GoSeeAustralia's Aggie and Nick bed into 3 weeks on Tasmanian campervan tour

GoSeeAustralia is on campervan tour in Tasmania for the next three weeks showcasing Tasmania.

Agnes and Nick arrived at Hobart Airport just after 1pm on Monday, and Rob from TassieMotor Shacks collected them from the airport in the Tassie Motor Shacks shuttle bus.

At SevenMile Beach Cabin and Caravan Park Hobart, Rob took Aggie and Nick through familiarisation with thetop of the range Toyota Hi Top campervan which is their home for their Tasmaniantour.

Agnes says the Tassie Motor Shacks campervan is lovely, equipped with just abouteverything you could hope for, and looks very comfy. The campervan comes with all bedding,dishes, cutlery, cooking facilities, water, electric lights and of course the kitchen sink and outsideawning is thrown in too.

This practical attention to detail and safety extends to a fire extinguisherand first aid kit. Remember the days when you shook a mans hand and it was a deal, well, thatswhat GoSee likes about Tassie Motor Shacks, the staff are genuine.

The first thing we did is to drive to Sorell to the supermarket to stock up on essentials for the nextfew days, and we bought a roast chook for dinner, Agnes said.

Historic Sorell is wellknown as the gateway to the Convict Trail, which leads through Dunalley on its way to attractionslike the penal heritage of Port Arthur.

But not so generally appreciated is Sorell is lined with historicbuildings dating from 1826. Europeans first settled Sorell in 1811 and by 1816 it was the majorwheat centre for eastern Australia. Without it Sydney would have gone hungry.

Seven Mile Beach Cabin and Caravan Park Hobart is in bushland about 15 minutes from the Tasmanian capital and an easy drive from historic Tasmanian icons like Richmond and Port Arthur.

The well presented natural park is a few minutes easy walk from a magnificent beach on the shoreof Frederick Henry Bay. The crisp, clear water quickly sparks a tired body and mind.

Seven Mile Beach Cabin and Caravan Park has a pet friendly policy and well behaved pets areallowed, but they must be on a lead at all times.

The park is close to the Hobart Airport, golf courses and horse riding. Seven Mile Beach Cabin and Caravan Park is right on track for exploring the Hobart, Richmond and Port Arthur areas.
