Places to stay in Tasmania are as diverse as the landscape.

From lakeside lodges, beachside camping and eco pods in the forest to five-star resorts, or homely shacks where families can settle in for a while, there’s something to suit everyone. Map out the itinerary and start planning – accommodation fills fast in peak periods, so it’s best to book in advance.



Hotels and motels

An award-winning colonial mansion, coastal retreat or city waterfront hotel – from major chains to intimate family-run properties, there’s a hotel or motel to suit all budgets.


Holiday houses and cabins

In Tasmania, holiday homes are called “shacks” and range from rustic cabins to spacious architectural gems. Booking a house is a great way to enjoy the comforts of home in beautiful locations.

Resorts and lodges

Holiday resorts and wilderness lodges are often found away from the hustle and bustle – on the edge of national parks or perched high on an ocean cliff top. Many cater for a complete holiday experience, offering personalised walking tours, wellbeing treatments and locally sourced food and wine as part of the package.


Bed and breakfast

Enjoy country hospitality in a Tasmanian B&B. Whether it’s an historic colonial house in the country, a city dwelling or a place in the wilderness, Tasmanians take pride in offering a genuine experience.



With the option of being able to cook, do laundry and have more space than a hotel room, a self-contained apartment or villa can provide comfort and convenience when holidaying.

Backpackers and hostels

Staying at a backpackers or hostel is a fun way to get tips and stories from fellow travellers. There are backpackers and hostels in the major cities, towns and some of the state’s most spectacular places.


Farm stays

Experience farm life with down-to-earth locals living off the land. Many farms offer experiences so travellers can get behind the scenes of a working farm, meet the animals and see where the produce grows.


Caravan and camping

Exploring Tasmania in a campervan or caravan is easy with more than 50 caravan parks around the state. Campsites can be found in most parks and reserves, allowing travellers to head off the beaten track and enjoy a true wilderness experience.
