Day 1 Hobart – Freycinet
If you haven’t done much in Hobart, check out the Salamanca Markets before picking up your relocation vehicle. Once you’ve settled in, make your way to Freycinet. Freycinet holds some of the most beautiful water-filled views and bays with even more swoony names: eg Honeymoon Bay, Sleepy Bay, Wineglass Bay. You might not get to see them all, but sunset at Cape Tourville is absolutely stunning.
If Freycinet doesn’t sound like your cup of Tasmanian coffee, head over to Strahan, stopping for a hike or two at Cradle Mountain National Park. Definitely make the most of the crisp air, but apply litres of sunscreen because I swear, the sun is more brutal here (science may say otherwise).
You can spend the night in luxury at Freycinet Lodge or make the most of the wilderness by camping under the stars.
Day 2 Launceston – Tamar Valley
Design your own Tamar Valley wine route (or do a tour) and grab some yoghurt from the Tamar Valley Dairy. Try Hallam’s Waterfront in Launceston for a gourmet meal and view of the yacht basin before you continue your drive. We did our own ‘Tasting trail’ all the way to Devonport – but there are maps online with all the food factories, breweries and vineyards. Highlights include Seven Sheds Brewery and Anvers Chocolate Factory. Day 2 is a day of driving and eating apparently.
You could either stay in Launceston or head to Devonport for the overnight Spirit of Tasmania back to the Port of Melbourne. Most relocations include free ferry for the vehicle and sometimes for the driver.
Day 3 Melbourne
See Melbourne’s South before returning the vehicle. Enjoy what the city is famous for – fashion, food and footy! Most relocations from Tasmania to Melbourne are 3 days, but you may be able to add extra days.
