Tasmania is Australia's only island state and is one of the nation's top holiday destinations. A compact island, Tasmania offers a variety of things to see and do, with most destinations being only a few hours apart.
Travellers begin by crossing Bass Strait by boat or plane, before embarking on their holiday. Many visitors opt for a self-drive holiday when touring Tasmania, either by hire car or in their own vehicle. Below is some information to help get you started with your Tasmanian holiday plans.
Bringing your own vehicle, or simply choosing a sea journey, you can commence your Tasmanian holiday on board the Spirit of Tasmania.
The Spirit of Tasmania offers nightly sailings year-round, and a series of daytime crossings during the summer. Enjoy live entertainment, choose fine dining or bistro meal options, relax in one of the bars or lounges, or try your luck in the gaming room. If travelling with children, they offer a playroom and a games arcade to keep them entertained.
A variety of accommodation options are available, with a range of inside and porthole-view 2 and 4 berth cabins, all with private facilities.
