is good for the young and the young at heart. Whether you enjoy your nature walks or the natural produce the island offers, nothing can beat your holiday in the South. We are only 4-5000 km from the South Pole, yet enjoying a temperate climate.
