Australian Road Trip with the Tassie Young Nomads

9 Jul 2014

In May 2014 Wendy and James from Hobart packed up their lives into their new caravan and hit the open road on a journey of a lifetime travelling around Australia.  They’re sharing their story along the way with their blog Tassie Young Nomads.

Soon after heading off from Hobart Wendy and James stayed at Discovery Parks – Devonport for a few nights before boarding the Spirit of Tasmania, here’s some excerpts and photos of their stay:

We have arrived in Devonport, staying at the Discovery Park, we are now all settled in our new surroundings for the next few days. We just watched the Spirit of Tasmania leave from our van so starting to get excited about our trip. I can hear the waves and they sound so close.

This is great little park, very clean and tidy and also offering drive thru sites with ensuite. Our ensuite had spa so had to test it out today. Getting excited for tomorrow.

Chill out day today before boarding the spirit tonight and the big island tomorrow.

Boarding the Spirit Of Tasmania last night and leaving this morning. One picture of inside was tight squeeze but people behind us could hardly open there door. Very impressed with facilities on the Spirit and rooms and beds comfy. Had good crossing but they warned it would be rough so we opted for early night.


We’ll catch up with the Tassie Young Nomads later in their journey as they continue their trip around Australia!
