You’ve heard all about the beauty of Tasmania, right?

Being an Island State, if you’re coming to visit then you’ll need transport to see all that’s on offer; there’s many options you can consider – doing a guided tour by coach, using public transport (which has limitations), Cycling around the Island, renting a car or hiring a Campervan. You can of course bring your own vehicle from Mainland Australia via the Spirit of Tasmania ferry.

I’m unashamedly going to suggest you hire a Campervan for your adventure and, “Explore Tasmania your way!” Why?

With a Campervan you have your bed with you wherever you go; you’re not locked into a schedule to be at your accommodation by any given time, and if you’ve pre-booked your accommodation what if you don’t like the location when you get there?

Campervanning throughout Tasmania allows total freedom; it’s legal to camp wherever you like (providing you obey any signage to the contrary), so if you like the area you’re visiting then stay a while, if not simply move on until you find a spot to call your own.

There’s ample Caravan Parks scattered throughout Tasmania for you to stay – many having great amenities where you can make new friends whilst cooking a BBQ in the communal kitchen and sharing your travel plans.

Campervanning is perhaps the most economical way to see Tasmania when compared with the options listed above, so when it comes time to consider your next holiday adventure give hiring a campervan a go and…
