    National Automobile Museum of Tasmania

    What an impressive collection! We were lucky to see the Vintage Years theme - think Austin 7, Desoto Coupe and a beautiful 1925 Moon Roadster. The boys and I were entertained and enthralled the whole two hours we were there, they especially loved getting to sit in the bright yellow E49 Charger.

    Tasmanian Transport Museum

    Trains, trams, buses, fire engines, the boys loved them all, especially the few that were open to be walked through. A great Saturday afternoon activity, and there was plenty to see and learn about.

    Hartz Mountains National Park

    Though a bit of a drive out (2 hours) it's worth it. The scenery is very "Tassie", we took that to mean beautiful and unique. Though we only made it about halfway up to the peak, we were still treated to great views of the surrounding area. Don't forget a national park pass! They're just $10 per car for a day.

    Even though it was raining, that didn't stop us from mini put... mainly because the whole course is indoors! 18 holes of challenging putting, glowing hallways and cartoon landscapes, plus the boys had a turn in the mirror maze and on the bouncy castle. They couldn't stop smiling, and we had a great time too, even though my putting skills are non existent.

    A 200 meter dive off an 18 meter cliff? Ok! A hang glider is attached to a wire for a controlled flight over nice scenery. We all had a go and the boys loved it. For $15/20 each, it was a great experience at a reasonable price. We all felt safe and secure.

    While we had fantastic coffee, the boys got a bit of a culture shock - "those are big CDs dad!". Doubling as a music/record shop, it was great to hear vinyl being played again and the groovy, retro atmosphere was the cherry on top.

    Step in and take a step back in time to have dinner at a Victorian Georgian inn. Dive into the salad bar and feast on a steak perfectly cooked by Josh or Chris. We came here after the boys saw it when we drove by, and entertained us with their overactive imaginations about how they would dine "in jail". While we weren't shackled or cuffed, I would happily go back!

    What an interesting setup - one part laundry and one part cafe, and it works! The place was buzzing the whole time we were there. The atmosphere is funky and retro. While the boys tucked into pancakes we enjoyed an eggs Benedict and French toast. Yum. We were lucky to get a table (we didn't book) but even people who were too late were looked after and accommodated.

    Unfortunately when we ventured in here (being dragged by the boys) the place was so busy we were unable to get a seat. But we were served with smiles and the boys were treated to a number of free samples. We all love chocolate, so this was heaven for us! We came away with a few bags of chocolate coated things (almonds, macadamias, licorice) while the boys had a hot chocolate and choco-pop.

    After being told a number of times to eat at Taco Taco, we finally tracked it down on Brisbane st one evening. Wow! Combinations and flavours are spot on, especially that pulled pork... For a long time afterwards I could not get the "taco taco tummy yummy" tune the boys had created out of my head.
