something a little more lighthearted today…..
Here’s my working list of the “best of” for Tassie….compiled as I travel around this fine state. While it may seem like it initially, rest assured they’re not all food related…lest you get the wrong idea 😉
Feel free to leave me recommendations…
Best Hamburger: Burger Got Soul, Launceston. The “Birds of a Feather” is my favourite.
Best Hot Chips: Burger Got Soul, Launceston. Particularly with sweet chilli mayo dipping sauce – outstanding!
Best Chocolate Milkshake: Burger Got Soul, Launceston. I swear this is not a conspiracy, they are just really good milkshakes!
Best Vanilla Slice: the ‘northern’ bakery in Ross. Delicious. By the way, there is no neat way to eat a vanilla slice, just enjoy it!
Best Cream Bun: Crusty’s Bakery, Wivenhoe (Burnie). Fantastic….thanks Kim for introducing me!
Best Chunky Steak Pie: Exeter Bakery. chunky goodness
Best Seafood deal: 2kg ‘pieces’ packs of fresh salmon from the Salmon Shop @ Salamanca
Best Lolly Shop: Campbell Town. Or so my kids tell me (honest).
Best Road: unquestionably the Sideling Range road, from Launceston to Scotsdale. Unreal!
Best Beach: Boat Harbour Beach. Haven’t stayed there yet, but we will!
Best Family Walk: Around the top of the Nut at Stanley. Really enjoyable & great views
Best Urban Walk: Launceston’s Cataract Gorge (sorry Hobart)
Best Family Bike Trails: Ulverstone – from the caravan park all the way to the ‘Rocket Park’
Best Bike Ride: Ulverstone to Chasm Creek and back…along the coast road
Best Blueberries: Pick your own…from the farm at Lilydale
Best “Food” Tourist Activity: D’Anvers Chocolate Factory @ Latrobe
Best Mountain Views: Looking south to the Western Arthurs from the Red Knoll lookout at Lake Pedder…..or the central highlands from summit of Mt Pillinger
Best Coastal Scenery: Tasman Peninsula
Best Sporting Event: Mitch reckons it was the Lions defeating Hawthorn @ Aurora….but I’m definitely going with Targa Tasmania
Got some suggestions for me of other places to try? Or of new categories? Fire away!
