By Private Vehicle
Many visitors to Tasmania use their own vehicle to reach the many parks, reserves and walking tracks throughout the State. The Spirit of Tasmania ferries offer visitors substantial rebates on the cost of bring a private vehicle from Melbourne to Devonport on Tasmania's north coast.
For further details on fares or to make a booking go to the website www.spiritoftasmania.com.au.
A popular alternative to using your own vehicle is to hire a car or campervan. Many national parks and reserves offer facilities for campervans and caravans. There are many companies offering car and campervan hire. See the Tourism Tasmania web site at www.discovertasmania.com for details.
Taxis can also be used, although may be expensive for longer trips. The Dover Taxi Co. does trips from Dover or Huonville to Cockle Creek and Hastings return.
There are a number of companies which run transport services throughout the State, others which operate only in certain regions. Their services allow walkers to reach the start of many of our popular walking tracks. Some operators offer regular services, while others offer charters.
