Hi all

I have noticed that quite a few are travelling to Tassie in Jan/Feb/March

I have a shack at White Beach which is just out of Nubeena which is 11k from Port Arthur and would love to catch up with some of you if you are down - our BT is parked at the shack at the moment and we won't be off until May/June. Give us a call on 0418781042 and we will provide some hospitality and maybe a Crayfish or Atlantic Salmon if they are still about.

I would also like to pass on an invite by the president of the local RSL ( Tasman ex-Servicemen's and Women's Association.

They are offering free parking of self contained caravan's at the club which is a great area with showers and toilet availabe - donation accepted the Nubeena Council have a Dump point which is handy. The presidentts name is Fred Wilson his home numbers are 03 62502780/0400807394 and the Clun number is 03 62502135.

This is an excellent site acroos the road from Parsons Bay and with great views.

There is a caravan park at White Beach but is usually booked out ( and it is a caravan park!) although it is located right on the beach.

Hope to see some of you - let me know if you are interested

Regards

Wayne

Very kind of you Wayne, we loved Tassie when we visitied Dec 2005 for around 7 - 8 weeks, so much free camping that is encouraged. We will be back for another visit at some time.

Cheers

Hi Wayne & Pat,

We depart the north island for the great South Island on Saturday (12 Jan); we will be visiting the Tassie Bushies near Devonport to start with and alpaca breeding friends near Huonville and will definately take you up on your offer to visit near the prison.
We plan to stay in Tassie for about 3 months so will phone you a little further down the track.

Cheers from Martin & Christine

Hi Wayne & Pat

Thanks for the kind invite to visit. If we are in the area we would love to catch up and get some local tips on some of Tassie's hotspots.

We arrive on the 26th January with the main aim this trip of getting to the top of Cradle Mountain and the Walls of Jerusalem (In good weather).
Tassie is one of our favourite spots and rivals many aspects of NZ's South Island.
This will be our third visit, the last two aboard our Kedron 16' pop-top. It was freezing at times but our 03/07 19' BT is like a palace to us especially with the Webasto heater aboard.

Hope to see you there.

Happy & safe travels

Kind Regards
Greg & Diane

Wayne, with apologies for butting in on your thread, as those going to Tassie will be likely to follow this thread i draw attention to the trip planning document

'Hints for Touring Tassie' can be found in the documents folder - go to "my home" and scroll down to the documents and find it in the list, posted January 2006. Peter and Jennifer placed this excellent touring advice at a time when around 10 BT owners were heading to Tassie. When my daughter who had spent a year in Tasmania saw it, she said it is brilliant, as the plan takes you around the outer edge of the island, as well as around the inland, without backtracking.

All going this year, i envy you and have wonderful memories of our 7 weeks there almost two years ago. Wonderful and very scenic island, with wonderful friendly people in the good old fashioned way.
