Tasmania is a beautiful hotspot of thick forests, beautiful parks, historical towns and glorious coasts – and hiring a campervan on your Tassie holiday means you’ll be able to discover this breathtaking state at your own pace!
MyDriveHoliday has three depots in Tasmania where you can rent your campervan.
We offer motorhome hire in Launceston, Devonport and Hobart and we give you the flexibility to pick up and drop off at the same location or a different location, depending on where you a flying in/out from.
Self-driving is relatively easy in Tasmania and traffic is usually light; however, you should avoid driving after sunset
Tasmania is small and while you can drive from north to south or east to west of the state in around 6 hours, there is plenty of rugged land to explore
Preparing well for any drive in Tasmania is essential; make sure you understand the driving distances and times ahead of you and if you are heading into a remote area, familiarise yourself with facilities available (which can be sparse)
Gorgeous National Parks and remote locations are one of the biggest perks about travelling around Tasmania, but make sure you have a full tank of petrol before you begin your drive, particularly if you are heading into a wilderness area where petrol won’t be available
If you’re driving around Tassie in the winter, be warned that some roads may become slippery with snow and ice; you will need to drive carefully here and pay attention to any road closures or changed road rules
It is perfectly possible to embark on a 4WD adventure in Tasmania and there are many off-road tracks and unsealed roads that you can explore, whether you choose to stick to the coast or head into the forests and parks.
If you do plan to drive off the standard bitumen roads, a 4WD campervan will be necessary, since taking other campervans into remote areas may render your insurance void.
Choosing the right campervan will be vital in making the most of your Tasmania trip; while larger berth caravans are good for longer holidays, you may find smaller campervans are easier to park or take onto more challenging roads (though not off-road)
Tasmania can get chilly, especially in the colder seasons, so hiring a campervan with built-in heating can be a good idea; similarly, air conditioning may be beneficial if you’re visiting in the summer
Powered, unpowered and formal/informal campervan sites are generally easy to come by in Tasmania; conducting simple research before you leave will allow you to determine which camp spot is going to be best for you; if you choose to stay at an informal camp site, make sure you understand the regulations
