Upcoming Trip, Part 3 - Tasmania

Subject: Upcoming Trip, Part 3 - Tasmania
Date: Sat, 16 Sep 2006 14:45:57 EDT
The third part of my upcoming birding trip to Australia will be in  Tasmania. 
 I'd be very interested in any specific tips or sites along my  itinerary, 
and I would also be very interested in birding with local  birders anyplace 
along my way.  This will be my first visit to Tasmania,  and I'm really looking 
forward to seeing it.
I plan to arrive in Hobart on Saturday night, 4 November, and stay near the  
On Sunday, 5 November, I plan to bird my way to Bruny Island, stopping at  Mt 
Wellington/Fern Tree and the Peter Murrell Conservation area.
I'm staying on Bruny Sunday and Monday nights (5 and 6 November), and I'd  be 
interested in knowing of any specific sites I should check out on the  
island.  Just in case any Tassie birder wanted to have a night or two away,  I 
have a chalet on the beach with an extra bedroom and would be glad to  have 
someone stay over.
On Tuesday, 7 November, I plan to drive to Westerways, near Mt Field Nat'l  
Park, birding along the way.
On Wednesday, 8 November, the plan is to drive to Cradle Mountain, probably  
via Queenstown and Strahan, although I would be interested in advice about  
routing, as well as any information about birding sites along the way.
I plan to spend two nights at Cradle Mountain (Wednesday and Thursday, 8  and 
9 November), as much for the scenery and sightseeing as the birding, but I  
would also like to know of any specific places in that area to look for  
interesting birds.
On Friday, 10 November, I plan to drive back to the Hobart area, and I  would 
like advice on what route to take, as well as any birding sites along the  
way.  I have been thinking of visiting the caves at Mole Creek  Karst Nat'l 
Park, and I'm not sure what route to take from there back to  Hobart.
I don't leave until the late afternoon on Saturday, 11 November, so I hope  
to do some birding in the morning, somewhere in the Hobart area.  Any  advice

Thanks very much for any suggestions or comments on my plans.
