Seafood and sites.

We are heading to Tasmania next week. We are interested in delicious seafood that isn't ridiculously priced. We like walking, nature and relaxing. Any local suggestions would be appreciated. Day 1 Hobart. Day 2-3 Eagleneck, Day 4 Bicheno, Day 5 Derwent Bridge. Day 6-7 Strahan, Day 8-9 Cradle mtn, Day 10 Launceston.

Sadly, there is a world and national market for seafood. There are no great bargains to be had. The best way to minimise cost is to avoid high rent areas and classy restaurants.

In Hobart, try Fish 349 in North Hobart or the Fish Bar in Bellerive.

On the way to Port Arthur, you'll pass Barilla Bay Oysters and a couple of seafood places at Dunalley.

On the road into Freycinet National Park, you'll go by Freycinet Marine roadside seafood bar. There are also fish shops in most of the east coast towns.

There are two good fish shops in Launceston: Kyemah and Petuna, but they sell only fresh seafood. Hallam's Seafood is the best seafood restaurant around.

Thanks for the reply, Any suggestions for quiet walks and sites around Eagleneck? We like to do the touristy things but also not as popular and quiet attractions.

Of course, everyone goes through Eaglehawk Neck. :)

For something a bit quieter, continue on to Taranna, turn right and head around the bay to the Coal Mines Historic Site. You won't find many people there: http://coalmines.org.au/

Or you could walk to Waterfall Bay from the Devil's Kitchen carpark. Again, not many people.

Hi,

This is not near Eaglehawk Neck, but if you drive about half way between Tarana and Port Arthur there's a turn off to the left to the beautiful Fortescue Bay, there's also a walk (not easy but doable) from the beach heading north the tracks called the Tasman Trail go as far as Bivouac Bay, walk #3 on the attached link.

www.parks.tas.gov.au/index.aspx?base=1315

You don't have to do the walk to Bivouac Bay, the Fortescue Bay beach is a beautiful spot for a picnic and a walk along the beach.

Safe travels - Robert

If you're around eaglhawk neck go to the food van at the Blowhole car park 'Doolicious' it has great seafood. Fish for fish and chips is always local and fresh and they often have oysters and crayfish (rock lobster).
