10 Best Things To Do In Tasmania in a Campervan

Tasmania is a traveller’s paradise. It’s remote, with beautiful landscapes and animals, and plenty to do. You can get the most out of your trip to Tasmania by planning out your activities and destination spots ahead of time. Luckily, we’ve done all the work for you. Check out our list of the 10 best things to do in Tasmania.

Take Tasmania By the Road

Tourists can circle Tasmania in approximately six days of driving. This island is built for an adventurous road trip. We recommend you find a campervan hire Tasmania or a motorhome hire Tasmania. A campervan holiday is cheaper as your vehicle provides both transportation and nightly accommodations.

Drive through all of Tasmania, going full circle around the island. You can span this out over a week, 10 days, or even two weeks, as you make as many stops as you want.

See the Aurora Australis

The Aurora Australis, also known as the Southern Lights, is a breathtaking experience that not everyone gets to experience in their lifetime. The Southern Lights can be seen from some points of Tasmania. The city of Hobart is an excellent spot to see the Aurora Australis lights. We recommend you reserve your trip with a campervan hire Hobart. Lay on your vehicle during the nights and experience the lights before driving on to your next destination.

You can typically see the Aurora Australis all year long in parts of Tasmania.

A Snowy Experience

Many people choose to go to Tasmania during the hot months, but Tasmania can be a winter wonderland too! If you go when the season is cold, we recommend visiting one of Tasmania’s many mountains for a snowy experience. We recommend Mount Kunanyi, which is only a 30-minute from Hobart to its summit.

Tasmania & Penguins

Tasmania is quite close to Antarctica, making it a popular destination for penguins. In fact, Tasmania is home to the world’s smallest penguin species named the eudyptula minor. Tourists shouldn’t leave Tasmania without hopping on a penguin viewing tour. Some popular areas to spot penguins are the city of Penguin or at the Little Penguin Observation Centre on Parsonage from September to March. Additionally, Bicheno has nightly penguin tours available all year round.

Visit a National Park

Tasmania has 19 national parks that make for a fantastic day as you walk through them and explore. We highly recommend Freycinet National Park. Or, make it a goal to visit all 19 by purchasing the national park pass.

Visit The Bay of Fires

The Bay of Fires is a bay made up of white beaches, sparkling blue water, and orange-hued granite. Tourists can take part in many activities at The Bay of Fires, including camping, fishing, swimming, and bird watching.

Russell Falls

Would it be a trip to a hot country without a stopover at a waterfall? The Russell Falls is a top priority on most Tasmanian travellers lists. This spectacular waterfall is located in the Central Highlands region of Tasmania.

Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary

Do you love animals but detest the caged aspect of zoos? Visit the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary to see beautiful creatures and go on educational tours. Some of the animals you may see include kangaroos, Tasmanian devils, koalas, wombats, and more! And, you’ll be contributing to a great cause!

Honeymoon Bay

You can’t be on an Australian road trip and not spend some time at the beach! We love Honeymoon Bay for its white beaches and crystal blue water. Located on the Freycinet Peninsula of Tasmania, it’s a popular destination for a relaxing day of picnicking and snorkelling.

Hastings Cave State Reserve

Located 102 kilometres south of Hobart, the Hastings Cave State Reserve is made up of complex caves and a natural warm springs. The natural warm springs allow the nearby streams to maintain a nice 28 °C all year round. Explore the caves and then go for a swim!
