The Heritage Highway, the first e-Guide, of a planned series, A Cheapskate's Guide To Exploring Tasmania By Car, concentrates on Tasmania's magnificent, historic Midlands Highway and its surrounds.
Starting at the beautiful, heritage listed town of Evandale, it will head off to Longford and Cressy, then down the Midlands Highway looking at Perth, Campbell Town, Ross and Oatlands, before branching off to visit the historic town of Richmond.
The inclusion of relevant live external links throughout this work, to the best data available, makes this e-guide ideal for pre-planning your trip or use on the run as an on-demand tour guide.
Each of the sections on individual towns offers its history, places of interest, architecture and things to do as well as availability and location of public toilets, tourist information centres, doctors, vets, police and free camping sites, where available.
The guide is an easy read and its 11,000 plus words blossom into many tens-of-thousands more, on demand, through its live external links that offer nearly everything you need to know to make decisions for your journey, that include:
Spirit of Tasmania schedule and online booking site - distances and times by road (including fully functional Google maps) - accommodation (by town) - attractions (by town) - cafes and restaurants (by town) - events (by town) - shopping (by town) - tours (by town) - the Wine Route - Tasmanian cheese trail - Tasmanian beer and mead Trail - Tasmanian whisky trail - Tasmanian sweets and chocolate trail - Tasmanian farm-gate (fruit) - Tasmanian newspapers online - weather forecast (by town) - fishing licences and real estate for sale (by town), each of which is kept up to date by its own webmaster.
Despite the fact that this work has been written by a serious 'cheapskate', you will be able to choose your own style of visit, ranging from the most basic to absolute luxury, so if you are excited by the thought of exploring Tasmania, you cherish history and love to travel, the Heritage Highway is a must read.
