14 Dec 2015 - Tasmania Day 1: Touch down at Tasmania and our trip itinerary

We touched down at Melbourne airport around 7:30am.  Took a while to clear the immigration.  After we collected our luggage, we went to a cafe for some snacks and coffee.  We then purchased a prepaid mobile broadband card from the Optus outlet before walking to the domestic terminal.

As we were still early for our flight at 11:55am, we took a rest at the transit area.  Jerlene and Javier immediately took out their tablets and played their favourite game, Minecraft.  As there were charging points all around the table, we had all our devices charged up.
This was Jerlene and Javier's first time taking a budget flight.  As such, it was also their first time walking from the terminal building, through the apron and climbing up the stairs to an aircraft.
As expected, the first thing they asked when on board the plane was "Where is the screen?".  Haha......I had to convinced them that it was just a short 1 hour flight, so just take a rest and we will be in Tasmania in no time.
In fact, the flight took slightly less than an hour.  After we touched down, I went to collect my rented car key which was just next to the baggage conveyor belt.
