The capital city of Hobart, along with the Hobart Airport, are two of the most popular rental car outlets. Hobart is Tasmania’s business and residential hub and serves as a fantastic launching pad for exploring the rest of the state.
Right next door is Wrest Point, a tourist favourite due to its abundant shows, bars, casinos, and delicious restaurant fare. If you prefer a relaxing time on the beach, Wrest Point can accommodate your sun and fun pleasures as well. Or drive your discount rental car to the Cataract Gorge Reserve just outside of Launceston and take in the beauty of nature and the thrills of the rushing rapids.
For the nature enthusiast there is Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park. Here you can view Mt. Ossa, Tasmania's highest mountain, and hike the Overland Track, a 40-km stretch that features stunning mountain ranges, beautiful waterfalls, and Tasmania's deepest lake, Lake St. Clair. Or tour Hastings Caves in the Huon Valley and take a dip in a thermal pool.
Saturdays feature the Salamanca Market in Hobart where you can buy fresh, local produce. Snack on the region's many cheeses and feast on Hobart's prime seafood. Tasmania is also host to several wine festivals throughout the year wherein you can sample local spirits for free.
For those travellers who want to take in more of the cultural history of Tasmania, drive your rental to the Tiagarra Aboriginal Culture Centre located in Devonport on the North Coast. Here you can study the 10,000 year-old stone carvings that extend to some of Tasmania's earliest recorded history. Another must-see is the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery in Launceston, featuring exhibitions that unpack Tasmania's heritage and Australian colonial art, among others.
No matter what you choose to do, a cheap car rental through CarRental.com.au will help you get there. Below is a suggested itinerary for your next trip to Tasmania, or you can feel free to enter your trip details in the booking form above.
