I’m having a few days off and thought I would spend it at Melaleuca Tasmania. It’s located in the South West of Tasmania and is rather remote. The only way to get there is by boat, plane or walking.
I’m going to fly with Par Avion but first Hobart.
I have had a Virgin credit card for literally decades and as such, earned several thousand frequent flier points, so I have used them to get to Tassie traveling Business Class. This was a first for me and it was rather nice. Pity it’s a short trip. The staff on the plane treat you like a “special” person, something I could get used to.
I was greeted at the airport by a lovely Beagle who thankfully didn’t want to know me.
I’m staying at the Best Western nearby the CBD of Hobart. I think the word “Best” is a little extravagant but it’s a good place to stay.

Needless to say I visited the Salamanca market. It was good but it rained. It didn’t seem to bother the locals. I think it’s rained here before.
There’s some fantastic old buildings and little laneways down by the docks.
However, some bad news. I’ve just been informed that my flight to Melaleuca has been cancelled due to poor visibility. It seems I will be staying an extra day in Hobart.
I may check out the Botanical Gardens and do a little bird watching.
