I've just been in Tasmania for four days. I went to Launceston and stayed with my cousin and his wife which was great. It was a nice change from the big cities ('Lonnie' has a population of 100,000). Didn't make it to Hobart or some of the more well known tourist spots (except for Bay of Fires, ranked by some as one of the best beaches in the world) but did enjoy a boat cruise and a visit to a beautiful forest. I went there and back on the Spirit of Tasmania ferry, which takes about nine hours each way, chickenfeed compared to my MSC Basel trip.
Endurance Rating for the Spirit of Tasmania: 5. Pretty easy really, though a bit crowded.
