Hi Maggie,

Welcome to TravelBlog.

I lived in Tassie for about 7 years, and have been back a couple of times since. It is a great place for a holiday!

My first blog entry was on Tassie actually (easy to find), and there's another one in there somewhere if you're interested. Reply to this

I love Tassie but there are 2 types of people.They're either the friendliest people in Australia or the rudest.There is no middle ground Reply to this

We used to holiday to both Queensland and Tasmania a lot when I was growing up. To be honest I'm not the biggest Tasmania fan. My memories of it were that it was cold (even though we visited in Summer) and generally fairly boring. Of course I was traveling with my parents which may be why I felt that way. :D I do remember the Chocolate Factory being cool and a fabulous small town filled with murals painted on the walls of the buildings. Apart from that I don't remember much about it. It seemed very countryish to me. Too slow for my tastes. Depends that you're looking for though. If you're big into nature then I've heard it's good for that kind of trip. Reply to this
