How To Have The Ultimate Caravanning Adventure In Tasmania

October 24, 2020 Visit Oceania No Comments Email Email

Every year, hundreds of thousands of visitors flock to Tasmania to see the sights and explore. In fact, Tourism Tasmania put the number at over 1.3 million in 2019, and with almost a sixth of tourists choosing a camping or caravanning holiday, it’s clear that a self-drive vacation is a popular option. If you decide to join the ranks of happy campers who have already created wonderful lasting memories of what promises to be a fascinating trip, here are some of the experiences you can look forward to yourself.

The advantages of campervans and caravans

It may or may not be obvious, but having your accommodation right where you are, all the time, means more time for exploring all the amazing activities, experiences, and natural beauty of Tasmania, say online rental experts at Camper Champ. Driving offers the opportunity to enjoy sights you might not see if you’d opted for a static base to explore from – and you’ll often happen upon hidden gems that pop up during the journey. It’s a fantastic option for travelling with kids, too, offering an ever-changing landscape of scenery, environments and built and natural features that’ll provide interest and intrigue. Plus, if you need to stop, take a toilet break, go for a wander to stretch your legs, or have a nap, you can!

Sights you can expect to see

Tasmania, Australia

The route you take will be influenced by the number of days you plan to travel. Setting aside at least two weeks is recommended to fully appreciate most of the amazing things Tasmania has to offer, but even if you can’t visit for that long you can still fit in a lot, and there are some places you won’t want to miss. Sheffield is a town of murals, and Railton has a ton of topiary that’ll give you some great photo opportunities, if nothing else. While you’re in the area, check out the House of Anvers, complete with an enticing chocolate museum that offers demonstrations and tastings – a perfect place to pick up some treats to eat along the rest of your journey.

For those who like a bit of adventure, Tazmania & The Village of Lower Crackpot fits the bill, with a majestic dam to explore and the crazy complex of Tazmania, full of mazes and models, a lavender farm, and a fantastic view of Mount Roland. Cradle Mountain, with its ancient rainforests and alpine lined slopes, is also close by and ready to climb. Check out the King Billy pines and the variety of wildlife on your way, including quolls, platypus, echidna and Tasmanian devils, to name a few.

Hobart is the state capital, and is visited by over 1.9 million tourists every year. This comes as no surprise, given that Hobart offers a whole host of options to experience, whatever your preferences – the Cascade Brewery, Salamanca Market, Mount Wellington and the Royal Tasmanian Gardens provide more than enough to fill a day or two of your time, but there are plenty of other places to explore too. Don’t forget the Museum of Old and New – MOMA – which is filled with curious art, food and drink that’ll appeal to most people who check it out.

For a less urban feel, take a trip to Freyincet National Park, and experience the mighty peaks of the granite mountains as they descend towards tree-lined, white sandy beaches and brilliantly blue bays, including Wineglass Bay, often touted as one of the world’s best beaches – and if it’s history you’re interested in, then the Port Arthur Ghost tour will be right up your street. Wind your way around this World Heritage Historical site, and hear tales of hauntings and paranormal activities that’ll have you feeling very glad to be safe and secure when you tuck yourself under the doona in your caravan or campervan that night.

The route to Tasmania and the roads while you’re there

The roads in Tasmania can be windy, hilly, and a little bit rough – but that all adds to the experience. Although you may find you have to take it easy at times, driving more slowly can help your holiday feel more relaxing, and you’ll also gain a better appreciation of all the things you see around you. Travelling to Tasmania is easy, and you’ll find it simple to board your camper or caravan, and set sail from Melbourne, enjoying all the onboard services for the nine and-a-half-hour trip as you cruise to your destination before you arrive and disembark. At almost 600 miles long and wide, Tasmania is far smaller than Australia, but still plenty big enough to get lost in. The good news is that there are an abundance of fuel stations (although, be aware that some will be shut late at night, or on Sundays) so ensuring that you can continue driving between towns is easy if you plan ahead and stop for fuel regularly.

Whether you’re thinking ahead, or winging it and seeing where you end up, you’ll find something to interest you as you travel around Tasmania. With the freedom that comes along with having your own campervan or caravan to build a base from, you’ll be able to see and do so much more than you’d think possible. Buckle up, and enjoy the ride!
