Helen Avaient is an over 50-year-old mature age solo traveller. Actually, she is more an adventurer, an explorer, a globetrotter, a jet-setter, a tourist, a voyager, as well as a brave or crazy journalist. But like all these adventurous spirits she too needed some time out. And that she did with CradleCoast Tours in Tasmania.

“A great way to get to know a new area is to take a tour with a local company. They have a passion for their local area and are keen to share this love with others. Howard Smith from Cradle Coast Tours offers various tours of the North West Tasmanian area.
I had the pleasure of taking a full day wine and food tour with Howard and four other tourists recently. Having an expert drive the mini bus gives you a chance to look outside and really savour the green rolling hills of the countryside.

After an amazing day of tastings, samplings, fantastic company and delightful views of the Tasmanian countryside it was nice to be dropped off right at home. During the day Howard kept us entertained with stories of local personalities and details about the various places we visited. By visiting a variety of venues in the one tour, you can decide if you wish to return to any or all of them for a longer period at a later date. This was a much more enjoyable experience than travelling the same destinations by yourself and one that I highly recommend doing when visiting Tasmania.
