Hobart to Devonport via the Lake Highway

Discussion in 'Roads, Touring, Journeys, and Travel' at netrider.net.au started by Nine Volt Heart, Nov 29, 2007.

  1. If someone has done this trip, could they please let me know whether the Lake Highway is worth the detour? Approx time from Hobart - Devonport going this way would be much appreciated.

  2. Do you mean the Lake Leake Road from Swansea to Campbell Town, or the road in the high country to the great lakes through Poatina?

  3. Any road that gets you off the Midland Boreway is worth the detour. If your heading for the ferry, leaving Hobart at 10am will see you in Devonport with time for a pizza before you board.

    Thanks for those responses. I should hve mentioned that my TomTom GPS unit always suggests turning of the Midland Sleepway at the Lake Highway (to Boswell, etc) - does this take you through to Deloraine?

    cheers
