Day 11: Hollybank Treetops Adventure, Cataract Gorge. Stay Launceston.
Day 12: Flight to Melbourne.

Our original plan was to do Port Arthur on the afternoon of Day 2 and Swansea on Day 4. However, we had to change our plans as our son was recovering from fever and we didn’t want to be too taxing on the first few days.

There are other attractions that we had to forgo – Bruny Island, Tahune Airwalk, Bay of Fires, Stanley and Strahan, as they are too far to travel given our limited time. We did not visit Bridestowe Lavender Farm as we were not sure if there are lavenders blooming at that time.

Will plan to do a more detailed info and include some photos in the next few posts.
