Tasmania is deceptively big and getting around the island takes time and planning. Your options for getting around include:
Flights within Tasmania are limited. Airlines of Tasmania operate flights between Launceston and Flinders Island. They also do charter flights and they operate in conjunction with Par Avion Wilderness Tours who specialise in flights to the South-West World Heritage National Park. Visit www.airtasmania.com.au for more details.
Tasair operate flights between Devonport-King Island, Burnie-King Island and Burnie-Hobart. They also do scenic flights and tours across the state. Visit www.tasair.com.au for more details.
Major centres in Tasmania have regular bus services. Tassielink and Redline offer the most extensive services. Travel to some remote areas (some of which include popular tourist destinations) can be difficult to organise as they don't run every day and they can leave at inconvenient times. Those wanting to travel around the island by bus should therefore have plenty of flexibilitty. Refer to the bus service websites or contact us for more details.
Driving is perhaps the best and certainly the most efficient way of getting around Tasmania. Cars can be brought across to Tasmania on the Spirit of Tasmania or they can easily be hired upon arrival. Click here for more information.
Cycling is a great way to get around Tasmania. Visit www.biketas.org.au for more information.
