I want to head to Tasmania. Anyone been there?[momo]

Granted i'm not going there any time soon, i'd just like to visit, and most likely live there at some point. It's supposed to be pretty nice, so i'm wondering if anyones been there.

Cold. Wet. Beautiful. Cheap.

Yeah, I've been there. Arrived in 1968,* stayed for two and a half weeks, no, years, no, decades. Been back a few, okay, several, okay, dozens of times. What do you want to know?

*Also, coincidentally, the first time I visited Earth.

By the way, if you want cold, go between June and August. Outside the winter months it's not particularly cold. In summer it's as hot as most of Australia's south-east; goes over 30°C often, and sometimes hits the high 30s. dg is from Queensland, so he probably reckons anything under 30 is cold! :)
