How to reach Castaway Holiday ApartmentsFrom Hobart: take National Highway 1 to Bridgewater. Veer left onto the A10, and cross the Derwent River at New Norfolk. The A10 is the road all the way to Queenstown. The first half of the journey is fine and it is around Wayatinah that you start entering the more heavily timbered country and winding roads. Hamilton is about an hour from Hobart, and 10 minutes further along there is a good Takeaway Roadhouse on the right at Ouse - and it's the last food and fuel stop until Derwent Bridge. Derwent Bridge (177 km out of Hobart) is about another hour from Hamilton. The following places are available to rest and/or enjoy a meal or coffee. Just five kilometres on the right (at the bridge itself) is Lake St Clair. On leaving Derwent Bridge you enter the World Heritage Area. The King William Saddle is on the left about 10-15 minutes after leaving Derwent Bridge. It is shown as a sign depicting a camera and says scenic lookout. Travelling down Mt. Arrowsmith, at the bottom on the left is Franklin River Nature Trail. This is a great flat 40 minute circular walk, alongside the Franklin River and then the Surprise River. As you come down Victoria Pass on the right is Nelson Falls. From here you cross Bradshaw Bridge which is over Lake Burberry, travel along through the almost ghost towns of Linda & Gormanston, and up and over the Iron Blow. And now comes the tricky part, as the drive down Mt Lyell is very winding and caution is recommended. At the bottom is Queenstown. Turn right at the bridge and travel the three kilometres up the hill (which isn't so winding). At the top turn left onto the B24 and it is now 43km to Strahan. But, be warned that it will take you up to 45 minutes to drive the distance. Half way along is a lookout on the left which shows great views along the ravine to Queenstown. When you come into Strahan the BP service station is on the right, followed by the Strahan Supermarket. At the intersection turn right into Harvey Street and Castaway is 150 metres along, on the right.
