A campervan hire in Tasmania is the ideal holiday for anyone with an adventurous spirit. The three-cornered island state is a unique part of Australia and the ideal getaway for both Aussies and visitors to the country. Laid-back, exciting and gloriously temperate compared to the north of Australia, “Tassie” has something for any intrepid traveller.
Back to nature
Although Tasmania is dotted with pockets of vibrant civilization, such as the state capital Hobart, a motorhome hire trip here is generally all about the beauty of nature. There’s certainly plenty of that to be found in the country, particularly in the southwest corner where you’ll find the Southwest National Park and above that, the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park and Cradle Mountain-Lake Saint Clair National Park.
Over on the east coast, the scenic highlight is without a doubt Freycinet National Park, home to the gorgeous curve of white sand known as Wineglass Bay. The Bay of Fires to the north also earns a spot on the must-see list, a coastal paradise with white sand, blue water and striking orange granite rocks.
Tasmania is a hiker’s paradise. Use your campervan as a base for forays on foot, and take advantage of hiking trails long and short to get up close and personal with the Tasmanian wilds. From the “Great Walks” of which many take a few days or more to short nature trails, there is a trek to suit any lover of the outdoors.
Accommodation on wheels
Campgrounds and holiday parks around the island make it easy to travel Tasmania by camper, and there are also free camping sites which make motorhoming an extremely cost-effective way to see the state. Campervan rental makes for a flexible schedule and plenty of opportunity to stop, smell the roses, make a cup of tea and uncover those gems which evade other travellers.
“Travel like a turtle” is the motto to keep in mind when embarking on a Tasmania road trip - go slow and take your home with you! Motorhome Republic has a wide range of suppliers at the various pick up points, and can get you a great deal on your choice of camper. Roomy 6-berth or compact sleepervan - the choice is yours!
