Planning to Tasmania
Getting to Tasmania
Fly to Hobart/Launceston, Tasmania with Qantas, only approx. 10 hours flight with a stopover either Sydney or Melbourne. These flights are available every day of the week. Check out our Qantas offer below!
Ideal Self-Drive Destination
Tasmania is easy to explore by car - it is compact, the roads uncrowded and scenery varied. The benefit of its size means you can stand atop a mountain and feel sand between your toes on the same afternoon drive. It has a small population and very few freeways. The two-lane roads are mostly well-maintained and the traffic is light!
The average maximum daily summer temperatures are between 17 and 23 degrees Celsius and winter daily temperatures sit between 3 and 11 degrees Celsius.Regardless of where you travel in Tasmania you should be prepared for sudden, temporary deterioration in the weather, especially if bushwalking. Always carry additional warm clothing, including a waterproof outer layer!

Destination Feature: Southern Lights in Tasmania
HIGHLIGHTS: TULIP BLOSSOM & SOUTHERN LIGHTS CHASE! Embark on a super 6 days convoy in Tasmania chasing the Southern Lights with our photographer - Jensen Chua! This itinerary suggests some of the great spots for Southern Lights sightings. Since the Southern Light is based on sunspots and massive bursts of solar winds, you can view it from almost all over Tasmania with the exception of bigger cities (light pollution) OR places with obstruction of large mountain ranges or trees. Do remember to bring your DSLR camera (full frame or APS-C) and tripod along on this trip as you definitely need a long exposure with the camera so that the colours are revealed.
