2017 was a tough year for me with both my parents passing away. So two of my friends decided that what I needed was a girl’s weekend away.
I chose Hobart since I’d been wanting to visit MONA for a while plus it was an opportunity to stay at Ramada Resort Seven Mile Beach. We decided on a 3 bedroom apartment so we each had our own room. It was perfect for catching up and the resort was in peaceful surroundings.
We flew in on Friday morning, picked up a hire car from the airport and drove to Richmond an historic town about one hour drive from Hobart. We visited the old church and wandered around the antique shops. We had afternoon tea served in silver teapot.
Saturday morning was spent at the famous Salamanca Markets. We brought souvenirs. We had lunch at Maldini Italian restaurant. Then wandered back to the wharf where we went on a horse and carriage ride around the streets of Hobart. We visited Battery Point which is the old part of Hobart where you can find some of the original houses from the 1800s still standing.
On Sunday we took the ferry to MONA. You can spend most of the day there as there is much too see. The views from the museum are fantastic. We had lunch in the cafe but its worth going to the restaurant if you can just for the views.
Monday morning there was time to sleep in and more time to chat before checking out. In 3 days we had seen a lot but there were more places we could have visited such as Mount Wellington.
After an afternoon spent wandering the quaint old village of Richmond with its convict past and now home to delightful shops, and fortified with a delicious hot chocolate, we arrived at the resort for a three-night stay. Our plan was to explore some of the sights of southern Tasmania. We received a warm welcome and settled in to our comfortable, cosy room. The setting amid the native bushland is lovely and we saw birds and wallabies around. Congratulations to the company for preserving this precious area.
I have been a Wyndham Owner for 15 years and it has given me a unique privilege to share my holidays with family and friends.
So here we are in Tassie! I invited my friends from Germany and Panama, Mauricio, Lilia and their baby Elias and Helena to the ‘Apple Isle’. We stayed at the luxurious Wyndham Seven Mile Beach. On entering the 3 bedroom apartment, my friends were so overwhelmed with the palatial size and beautiful interior. Exploring beautiful Hobart and beyond filled every day with wonder and excitement!
I recently stayed at Wyndham Seven Mile Beach in Hobart. The rooms were very nice, the food was great and so was the customer service in the restaurant and resort. It’s close to the airport and just a short walk across the road and you have a beautiful beach!
This story is a little different to others I have read in Destinations magazine. They generally started with a flight or a weekend road trip. This one starts with a plan to spend 7 weeks camping the East Coast of Australia with 2 kids, travelling from Townsville (Far North QLD) to Melbourne (VIC) then taking in Tassie for good measure.
We decided to break the trip up along the way by staying at a few of our Wyndham resorts to recharge & take a break from the everyday fun of setting up & packing up camp. In hindsight, that was a fabulous decision!

WOW! We have just returned from our first Club Tour with Travel Club by Wyndham – Tastes of Tasmania – and can happily declare it to have been a most enjoyable adventure experience. WorldMark Owners from various states of Australia and from New Zealand with friends gathered in Launceston where we met up with our tour escort, Ruan Myers, and our very experienced coach driver David, to commence seven full days together experiencing the beautiful scenery and delightful tastes of Tasmania.

In December, I travelled to Wyndham Seven Mile Beach in Hobart (TAS) with a friend. The resort was very impressive with the ocean over the road.
My reason for going to Tasmania was to visit the lavender farm at Nabowla (the Bridestowe Lavender Estate), east of Launceston. After our arrival, we reassessed our itinerary, realising that Nabowla was a 7 hour round trip, and only one driver (might rethink that idea).
I’m Larna, and along with my husband Andy, we are both Wyndham employees as well as new WorldMark Owners. I’ve been an employee at Wyndham for 7 years, but my first taste of visiting a Wyndham Resort as an Owner was at the beautiful Wyndham Seven Mile Beach, Tasmania.
The staff at the resort were bubbly and helpful, and our lovely room (1-Bedroom Deluxe) had all the comforts we expected and more. To make use of the space available to us, we made sure we purchased lots of Tasmanian produce (ok, mainly cheese, chocolate and wine!) to make use of our kitchen and sunny courtyard.
