I am looking to tour Tasmania (In Australia) in February 2009. I am looking to stay in Backpackers and Youth Hostels and I would like to know if anyone has been there and done this or is there anywhere that is more bike friendly.
I would prefer to stay in a tent, but Tasmania is very windy and rains allot. Spending night after night cold and wet in a tent after riding up hill into a head wind (the standard direction the wind blows when your on tour), doesn't appeal to me.
Also if there is anyone touring Tasmania at the same time it would be interesting to meet up for a coffee.
