Reasons to explore Tasmania by campervan
Flexibility and Freedom: Hiring a campervan in Hobart gives you the freedom to explore Tasmania at your own pace, with the flexibility to change your itinerary as you go. You can stop wherever and whenever you want, and enjoy the stunning scenery that Tasmania has to offer.
Cost-effective: Hiring a campervan in Hobart is a cost-effective way to explore Tasmania, as you can save money on accommodation and transportation costs. With a campervan, you have your own transportation and accommodation in one, so you don't have to spend money on hotels or motels.
Unique Experience: Road-tripping in a campervan is a unique experience that allows you to get up close and personal with the natural beauty of Tasmania. You can park your campervan in secluded spots and wake up to stunning views, away from the crowds and tourist hotspots.
Accessibility: Hiring a campervan in Hobart is an accessible way to explore Tasmania, as you can drive to remote areas and explore off-the-beaten-track destinations that are not easily accessible by public transportation.

How long should your Tasmanian road trip be?
Remember Loony Toones and its Tasmanian Devil? Don’t be like that Tasmanian Devil by exploring Tasmania in an extremely fast pace. Tasmania is the smallest Aussie state in terms of land area: about 68,401 square kilometres aka 26,410 square miles. Roughly the size of Ireland or the US state of West Virginia.
Tasmania might look small but despite its small size, it boasts a diverse range of landscapes and attractions, including rugged coastlines, national parks, forests, and wildlife. It's also known for its gourmet food and wine, arts and culture, and friendly locals.
So don’t rush your Tasmanian road trip. Although, the length of a road trip in Tasmania depends on the number of attractions you want to visit and the things you want to do. To see a lot of Tasmania's major attractions and get a taste of the island's culture and landscapes, we recommend a road trip of at least 7-10 days.
That will give you plenty of opportunity to explore popular destinations like Hobart, the Freycinet Peninsula, Wineglass Bay, Port Arthur, the Tasman Peninsula, Cradle Mountain, and the Bay of Fires. You'll have enough time to go on scenic hikes, enjoy the beaches, and immerse yourself in the local culture by trying the food and visiting museums and galleries.
However, if you want to explore Tasmania in-depth or include lesser-known destinations, you can add 2-3 weeks or even more days/week to that road trip. Tasmania has a lot of hidden gems, such as the Tarkine Wilderness, Maria Island, and the Huon Valley, that are worth exploring if you have the time.
It's important to note that Tasmania's roads can be narrow and winding, so you may need to factor in extra time for driving, especially if you're not used to driving on the left-hand side of the road. Additionally, the weather can be unpredictable, so it's a good idea to have some flexibility in your itinerary in case you need to make adjustments due to rain or other factors.
When is the best time to explore Tasmania?
The best time to explore Tasmania depends on your interests and preferences, as the island has something to offer all year round. However, the most popular time to visit Tasmania is during the summer months from December to February, when the weather is warm and sunny, and many outdoor activities are available.
During the summer months, you can explore Tasmania's stunning national parks and hiking trails, enjoy a swim at one of the island's beautiful beaches, or attend one of the many festivals and events that take place throughout the season.
If you prefer a quieter and more budget-friendly experience, you may want to consider visiting Tasmania during the shoulder seasons of spring (September to November) or autumn (March to May). During these seasons, the weather is milder, and the crowds are thinner, making it easier to explore Tasmania's attractions at a more relaxed pace. Plus, you can enjoy the beautiful autumn foliage or spring wildflowers, depending on the season.
Winter (June to August) in Tasmania can be cold and rainy, but it's also a great time to experience the island's winter activities, such as skiing and snowboarding at Mount Wellington or exploring the cosy cafes and restaurants in Hobart and other towns.
