Things to do as you travel from Hobart to Dover:
Perhaps you could stop at The Apple Shed at Grove (just before Huonville) and grab some yummy ciders. You could also see the apple museum and find out some interesting information about the history of apple farming in the Huon Valley.
If you are after a taste of some local wines then Home Hill Winery at Ranelagh is worth a look (10 minute detour). If you are into sushi then Masaaki's Sushi at Geeveston is a must. Google Masaaki sushi and decide for your self :) The Post Office Restaurant in Dover will have you catered for dinner with a selection of seafood and other a la carte items and don't forget some great tasting pizza. Currently opened Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening. Our favourite is the scallop pizza! Otherwise why not visit Australia's southern most hotel for a generous size meal at the Southport Hotel (15 minutes drive).
Woolworths at Huonville could be worth a stop for some essential items, otherwise Dover has a local supermarket for any of those last minute things to help you cook up a storm on the Weber BBQ awaiting you at your Dover Sea View Apartment 1.
If you are travelling from interstate you may even choose to stay a couple of nights at our Kingston Beach View - Tasmania property 184855.
This will allow you to be closer to other tourist attractions such as Bruny Island, MONA museum, Coal River vineyards, Port Arthur etc.
We look forward to hopefully seeing you soon :)
