Apparently Hobart is becoming a top destinations for Girls Weekends. I’m not surprised, Hobart is a beautiful city, we have great restaurants like Templo, cultural highlights like MONA and lots of exciting things to do like Mountain Bike Tours with us. But my knowledge of what might make up a great girls weekend is limited to things I’d like to do on a weekend. Get up early, eat a big hearty breakfast with coffee, ride bikes all day, eat a big hearty meal with beer, go to bed and repeat. Fortunately we recently had a group of girls on a girls weekend ride with us. They had a great time and I asked Kim, the group organizer, if she could write down their itinerary. I’ve copied Kim’s email below. I have made a few edits to clarify and elaborate but in essence this is Kim’s plan for a great Girls Weekend in Hobart. Thanks Kim…
Thank you. Everyone said the ride with you and Tom was their highlight of the trip, so thank you.
Pick a cafe for Breakfast we then split some went to Mona via the Posh Pit on he ferry well worth the upgrade according to the girls. Mona also didn’t disappoint. Everyone had a great time there. They also had a very nice lunch at The Source.
Myself and three others caught a cab to Kettering and got the ferry to Bruny Island to meet a friend who had a car. We weren’t disappointed.
We walked up the Neck Lookout, checked out Cloudy Bay, adventure bay (where we saw a albino wallaby and had an icy swim), Bruny Island Premium Wines where we sampled a charcuterie board of preserved and cured meats, pickles, aoli, oysters and bread. We had a look at Bruny Island Chocolate co. Next stop was Bruny Island Cheese for lunch where we sampled a few menu items including the saint baked in honey.
Then we had a look at the Bruny Island Honey Pot where you can pick up all types of honey.
Our last food stop was Get Shucked Oysters where we had the freshest Oysters we have ever had. Last stop was Bruny House of Whisky where we sampled a paddle of four whiskey’s and four vodka’s (can recommend the Sheep’s Whey vodka). Then ferry back.
Walk around the markets in the morning and have breakfast there.
Check out the seafood on the water then head on a mountain bike tour with Hobart Mountain Bike Tours for the afternoon.
We headed to Franklin for dinner then to the Den for a dance.
Breakfast then headed to the airport. You could also head to the farmers markets.
The above is pretty detailed, I hope it helps. If you need to change it feel free or if you need anything else, let me know.
We all had a ball on your tour and in Tassie. The food, wine and people are amazing.
