On the Road Tasmania - - News -

Disem­bark Spirit of Tas­ma­nia and head along the Bass High­way (A1) to El­iz­a­beth Town. Be sure to stop in at award-win­ning Ash­grove Cheese to sam­ple tra­di­tional English cheeses as well as quirkier va­ri­eties like ‘Wild Wasabi’. Then it’s on­wards to Christ­mas Hills Rasp­berry Farm Café for a hearty rasp­berry-in­spired break­fast. Grab some choco­late-cov­ered rasp­ber­ries for the drive and con­tinue on to Launce­s­ton. Stock up on Tas­ma­nian arts and crafts at the not-for-profit De­sign Cen­tre, be­fore head­ing to pic­turesque Cataract Gorge for a ride on the world’s long­est sin­gle span chair­lift. For up­mar­ket seafood, book a ta­ble at Still­wa­ter or for sub­lime dry-aged beef you can’t beat the Black Cow Bistro. Art en­thu­si­asts will en­joy a stay at the Hather­ley Bir­rell Col­lec­tion. Or choose self-cater­ing apart­ments, like those at TWOFOURTWO.
