If you are self driving, plan to spend some time exploring Glenorchy. It is an amazing little town with lots of walking tracks and scenic views & somewhere that you feel like you've truly got away from it all. 

Stopping for a bite to eat or a drink in Glenorchy? We recommend the GYC cafe on Mull Street.
