Australian Air Holidays to pro-
duce the booklet.
Within its pages are a wide
variety of holidays aimed at
the 60-plus traveller.

amount to see and do.
Hobart is a beautiful city,

Sisterhood Womens Travel, the first
and only women's tour company operating
under a Victorian Civil and
Administrative Tribunal exemption from
the Equal Opportunity Act 1995, is proving
a popular way for women of all ages and
backgrounds to discover the world.
It offers fully-escorted all-inclusive
small group tours to destinations around
the world, including the near and familiar
such as Tasmania and Norfolk Island.
WORLD Discovery Tours is offering a 12-
day escorted coach tour next March.
You will travel to Devonport aboard The
Spirit of Tasmania and visit Sheffield, the
town of murals, modelled on the small
Canadian town of Chemainus and created
to save the town's economy.
From there the tour travels to
Deloraine, before heading to Launceston to
visit Cataract Gorge and Grindelwald
Swiss Village. It's then down the scenic
east coast through St Helens and the Port
Arthur Historic Site. Three nights are
spent in Hobart before heading to Strahan,
Queenstown, Cradle Mountain and Burnie.
There is also an 11-day tour with flights
for those who prefer to fly to Tasmania.
WITH Scenic Tours you can enjoy
exclusive Scenic FreeChoice inclu-
sions in Hobart, Cradle Mountain and
Launceston, allowing you to personalise
and tailor-make your holiday.
Scenic's hotels have all been carefully
selected for their central location or dis-
tinctive character, from stunning wilder-
ness lodges to superb hotels in unique set-
tings. Every hotel is the best available in
PRISTINE -- Cradle Mountain is one of Tasmania's

with its huge deep harbour nestling under
the often snow-capped Mt Wellington.
Macquarie Harbour, with the township of
Strahan on its shores, is home to World
Heritage cruises on the Gordon River
which wind through huon pine forests.
Absolute wilderness country is seen via
the West Coast Wilderness railway, origi-
nally built to haul copper from nearby
Queenstown to the coast at Strahan. The
track is so steep that a rack and pinion
system was needed to give the locomotives
traction on steep climbs and descents.
Now a tourist railway, it provides an
exceptional view of wilderness areas.
Tasmania's beginnings as a convict set-
tlement with its free source of labour pro-
vided the basis for the development of
many large estates, grand homes and out-
buildings across the State. Some of these
today are under the care of the National
Trust and are open to view.
Local cheeses, wines, oysters, crayfish,
salmon and berries add to the experience.
