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.

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 a day-trip

  • 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.

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.

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.

Our 2nd trip to Tasmania. We had to see Port Aurthur and the Prison Mine nearby. Thanks to local knowledge we also visited the Tasman Peninsula, blowhole and arches. Our next adventure was on the West Coast from Strahan. The Gordon River cruise from Macquarie Harbour..ā must do! Then a little drive from Strahan to Launscestion via Cradle Mountain..also a must do. In Launscestion a walk and chairlift ride up Catarach Gorge was the order of the day and a beautiful dinner at Alida with a friend. A meander back to Hobart stopping at Evandale, Cambelltown,Ross,Oatland and finally Richmond. We travelled 1242ks on this trip but hey , its worth it..we will be back.

If renting in Tasmania, take note of some places which have dirt roads, such as Bruny Island near Hobart. A car would not be suitable here and would recommend a small SUV which has more ground clearance.

With the car I had I was able to access some impressive places, in particular the local waterfalls, which were awesome. I enjoyed all the places that I visited, which were many. Everywhere I went people were nice and friendly and helpful. Now here are my tips before you travel anywhere. 1. Study the places you intend to visit and find out the best time to visit and the weather conditions. Everything bit of information no matter how small is important, as long as it is up-to-date and accurate. 2. Talk to a local. The best information comes from those who have live in the area for a long time. Locals are not hard to spot. But if you are not sure then talk to the people at the front desk of where your staying or the the visitor centre in town. 3. Be prepared for weather changes, so a warm waterproof jacket is handy. 4 Take a bottle of water to keep hydrated. 5 Travel light don't bring a bag of stuff that you not going need or carry. 6 be aware of the time that it takes to get to your destination and the time that you have there. 7. Enjoy where you are and don't be disappointed if you don't see the main thing that you wanted to see. Getting there is a big reward in it's self. 8 Be safe don't over do it no matter how old you or fit you are. Some places that I visited had some rough walking tracks and lots of mud and water, so I did not push myself too hard and so took my time. And if I couldn't do it then didn't do it, I kept it simple and easy. 9 have fun!

Salamanca market is a must, as well as Mt.Wellington and the royal botanical gardens. Cradle Mt/Lake St.Clair National park is fab. Launceston and Cataract Gorge, Biencho, Wineglass bay, Little Blue Lake, Bay of fires. Port Arthur is very interesting as well.

Customer service skills and attitudes of your staff was not much to think about. Young staff need more training how to handle disgruntled customers...one before me was furious.

Tasmania is a wonderful place and having the freedom to travel at your own pace and to the locations of your choice is recommended. A rental car allows this flexibility.

Wonderful place to travel to, and around. Would highly recommend Hobart to anyone. A hire car is one of the best ways to get around. Road structures can be tricky though - easy to take a wrong turn! :-)

Hobart is lovely, but there are so many areas of Tasmania that are wonderful to visit, including Port Arthur and the top of Mount Wellington and having a car made it all so much easier to get around and see what we wanted to see in the time that we had.
