Day 11: Up for breakfast a little later. Bus did not leave until 8:30. We headed southeast of Hobart to go to Port Arthur. On the way we stopped at another government sanctuary for the Tasmanian devil. They fed the devils while we watched so we could see how they devour their food. They are kind of like an oversized cat that is a …
Well we got away nice and early this morning, had a clear run to the airport and booked our car into the airport carpark. Flight was thirty minutes late getting away and we had a very bumpy flight with lots of turbulence which I didn't like much! Arrived in Hobart, stepped out of the plane and nearly got blown away.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHadleys Hotel Hobart
Hadley's could be a beautiful Hotel, it is set in a lovely old building in the middle of the city, walking distance to the wharf area and North Hobart.
