    Not a good place for a relaxing stay, it's crowded, the rooms are stuffed with bunks and the kitchen and toilets are very dirty. Therefore it's cheap and has a good location near the town centre of Hobart.

I was very disappointed in the whole thing, maybe it's because my idea of art isn't the same as these kind of people.

    ... on the car if we had an accident, even if it was not our fault. Anyway we continued on through Hobart city and we were going to have a look around the waterfront but due to the confused GPS and the narrow and congested streets we decided to give that a miss and just head on down to Strahan.

    ... to do all of that. Research we made shows the Tasman Peninsula isn't blessed with a lot of water and there is no way we would take water from the tanks that Wayne and Helen had.
