Travel Blogs from Hobart
Got up at 4:30 am for a 6:30 flight from Armidale to Sydney and then Sydney to Hobart. Both flights when smoothly, both flights on time and hence we arrived at the scheduled time of 11:20 am.

... for the return journey. At the port, after a quick coffee break and engine assessment the bad news was that the engine was pretty much done so we would not be able to go back out, but we would all get a full refund.
