Over Easter break I travelled to Tasmania for eight days with one friend from the university and a fellow traveller from Germany. We decided to camp in order to save money and get the full natural experience, which is what Tasmania is know for. And the trip was such a success! We were able to see a large portion of the island state and were entirely independent of a strict schedule. Wildlife sightings were the highlights of our trip—we saw a wombat, a spotted quoll, and too many wallabies and birds to possibly count. Further, we got to experience the joys of self-guided travel, made possible by the small size of Tasmania and its abundant resources for tourists.
