My travel adviser paid close attention to the kinds of things my husband and I were interested in, presented well thought out itineraries, and revised them to suit our pace and feedback. Everything was carefully organised, including flights, hotels, car rental, vouchers for specific sight-seeing and trips, and all went very smoothly and efficiently. I knew very little about Tasmania before our visit, so was delighted with the choices made on our behalf.
However, our trip to Bonnet Island (to see penguins, etc) was cancelled due to minimum number of trippers (4) not having signed up and to bad weather; a warning that this could happen would have been desirable. Also the last part--the drive to Hobart from Strahan took over 5+ hours , and was pretty tiring. Since Gordon River boat trip did not end till 2.00 pm, it was nearly 8 pm by the time we found our hotel in Hobart.
Uluru at sunset and sunrise of course, but Tasmania's Cradle Mountain Wilderness area --staying and walking there was the highlight. Also the cruise from Strahan to Sarah's Island in Macquarie Harbour and up the Gordon River to a wilderness area there. Lastly, the MONA art museum in Hobart.
I would try to spend another day or two near Uluru so that I could also visit the Olgas; ideally a third night/second day in Cradle Mountain, and a further day in Hobart, so that I could visit both Port Arthur and the MONA (we were scheduled to visit the former, but opted for the latter, given lack of time on last day to get car to airport, etc).
