Travelling in Tasmania
Once you have arrived on this beautiful island your options for internal travel are limited to a comprehensive bus service or, of course, car hire. There are no rail services in Tasmania.
Car hire pick-ups are available in Devonport if arriving on the Spirit of Tasmania, at Hobart or Launceston airport and in the Hobart and Launceston CBD’s. If you want to book a hire car in the summer season, especially from 26th December through to mid-January we highly recommend booking as far in advance as you can!
Metro Tasmania operate the urban bus services if you want to move around in the major towns.
The travel time between Hobart and Launceston is 2.5 hours along the Midland Highway.
Airport Shuttle Bus
The Redline bus company also offers a shuttle bus service to meet with all airline arrives and departures in Launceston and Hobart. Both airports are a short 15-20min drive away from their respective CBD’s.
