WHERE TO STAY?

Study the above regions map above, as you need to make an early decision about where you are going to locate yourself, so that you can visit the attractions you desire. You can click on the region to go straight to it.

I also designed green maps to show the access roads and directions to the different attractions in each different regions. Note that some regions' attractions overlap in terms of driving time. All the attractions in these regions are less than one hour driving time away. If you have to drive for more than one hour, then you ought to think again about where you are staying.

The above Central Mountains Region green map shows you the pages on the attractions in this region. Other green maps will show you the attractions in their regions, plus those in neighboring regions that are relatively easy to reach. You should note the driving times, in the ORIENTATION section before you decide where to go.

Click on each place name on a green map to take you to that attraction page. The aim of the green maps is to show you what attractions are close, plus the road connections and directions.

Note that a dotted line, indicates that the road connection is complicated. The Central Mountains presented a difficult problem, as it is really three different regions. Note that if there is no joining white line between two places, then there is no link between them. For example, there is no connection between Mt JERUSALEM and DERWENT BRIDGE.

distance table

The distances shown above are my personal estimations and are not meant to be accurate. Note too that my table takes no account of how hard it will be to drive to these places. Winding roads will be much more demanding in terms of driver fatigue and time travelled. Each attraction page will tell you the average driving times in the ORIENTATION section.

burnie road signWhen you use my road map remember that in all the dark green mountainous areas, the roads are winding. Note too the ancient proverb that a short cut is the longest distance between two places!

For example if you cross Tasmania from St HELENS in the East to QUEENSTOWN in the West, you will travel about 400 kms. However, even if you don't stop, which is against safety advice, it will take you not 4 hours, but more than 6 hours, as you will be driving mostly on winding, mountainous roads.

burnie roadIn contrast the distance from HOBART in the South to LAUNCESTON in the North is about 200 kms. This is on the A1 Midland Highway, so the journey can be done at legal speeds in about 2 hours.

My region divisions are arbitrary. Different divisions of the north and south would work just as well. For example from the Tamar Valley around Launceston, you can easily access the top of the Midland region, as well as the western part of the North East and the closer eastern part of the Tarkine.

You can legally drive from Launceston to Devonport in about an hour. So don't hesitate to consider attractions just outside your region, if the ORIENTATION says it is close.

Tasmanian regions mapIf you click on the map to the left, you will go to the larger version. On this map, when you click on a particular regional area, you will taken to that regions' page. This will show you the attractions in that region. Some attractions outside that region are also linked, if access from your region is easy. For instance the TAMAR is quite close to some attractions in the MIDLANDS.

Each region is dominated by a Google map in which I have added the attractions and the recommended access roads. I used a variety of Google icons to mark these. Each Google map allows you to zoom in to the larger Google version of that map. At the greatest zoom setting, you can also get information about restaurants, hotels and other facilities at this location provided by Google. I used these icons on my Google maps:
