Getting to Tasmania

Getting here by air

Tasmania has several airports that have regular commercial arrivals and departures: Hobart, Launceston, Devonport and Burnie. The terminals house car rental companies, café and bar facilities as well as the airline service and baggage counters.

Hobart is serviced by regular flights of both Qantas Link, Jetstar and Virgin Blue airlines. Hobart airport is about 15 km from the city centre. To reach the city you can travel by taxi (approx. $30) by Redline shuttle bus (approx $12) or by private transport. The trip takes around 15 minutes.

Launceston Airport is about 20 km from the city centre. It has regular jet services to mainland capitals by both Qantas, Jetstar and Virgin Blue. There is a regular shuttle bus and a taxi to the city costs around $23.

Devonport and Burnie offer smaller airports with regular turboprop services to the mainland. A shuttle bus operates and taxis are available at both airports.

Getting here by sea

There has been a boom in the number of visitors who want to combine their exploration of Tasmania with the romance and adventure of a sea voyage. We have two of these vessels operating between Melbourne and Devonport. These ships operate both a day and night crossing, in peak holiday times.

Devonport is the ideal starting place for your Tasmanian adventure as it allows you to complete a round trip of the state before embarking for your return journey.
