At the Wrest Point Casino, I joined the Player’s Club. This is free, and don’t worry if you don’t gamble – this is for free movies in the afternoon at the hotel, and courses in pilates, line dancing. etc. This would also include bus trips around Tasmania and to the other Casino in Launceston.
I didn’t find out about the monthly bus trips to the end of February, when I heard from the Cromes that the bus trip was to the Tahune Forest Airwalk. I would have really liked to go, but the bus left that morning and I didn’t find out till lunch.

So I decided to go on the bus trip in March, no matter where it was going. It turned out to be a trip to Ashgrove Farm Cheese in Elizabeth Town, with lunch at the Christmas Hills Raspberry Farm Café.
This bus trip costs about $60.00. The bus left at 8 o’clock in the morning. I didn’t want to walk to the Casino so asked them to pick me up at the bus stop right besides my house. This was not a problem for the driver, and the bus was full.
At about 10 o’clock, we stopped for coffee at the Wool Centre. The tour guide had coffee and cookies on the bus, and they were served outside.
My next blog continues the trip.
