Late in the afternoon in Melbourne we broaded the Able Tasman for the overnight ferry ride to Devonport in Tasmania. After docking and riding the bike off the ferry we headed along the coast to Burnie and onto Stanley. Our first night in Tassie was spent in a camping ground just past Smithton. The next day we rode back to Burnie and headed inland to Queenstown. Taking the Murchison Hwy you'll find a good bit of road between Oonah and Parrawe, but the whole trip to Queenstown is a good ride. From Queenstown you must check out Strahan as its worth a look. Next we headed to Hobart on the Lyell Hwy, what great piece of road!! You have so many good rides to take and so much to see. Places like Port Arthur is a must and its also a good ride as well heading back up the East Coast to St Marys. As you can see from the map we tried to have a good look around the state of Tassie.
For the trip home after arriving back from Tasmania we decided to take the coast road heading out to Moe also Sale and continuing to Lakes Entrance and following the Princes Highway until Cann River. From here we took the Monaro Highway heading to Cooma and onto Canberra where we decided to spend the night. The Monaro Highway was a excellent ride, check it out. Leaving Canberra the next day we just took the Federal Highway back to the Hume Highway through Sydney and back up the Pacific Highway all the way to Brisbane. Along the way we spent one more night at Bulahdelah on the New South Wales coast.
