C.O. snapped with Tassie wildlife friends in Tourist Office
Pods are packed ready for the trip to Tasmania. We are flying to Hobart from Melbourne airport. Ollie called Uber and we had a taxi within 5 minutes. We piled in with our luggage and were taken to the domestic terminal 4. This was familiar to us from our trip to Adelaide. The Uber private taxi system appears to be extensively used. I would think that it is only really practical in cities. The flight by Jetstar was uneventful apart from circling round Hobart airport for about four times. The runway at Hobart in not very long and perhaps he was trying to find it. We landed with a bit of a thump and the brakes were hit hard. Told you the airport was not very long. Another Uber taxi to our hotel within minutes of phoning.
We checked in our hotel, stowed the pods and fairly soon went to walk to the nearby harbour to orientate ourselves. We dived into the Tourist Information Office and booked an all day cruise to Bruny Island on Friday after consulting the weather forecast and got more information on a number of other attractions. The Manager at the Tourist Office recommended
a restaurant called "Rock Wall" and their coffee rubbed steaks. The food was good and we enjoyed it but no rubs despite being tempted by the description given by the waitress. Perhaps another day. It was a pleasant sunny evening and we were thinking that the stories about Tassie weather being wet, cold and windy were exaggerated.
