Hobart Airport Campervan Hire, Tasmania

Compare & Book RV Rentals at Hobart Airport, Australia

Hobart is the capital city of the Australian Island State of Tasmania.  Just a short airplane ride from any major mainland Australian city; Hobart is on the south coast of “Tassie”, as the locals call it.  You can reserve your motorhome or campervan rental online before you travel; and then pick up the keys from your Hobart airport campervan hire and recreational vehicle (RV) rental depot.  With a little forward planning it is possible to explore the entire Island in a couple of weeks.

The roads in Tasmania snake through beautiful landscape; but can be tiring as they are meandering two lane stretches and in places can be narrow, so make sure to take a rest when you need it and prepare to share the driving if possible.  The local advice is to always plan for the trip to take longer than expected. There are holiday parks and caravan and camping sites that will accept rental motorhomes, hire campervans and recreational vehicles with truly amazing locations and facilities throughout Tasmania.

Road Trip by campervan rental around Tasmania

Before finalizing your Tasmania motorhome rental route, contact your desired stop-off locations to make sure they are open, as many are seasonal.  You can visit the islands highlights in a breathless ten days.  Take a day or two to explore Hobart city and harbour; enjoy the restaurants and nightlife, visit wineries and the Cascade Brewery, and then see some of the city’s finest artists showcase their work at Salamanca Arts Centre.

Just outside of Hobart, rev up your motorhome rental to explore the Huon Valley and Mount Field National Park.  A day trip further afield to Port Arthur Historic Site is a must for any visit to Tasmania.  This fascinating former convict settlement juxtaposes the colorful and often tragic history of the settlement of the Australian continent with the breathtaking beauty of the Tasman Peninsula.  Don’t miss the chilling after dark Ghost Tour.
