Discover Tasmania, in Partnership with Travis

In partnership with Travis, the go-to visual trip planner for millennials and Gen Zs, we sat down with the Talented Alice of Miss Trixie Drinks Tea and discussed cakes, cookies, sugar, sun and holidays.


A much needed and deserved break saw Alice venture her way south to Tassie. After spending almost three weeks on the island itself, she figured she had this so-called traveller thing down-pat. And so, a travel guide to Tassie was created.


Travis has assisted us in curating a guide of additional must-see/do’s on a visual board, using their platform to make this trip as simple for you.


We’re starting the guide with Hobart-Bruny Island:


+ STAY

  • On Bruny Island - Alice stayed in this AirBnB which felt like her very own beach house. Spacious and totally adorable, Hosts Wendy and her Husband were delightful.
  • Cloudy Bay - Camping? Stay on Cloudy Bay, it’s a bit of a hike out but totally rewardable. If you love a surf, you’ll be able to catch a wave or two here also.

+ EAT

  • Bar Wa Izakaya - Japanese Restaurant
  • Fico - Italian Restaurant
  • Templo - Restaurant Celebrating Local Producers
  • La Sardina Locao - Tapas Restaurant
  • Shambles Brewery - Brewery
  • Little Missy - Patisserie
  • Ginger Brown - Cafe
  • The Bruny Baker - A Grab & Go fridge packed with Bread. Literally. 

+ DO

  • MONA -  Museum of Old and New Art. No matter how many times you’ve been to Tassie, you’ll always visit MONA. Be sure to book ahead. 
  • The Neck - Scenic Lookout. Alice thought it would be longer, but nonetheless, still gorgeous on the eyes and worth visiting.
  • The Lighthouse - Enjoy a walk up to the lighthouse for breathtaking views and Tassie air.

Tips from Alice*
Stay on the South of the Island as there is more happening and things to see.
Also, be sure to definitely pick up some bread from The Bruny Baker which is an honesty box system of hot bread on the side of the road. The baker fills the fridge (yesss the cutest old fridge) with hot bread and chocolate anzacs daily (actually I don’t know if it’s daily, so check!).


Next on the guide is Cradle Mountain-Bicheno:

Words from Alice: Cradle Mountain is pretty darn gorgeous and definitely worth a visit! There’s lots to see and plenty of walks. Be sure to check the weather forecast if you’re staying more than a night to determine when it’s best to go out and walk. And ensure to apply lots of sunscreen as we got burnt on a heavily overcast 18 degree day.

+ STAY

  • Cradle Mountain Highlanders - just divine! Alice’s style of accommodation which consists of cosy little cottages that felt like well equipped school cabins from Parent Trap. If you were here in winter, you would have the fire cranking! In Summer, you’ll opt for a great read, as Alice recommends.

+ EAT

  • Lifebuoy Cafe - Cafe 
  • Sweetbrew Espresso - Coffee Shop
  • The Coles Bay Ice Creamery - Ice Cream Shop
  • Melshell Oysters - Seafood Restaurant
  • The Lobster Shack - Seafood Restaurant 


+
 DO

  • Dennison Beach - Must Visit Beach
  • Honeymoon Bay - Must Visit Beach
  • Cradle Mountain National Park - Hike Trail, bring comfy shoes and your camera!
  • Wineglass Bay - Scenic Lookout
  • Oyster Tours at Freycinet Marine Farm - The ultimate farming experience where you get to farm your own oysters and mussels.
  • Devil’s Corner Winery - Winery
