With so many family friendly sights, attractions and tours, Tasmania is the perfect destination to holiday with the family. Having 3 young boys, we love getting out and about and exploring all that Tasmania has to offer.
Locals parks are often where we spend our weekends with a great range around the Hobart/Southern Tasmania region. Some worth visiting include Long Beach at Sandy Bay, Princes Park in Battery Point, Bellerive Beach Park in Bellerive and our personal favourite and local park, Dru Point in Margate. Dru Point is located a 25-minute drive from the Hobart CBD and has an enclosed playground, a bike track area with traffic lights and signs, BBQ areas, a kiosk which is open during the summer months, plenty of shade and lots of free car parking.
A further 15-minute drive from Margate is Kettering, which is the gateway to Bruny Island, take your vehicle on the ‘Mirambeena’ ferry from Kettering to Bruny Island. You could take the 3-hour wilderness cruise which departs from Adventure Bay, visit the Bruny Island Berry Farm, the Bruny Island Chocolate Company, or spend some time building sandcastles on any of the pristine beaches on the island.
