Solid Walking Boots

you’re seeking a casual day walk around the city or a six night trek of
Lake St Clair, a solid pair of walking boots will serve you well on your
motorhome journey around Tasmania.
Waterproof Jacket & All Weather Clothing
It’s often said that Tasmania can experience four seasons in
one day. So, don’t get caught out in the rain and be sure to bring a
water proof jacket in your bag just in case! It’s also a sensible idea
to pack layered clothing including thermals and jumpers to peel off on
moderate days. Though winter may not be Tasmania’s warmest time of year,
the sun will still heat you up quickly!
A visit to the Apple Isle will see you knee-deep in pure
unadulterated nature which often impacts on state-wide signal access. If
you’re planning on snuggling up in the comfort of your motorhome at
night, we recommend bringing along some DVDs to ensure you make the most
of your on board television.

No matter what time of year, the rays of the Tasmanian sun
can be piercing and the UV level high. Be sure to bring along some sun
protection including hats, sun cream and sunglasses to protect yourself
