The Overland Kid - AbeBooks - Max Brand:
Our Values In a pivotal stage of my life Overland was there to teach me how to become a leader. We felt Jackson would benefit from an experience that promoted independence. We wanted him with good kids and inspiring leaders so he could grow. Overland teaches reverence, respect and appreciation for the natural world.

Top-end, and some midrange, hotels are well versed in the needs of guests with children. Dining with kids in Tasmania rarely causes any hassles. If you sidestep the flashier restaurants, children are generally welcomed.
Most places can supply high chairs. Dedicated kids menus are common, but selections are usually uninspiring ham-and-pineapple pizza, fish fingers, chicken nuggets etc. If a restaurant doesn't have a kids menu, find something on the regular menu and ask the kitchen to adapt it. If the sun is shining, there are plenty of picnic spots around the state, many with free barbecues.
During summer, Tassie is also a great place to buy fresh fruit at roadside stalls. Most Tasmanians are relaxed about public breastfeeding and nappy changing: a parent using the open boot of a car as a nappy-changing area is a common sight!

Hobart and most major towns also have public rooms where parents can go to feed their baby or change a nappy; ask at the local visitor centre or city councils. Items such as infant formula and disposable nappies are widely available.
In Hobart contact the Mobile Nanny Service , or check out the statewide listings on www. Nearly all tourist attractions offer kids' prices, with kids aged under four or five often admitted free. Accommodation concessions often apply to children under 12 years sharing the same room as adults. To aid your planning once you get to Tassie, pick up the free LetsGoKids magazine www.
When it comes to family holidays, Tasmania is a winner during summer. Having said that, summer is peak season and school-holiday time: expect pricey accommodation and a lot of booking ahead for transport and beds especially interstate flights, rental cars, the Spirit of Tasmania ferry, camping grounds and motels.
If your own kids don't need to be at school, a better bet may be the shoulder months of March and April sidestepping Easter and November, when the weather's still good and there's less pressure on the tourism sector. Winter is even better if you don't mind the cold and aren't into swimming and camping — you'll have the whole place to yourselves! Definitely pack beach gear for your summer holiday, but also throw in a few thermal long-sleeve tops, beanies and jackets.
Seven Mile Beach The best safe-swimming beach near Hobart. Fortescue Bay If you've made the effort to drive in here, you might as well camp for the night. And have a swim. Cataract Gorge Cool off in the free outdoor swimming pool at First Basin. Sorell Fruit Farm Bag your own fruit cherries, strawberries, apricots, apples etc on the doorstep of the Tasman Peninsula.
