It was a 20min drive from our motel to the Summit and the road was quite narrow at times. Once at the top we were rewarded with magnificent slightly hazy views and a very rocky precipice.
We then ventured along to Long Beach for a casual lunch at a bakery where we each had salads and cold ice-cream based drinks. The beach area has a lovely promenade from where we saw some of the Sydney to Hobart yachts arriving.
The Taste Festival is an event run each year in Hobart and this was the next stop on our journey. This is a Food, Wine & Beer festival with a variety of entertainment that runs for 7 days and nights with superb food and beverages. Very enjoyable.
