There is a lot to do within a 90 minute radius of Hobart and the centre of Tasmania tourism. Visit Richmond
, south east of Hobart then wander down to the Tasman Peninsula and the Port Arthur historic site. Walk along the cliffs at Port Arthur
, or take a cruise that brings in you to within metres of cliffs that rise more than 300 metres out of the sea at Bruny Island. Bruny Island is truly a place of surprises with only 500 permanent residents among the gentle rolling country side that meets a wild and rugged coastline. Take a drive to the top of Mount Wellington
for an incredible view of the complex system of islands and estuaries in the sea below. Have a look at the many Hobart tours
that we have.
There are many diverse places to stay – Hobart hotels
with views of the coast, quaint accommodation in an old sandstone cottage, or spa resorts in the mountains. Wherever you stay, be sure to enjoy the delights of old Hobart town.
Even though Tasmania looks small to the international traveler, compared to the rest of Australia, it still takes time to get around.
Tasmania’s roads are good, but allow extra time on the west coast for what some would consider hilly and windy country lanes.
A drive from Hobart in the south to Launceston in the north will take three hours. Remember your drivers’ licence and a credit card to pay for the rental - although eftpos is widely accepted. And you must be over 21 years of age. Always check when booking if it includes roadside breakdown assistance.
