The journey from Launceston to Hobart was lengthy, with very few bubbles.

by Abbey

You may travel to Tasmania in only one short week, but you’ll quickly realise that you need more. We have already touched on a few points in this blog post, and we already know that we must return.

This blog chronicles a night spent in Launceston, the lengthy journey to Hobart, two nights spent in Hobart, and two dives at Eagleneck, which is adjacent to Tasman National Park. The wine tastings and golf are over, but trust me—we could still do a lot more with those two!

It takes little over two hours to travel by car from Tasmania’s two largest cities, Launceston and Hobart. This would be far too simple, and we wouldn’t get to see many of this incredible island’s beauties.

Instead, we are making our way back west for a long day of driving. My only objective is to get to Hobart before dusk; everything else will depend on how we feel that day. While returning to Burnie, we spend the first sixty minutes of our drive along the highway. However, after that, we turn off and travel along the winding, little roads that lead to Cradle Mountain National Park.


The drive is the only thing scheduled for today; we’ll see how it goes! An unanticipated first stop—a truffle farm! Indeed, they also do it here. Nothing new because it’s not the season. Additionally, unlike the Italians, they do not process them into glass jars. Oh, and the cost is exorbitant. Truffles are known to be pricey. It is similar to a workout with caviare in certain places. A thirty-gram jar can be purchased for thirty dollars, or three hundred dollars. It all depends on your preferences and, incidentally, on your financial situation and true desires. With that, we took some truffle salt with us.

Cradel Mountain National Park is the next location. We are travelling there via the narrow roads. The road is really steep and not at all straight! However, it begins to be quite lovely. reached the National Park’s tourist centre. Massive lines mean that, at the very least, you’ll need four to five hours to fully enjoy this site. Yes, we are a little irritated. Yes, we will return. No, we won’t hurry inside because there is still a lot to see outside.

We take short hikes to both left and right, stopping at a waterfall and an amazing viewpoint. We’re going to have a casual lunch in Queenstown. This is a ghost village of miners. Try not to draw any comparisons between Queenstown, New Zealand, and Queenstown, Tasmania. For the record, Queenstown, South Africa, is currently in a worse situation than Tasmania! While I haven’t yet located one in the USA, Queenstowns are undoubtedly out there!

The ride is very lovely. We are almost there—we should get in Hobart before dusk! We are making progress towards our destination.


We will be staying at an Accor Mantra Hotel on the fringe of the CBD for the next two nights. This is a glorified service apartment rather than a true hotel. We get to a spacious apartment with a lovely kitchen. After dropping off the luggage, we head directly to the grocery store! I attempted to locate oysters, but was unable. The local fishmongers likewise don’t have very good selections. So, once more, it’s lamb from the area and Tasmanian salmon—not too terrible, huh? And to go with those, we have the bubbly and wine!

I’m scheduled to dive adjacent to Eagleneck twice the following morning, 75 kilometres away. Two kelp dives are planned in an attempt to locate the elusive Sea dragon. Not in this season. The kelp dive was a lot of fun, but I’ll have to return to South Australia in 2024 to try to find those unusual animals again! I hope you like the photos of the dive! Unexpected occurrences (fun to describe, isn’t it?) made me the diver and guide for those two dives; the water was a comfortable 18 degrees, and the depth was peaceful, between 9 and 17 metres.
