Hobart Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

The capital and most populous city of Tasmania, Hobart is a great place to visit. Not only an exciting destination in its own right, it can also serve as a gateway to the beaches, villages, and nature areas of the southern part of the island. Here are three of the most interesting things to see and do around Hobart:

  • Antarctic attractions. Australia is usually associated with extreme heat rather than cold, but the southern part of the country, including Tasmania, is actually one of the main access points for Antarctica, and there are many attractions in Hobart that are dedicated to Antarctic research. These include the visitor’s center of the Australian Antarctic Division, the Mawson’s Huts Replica Museum dedicated to the expedition of the seventh continent by one of Australia’s most famous explorers, the exhibitions of ‘Islands to Ice’ at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, and the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens which houses many unique subantarctic plants. Tasmania is also one of the best places in the world to view the Aurora Australis, or the southern lights, with many companies in Hobart offering watching tours, especially during the southern hemisphere’s winter which lasts from June to August.
  • Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. Celebrating its 40th birthday in 2021, the Bonorong is dedicated to the protection of Tasmania’s unique and threatened species, as well injured individual animals. Visitors of the sanctuary can learn about the conversation efforts, as well as observe inhabitants like Forester kangaroos, wombats, koalas, and cockatoos. Located north of the city, the center can be reached in about 30 minutes.
  • Forestier and Tasman Peninsulas. Two wild, fascinating areas just southeast of Hobart that can be easily reached by car, the peninsulas are great either for a day-trip or a longer, slower expedition. Sparsely populated and with a truly stunning coastline, they are home to attractions like the Tasmanian Devil Conservation Unzoo, a number of national parks, and former penal sites that have been turned into heritage destinations.

We travelled from Hobart to Launceston and Burnie then back again over three days. The scenery was fabulous even though it changed significantly during the trip. We had a bit of rain over the journey so I was glad to have a medium to large size car.

We will hire a car again as we have done it many times but will not use Bargain Cars as their service was doggy and created stress rather than good customer service. The Car was good but we did not know what would happen when we returned it based on the poor service on pickup. The Hartz Mountain was lovely but cold.

lots of driving to see a lot of Tassie, the car we hired was great. Definitely recommend seeing Cradle Mountain, the views there were spectacular and we only did a part tour of Dove Lake (we arrived too late in afternoon for the courtesy shuttle buses). Even being there for the last hour was worth the trip :)

You can't really get around Tasmania without a car. I understand there is a Supply & Demand quest going on at the moment in that state and we were suprised by the price of car hire but also grateful that we were able to get one. The whole island is so picturesque - I especially enjoyed the East Coast.
