With good roads, few freeway or motorways and scenic views wherever you go, getting around Tasmania is part of the adventure.
Although Tasmania is a small state by Australian standards, it's the same size as Ireland. Don't underestimate the time it takes to get around.
There are no train services in Tasmania, so travellers rely on a range of transport alternatives to travel between cities and regional centres.
Following the reduction in rental fleets in response to the COVID-19 shutdown last year, it is taking some time for hire car stocks to return to ‘normal’ across Australia, due in part to global supply chain delays for motor vehicles and parts.
In the meantime, try exploring alternatives for vehicle hire through holiday wholesalers or car-sharing apps.
