No road trip through Tasmania is complete without a smile at some of the island’s unusual names. Eggs and Bacon Bay (near Hobart) and Milkshake Hills (Tarkine) surely must have been named by hungry settlers, and the names Bust-Me-Gall Hill and Break-Me-Neck Hill (both on the Tasman Highway near Buckland) need no explanation. Paradise and The Promised Land (both south of Devonport) were founded with spiritual intent, and the small town of Snug (south of Hobart) is said to have been a cosy place to set anchor.
