Getting There -- Tassielink (tel. 1300/300 520 in Australia, or 03/6230 8900; www.tigerline.com.au) runs coaches between Strahan and Launceston, Devonport, and Cradle Mountain and to Hobart. The trip from Launceston takes more than 8 hours. The drive from Hobart to Strahan takes about 4 1/2 hours without stops. From Devonport, allow 3 1/2 hours. Although the roads are good, they twist and turn and are particularly hazardous at night, when nocturnal animals come out to feed. The cheapest way to travel between these places is by bus with a Tassielink Explorer Pass.
