Free Internet Access
The Tasmania Parks & Wildlife Service Office on Macquarie St has free internet, as does Hadleys Hotel foyer, a free WiFi hotspot and excellent public bar for sheltering from the cold in comfort. There are numerous internet cafes in the city center, but many of the coffee shops offer free wireless internet with a purchase anyway, as well as trusty old McDonald's.
Driving in Tasmania
When early-morning or late-afternoon driving in most parts of Tasmania, including areas close to Hobart, you’ll need to be aware of creatures that hop, bound, run, bounce and scuttle across the road without warning. In some parts of the state this makes driving at this time supremely stressful, simply because of the sheer numbers of wonderful creatures you encounter and are naturally loathe to harm. So the best advice is to stop driving at these times, or just be really really careful.
