Choose your style of Tasmania hotel
Because people come to Tasmania for many different reasons, there are several different styles of hotel to choose from. If you have business in the city – whether that’s of a corporate nature or simply the business of discovering all the best restaurants, cafes and bars – then you’ll find a good range of hotels, from simple to deluxe. Scattered all around Tassie you’ll also find elegant B&Bs, country lodges and hotels, eco retreats and cosy cabins.
Where to stay in Tasmania
Tasmania’s north coast is lined with charming coastal towns, from beach-bound Ulverstone and Penguin in the west to Bridport in the east. Burnie, the state's fourth largest city, is a perfect place to base yourself, with holiday villas and apartments that dot the downtown district.
Further along in Devonport you will find plenty of guest houses, boutique lodges and B&Bs. Launceston and Hobart are the biggest metropolitan areas on the island, and home to luxury hotels such as the 4.5-star Hotel Grand Chancellor in Launceston and the 4.5-star Wrest Point Hotel in Hobart. Freycinet National Park in the east and the Cradle Mountain-Lake Saint Clair National Park are some of the most visited attractions in all of Tassie, with Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge offering cosy mountain luxury.
Best time to stay in Tasmania
Tasmania has four distinct seasons, with the warmest months from December through to March. During summer, the average maximum daily temperatures sit between 17 and 23 degrees Celsius, while temperatures between 3 and 11 degrees Celsius are the norm for winter. Autumn is spectacular in Tassie, and winter gives you the chance to enjoy fresh sunny days and warm cosy nights in front of the fire. Tasmania is known for several world-class festivals such as Hobart’s Dark Mofo during midwinter, so check out what’s on before you book because festival times can be busy.
Getting around Tasmania
The best way to get around Tasmania is to drive. Being an island, car hire in Tassie is very popular although you can bring your car across aboard Spirit of Tasmania which sails from Melbourne to Devonport. The cities and towns are very easy to navigate on foot due to their fairly compact size but if you hope to see a range of the island’s incredible natural wilderness, car is the best option by far.
