Why rent a car in Hobart?

Hobart, the capital of Tasmania, is an amazing place to visit. Although it might not be as popular as other Australian tourist destinations like Sydney, Adelaide, or Gold Coast, it has plenty to enjoy, from historic settlements and interesting architecture to world-class museums and great seafood restaurants. With a rental car, you can easily explore the rest of Tasmania and its wild beaches, old mining towns, and national parks. Find some ideas in this Tasmania road trip itinerary.

The most popular one-way rental options for pick up in Hobart and drop off in another city include:

  • From Hobart to Launceston - 43 offers from $33.07 per day

Top ways to enter Hobart

  • Hobart Airport: The largest on Tasmania, Hobart Airport serves about 2.5 million travelers every year. As of November 2019, there are no scheduled international flights, but the airport provides connections to the other largest cities in Australia like Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, and Brisbane. There are also seasonal flights to and from Wilkes Land, a territory in Antarctica claimed by Australia. Hobart Airport is located some 20 km (12 miles) east of Hobart city center and can be reached in about 20 minutes. 
  • Devonport Airport: The other airport of Tasmania, it hosts flights to a number of smaller destination on and near the island, as well as to and from Melbourne and Tasmania. With one terminal and just one gate, it is one of the smallest international airports in Australia. Located on the north coast of Tasmania, Devonport Airport is some 280 km (174 miles) from Hobart and can be reached in about three hours.
  • Melbourne Airport: Also known as Tullamarine Airport and serving nearly 40 million travelers every year, it is the second-busiest airport in Australia. In addition to providing domestic connections, it hosts flights to and from destinations in Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas. While it is possible to go from Melbourne to Hobart by car - the trip, including a ferry ride, would take some 15 hours - it is much quicker to catch another flight to Tasmania.

City facts

  • Hobart has an oceanic climate with warm summers and cool winters. The average high temperature is 22.2 °C  (72 °F) in January, the warmest month, and 12°C  (54 °F) in July, the coldest. Hobart (and the rest of Tasmania) is generally much cooler than most other places in Australia. Precipitation is relatively low throughout the year with a small increase from August to October.
  • Despite its relatively small size, Hobart has an absolute abundance of great museums. Some of the most impressive ones are the Maritime Museum of Tasmania which is dedicated to the region’s traditions of seafaring, whaling, and trading; the Australian Antarctic Division’s visitor center which has many exhibitions on Australia’s polar expeditions and the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery with a collection of indigenous and contemporary Australian art, as well as a large Antarctic section.
  • Thousands of visitors travel to places like Canada, Norway, and Iceland every year to see the majestic Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis. But a similar phenomenon, Southern Lights, or Aurora Australis can be observed in the Southern hemisphere, and Tasmania is one of the best places on the planet for experiencing them. In Hobart, there are a number of dedicated tours that you can join. Find out more about seeing Southern Lights in Australia here

Top destinations and activities

  • Cascades Female Factory. One of the 11 former Australian penal sites that are included in the UNESCO World Heritage List, the Cascades is a museum that shows the living conditions of female convicts in the 19th century. A fascinating place that provides an important historical lesson, it is not to be missed if you’re in Hobart.
  • Salamanca Place. Made up of many low-rise 19th-century buildings of classic British architectural styles, Salamanca Place is one of the unique neighborhoods in all of Australia. The area is home to many museums, performance venues, and restaurants, as well as the beautiful Salamanca Art Center. Salamanca Market, one of the best-known street fairs in the country, takes place every Saturday.
  • Parliament House. Originally built in the 19th century as the Customs House, the sandstone building has been the home of the Tasmanian parliament for more than 160 years. Despite legislators working inside the building, the Parliament House is also open for tourists and features attractions like the Parliament Library and the Parliament Museum.
  • Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. Dedicated to the indigenous inhabitants, nature, and history of Tasmania, as well as works by the region’s most prominent artists, this is one of the most notable museums on the island. With Tasmania being one of the gateways to Antarctica, there are also a number of exhibits dedicated to that fascinating continent. Other notable museums in Hobart include the Museum of Old and New Art, Maritime Museum of Tasmania, Mawson’s Huts Replica Museum, and the visitor center of the Australian Antarctic Division (the latter two are also connected to Antarctic research).
  • Sullivan’s Cove. The place has a historical heritage — it was the first point of arrival for the British in the early 19th century — but nowadays Sullivan’s Cove is best known as the nicest waterfront spot in Hobart. Located right in the heart of the city, this scenic area is just a stone’s throw from the aforementioned Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery and Salamanca Market.

Traffic and parking

  • One of the largest road hazards in Australia is the wildlife. Take extra caution when driving in bad weather or after dark as this is when most of the collisions with wildlife take place.
  • Mobile coverage is very rarely available outside of major highways and population centers, so take extra caution when traveling in rural areas.
  • Another great risk when traveling off of the main highways is the heat. The temperatures can reach extremes very easily, especially during the summer months and in inland areas. Always stay properly hydrated and plan your route in advance to be able to supplement your water supplies.
  • Laws concerning driving under the influence differ from territory to territory in Australia. In Tasmania, the legal alcohol limit is 0.05% for experienced drivers and 0.00% for novice drivers and drivers with provisional licenses. Exceeding the limit can lead to large fines and a driver’s license ban.
  • Proof of insurance and the car’s documentation need to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
  • When driving, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
  • The primary, nationwide emergency number in Australia is 000.

Toll roads

There are a number of toll roads in Australia, mainly in the states of New South Wales, Victoria, and Queensland. There are no toll roads on Tasmania.

Most toll roads in Australia use an open toll system with mainline barrier toll points. All toll roads in Australia use a cashless payment system. You can purchase a prepaid pass for most toll roads. Some rental cars in Australia are equipped with electronic transponders, the price of which may or may not be included in the rental price. Ask your car rental provider about it in advance. 

Different toll roads are operated by different companies, so there is no nation-wide system in place.

Ideas for day trips

  • Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. Located just north of the city, Bonorong is dedicated to taking care of protected local species as well as injured and abandoned animals. If you go on a tour through the sanctuary, you might get to see its most honorable inhabitant, a cockatoo bird that’s more than 100 years old. Located 29 km (17 miles) from Hobart center, Bonorong can be reached in just 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Mount Wellington. Overlooking Hobart and the rest of southern Tasmania, the majestic Mount Wellington (or Kunanyi, as it’s known among the native inhabitants of the island) is a must-visit place if you’re in the area. It’s possible to take a cable car to the top, but you can also drive all the way up to reach the Pinnacle Observation Shelter. Do keep in mind that it gets quite cold up there and the summit even experiences some snowfall every winter. Located 20 km (13 miles) west of Hobart, Mount Wellington can be reached in about 30 minutes.
  • Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens. A fascinating place to visit for any nature lover, the botanical gardens house more than 6,500 species plant species of amazing variety. Many are native to the island (do visit the Tasmanian Fernery), some come from the rain forests of Northern Queensland at the other end of the country, and others are subantarctic species found on the uninhabited islands between Tasmania and Antarctica. Located 3 km (1.8 miles) from the city center, the gardens can be reached in just five to seven minutes, but it’s easy to spend at least half a day exploring them.
  • Australian Convict Sites. Dedicated to Australia’s early history as a penal colony, the Convict Sites are a UNESCO World Heritage site made up of 11 such sites spread across the country, five of which are in Tasmania. The Cascades Female Factory, which is located in Hobart, was already mentioned above, but the other four are also fascinating, if somewhat gruesome, places to visit. The two nearest to Hobart, the Coal Mines and Port Arthur Historic Sites, are on the Tasman peninsula and only about a 90-minute drive southeast of Hobart.
  • Mount Field National Park. Along with the Freycinet, Mount Field is one of the two oldest national parks in Tasmania. The lower levels of the park are temperate rainforests, while the higher peaks actually get some snow cover every Tasmanian winter. The area is home to a variety of flora and fauna, as well as some absolutely fascinating mushroom life. The drive from Hobart takes around 90 minutes.
  • Tasman National Park. Located around an hour's drive east of Hobart, Tasman National Park is home to dramatic cliffs and interesting rock formations. Great for any hiking enthusiasts, you should put such highlights as Cape Raul and Cape Huay on your list. The park is also home to some endemic plant species found only in this area. 

Most popular cars

The most popular rental car in Tasmania is Toyota Camry, although many travelers also go for the Mitsubishi ASX and the Toyota Yaris. The most popular rental car types are economy, intermediate, and full-size.

Further destinations

  • Freycinet National Park. Taking up most of the Freycinet Peninsula on the eastern coast of Tasmania, the national park is a remote and beautiful area. The park has many hiking trails, so you might be lucky to spot local wildlife like the brushtail possum, echidna, or even Tasmanian devil; the surrounding waters are inhabited by southern right whales and bottlenose dolphins. Located 165 km (102 miles) north of Hobart, the national park can be reached in about 2 hours and 10 minutes.
  • Bruny Island. In fact, Bruny is not one, but two islands, connected by a narrow sandy isthmus known locally as The Neck. It’s possible to cross it by car, but watch out for penguins as they are frequently crossing the road here. Some of the attractions of Bruny include the Blight Museum, the Bruny History Room, the Cape Bruny Lighthouse, and some seriously amazing seafood restaurants. To access the island, you need to take a ferry from the town of Kettering, which is located about 33 km (20.5 miles) south of Hobart and can be reached in 35 minutes. Note: Keep in mind that not all car rental providers permit taking a rental car on a boat, so if you plan to travel to Bruny, ask your provider in advance.
  • Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. Not just mad up of one mountain and one lake (although both are spectacular), there’s even more impressive nature to explore in this park. Part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, it is home to the primal landscape of the Twisted Lakes, a lot of wildlife, and some of the most impressive mushroom species on the planet. You need to pay a vehicle fee to enter the park at the Cradle Mountain Visitor Center, but it is most definitely worth it. Located some 325 km (202 miles) northwest of Hobart, the national park can be reached in four hours.
  • Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park. Tasmania is home to a lot of fascinating wildlife, but two animals are especially emblematic of the island. Though the last known Thylacine, or Tasmanian wolf, died in 1936, the Tasmanian devil survives to this day. The largest carnivorous marsupial in the world, during the last decades it has been sadly affected by the widespread devil facial tumor disease (DFTD) and is now seriously threatened as a species. Dedicated to their protection, the Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park is the perfect place to meet these fantastic little beasts, meet other local wildlife, and learn more about Tasmania’s nature. Located about 85 km (53 mi) southeast of Hobart, the conservation park can be reached in just about an hour.
  • West coast. Sparsely populated and relatively unexplored, the western coast of Tasmania is a wonderful off-the-beaten-path destination. Traveling there takes some planning, but the region lures visitors with its wild beaches, several national parks, ancient rainforest, and more recent mining heritage. Depending on where exactly you want to end up, the drive from Hobart to the west coast takes anywhere between three and five hours.

Travelled around Tasmania by rental car. Was a fabulous trip, saw heaps. Great way to travel. Caution with pulling a trailer as roads are narrow and many have no shoulder to drive on (that's the main roads too). Also heaps of small animals at night (road kill was atrocious) and definitely recommend only driving in daylight hours as the ones we saw dead on the side of the road all seem to be nocturnal. Thankfully we did not add to the roadkill toll but came close twice, driving from town back to accommodation just after dusk!

Cradle mountain, Gorge chairlift and Port Arthur were best memorable apart from beautiful landscape while driving around Tasmania. Hobart and Launceston were the cities visited. Avoid Bay of Fires unless you know where you are going as no gps or mobile coverage and roads for 60 odd kms are non-concrete and pathetic, plus the place appears ordinary and overrated.

Short, two day hire, to visit Bruny Island (BI) and local sites in Hobart. BI was a wonderful DIY drive, starting with a booked tour at the Cape Bruny Lighthouse, South Bruny National Park walks, lunch & tasting at the BI Winery, Mavista Nature Walk near Adventure Bay, back up to the Neck & Truganini Lookout and finishing off at the BI Cheese Co then BI House of Whisky. Would totally recommend all venues, but especially ending at the Whisky Bar for a quick relax in front of the fire before boarding the ferry. Quite an adventure travelling in a car on a ferry! After a local scenic drive the following day, we had lunch at Barilla Bay Oyster Farm which was delicious and would also highly recommend. Fabulous to have a car when the weather was so windy and limited other activities.

On day one I drove to Port Arthur which was an amazing experience. I did a guided tour and very happy that I did. On the way back I stopped in to the lavender farm which was beautiful. In Day 2 I first visited Cascades Female Factory in South Hobart. That was a very powerful experience. I highly recommend people pay the extra for the guided tour and the one woman show. It really helped get the full experience. Then I drive to Huonville and had a late lunch at Willie Smith’s Apple shed. The Pate was the best I’ve ever tried. I also did a cider tasting while there and bought some amazing apple spirit to take back home.

We travelled all around Tasmania and loved every minute of it. I would recommend that you do your research before going and don't try to do it too quickly. We spent 18 nights and feel that it was just enough. Hiring our car through Bargain Car Rentals was the best choice as we got a great little car for a lot less than the competitor hire companies. Also, there are a lot of stairs at most of the tourist spots, so be prepared to have very sore knees if you are older. Also, if you have a Vodaphone mobile phone, you will have little to no reception anywhere other than Hobart. We had no mobile data at all other than Hobart and phone reception in a couple of places. Make sure you get Telstra or Optus sim card or dongle to give you coverage. We have Vodaphone and didn't know until we left Hobart that we would have no reception.
