Travelling to new places can be difficult if you don't have the right transport in place to help get you from A to B.
And if you are planning a trip to Tasmania, it is highly likely that transport will factor heavily in your holiday plans. How to get about, what to see.
Along with advice on bus fares and car hire there is also the option of taking your own vehicle with you via ferry or taking advantage of the many organised tours on offer in Tasmania.
Depending on the type of vacation you want to experience – whether it be a backpacking adventure or luxurious weekend away – it is easy to find something to suit your needs.
In some cases, you can also find package deals which can help make it easier to find accommodation in remote locations at an affordable price.
Another advantage of going on a tour is that they are often tailored to your interests including food, adventure and wilderness areas, art, history and antiques or allowing time for shopping.
This means that you can enjoy doing the things you love without having to worry about planning every detail and have fun meeting like-minded people.
For those who have a passion for good food and wine, and a different part of Tasmania, it is hard to go past King Island Coach Tours.
On this tour you will visit the Cape Wickham lighthouse, the tallest lighthouse in the southern hemisphere, as well as the famous King Island dairy and there is also the opportunity to go penguin watching for an evening.
Another gastronomic delight is a 6 Days Taste of Tasmania tour that encourages you to explore the flavours of the east and west coast.
Those with a sense of adventure will no doubt want to make their way to Cradle Mountain National Park to go on one of the walking or canyoning tours.
Day tours too in Tasmania’s main centres allow you to quickly take in all the sights without having to plan, plan, plan. That’s what they do … you just sit back, let the driver do the work and take in the ever-changing surroundings.
