Getting Around

With good roads, few freeway or motorways and scenic views wherever you go, getting around Tasmania is part of the fun.

Although Tasmania is a small state by Australian standards, it's actually the same size as Ireland, so don't underestimate the time it takes to get around. Even driving around the state will take several days, especially if you take the time to look around.

There are no train services in Tasmania so travellers rely on bus and coach and of course car-hire to get to and from our cities and regional centres.

Coach tours offer a comfortable and relaxing way of seeing the state with many national coach touring companies offering traditional coach touring around Tasmania. They provide extensive year round multi-day itineraries for budget, deluxe and luxury travellers.

Specialised small escorted group touring is also available to cater for particular interests and the youth touring market
