Just got back from Tassie, the perfect place to live, mate of mine is in Sandy Bay, you wouldn't get better views anywhere in the world (seriously) but to get views like that the slope has to be fairly severe, his driveay is about 45 degrees down (almost), his wife cried for 3 days afer they moved in till she got used to the driveway..

Great roads great everything except it's freezing,, got off the plane back at Melbourne and it was colder.....go figure.

Haven't been to Hobart for a very long time.
I was only there for 2 days to catch up with a mate, stayed in Gladstone St http://www.salamancainn.com.au/ next to Salamanca Place, facinating old buildings, I saw more good pubs there than I've seen in Melbourne in a year plus food shops and other places, furniture etc just great .

Didn't drive anywhere but it was clear the traffic there was minimal, and the roads were superb so it would be good for a road trip.
Will go back one day to Launceston and drive around from there.

Let me know when you do and some of us can give a pretty good itinerary.

I'm heading back just as soon as I can.

Thanks I'll do that, 15 minutes in the traffic back here makes you wonder why you don't live there. :scratchchin:

The roads are magnificent and there's not a lot of traffic but I believe the police are out and about in numbers on the roads there and don't take prisoners.

Thanks for that, I'd be interested to hear from those involved re the police and any problems or did you all stick within the speed limit :D

it was 3 years ago too so things may have changed enforcement wise

There has been an AE Tassie run every year for the last 4 years - AFAIK it's all been awesome driving and fantastic networking with no constabulary issues.
