Best Cities to Visit in Tasmania

  • Cole’s Bay: Known for the pink granite cliffs overlooking Oyster Bay, this seaside village in eastern Tasmania also features Wineglass Bay, Honeymoon Bay and Freycinet National Park. Enjoy the water with kayak tours and eco-cruises or stay on land for a winery tour and delectable local cuisine. 
  • Launceston: In Tasmania’s second-largest town, visit restored colonial buildings and exquisite public squares and parks. Explore the hiking trails, cliffs, cascades and gardens of Cataract Gorge. Enjoy the lagoons of the Tamar Island Wetlands and see swans, ducks and pelicans. 
  • Strahan: Despite its remote location on the west coast, this charming port town is fast becoming one of Tasmania’s most visited gems. Explore the quaint and colorful waterfront, the beaches and the sand dunes. Take a cruise down the Gordon River through untouched rainforest or a trip on the West Coast Wilderness Railway past some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world. 

Summer in Tasmania

In January and February in northern Tasmania, see the lavender in bloom at the Bridestowe Lavender Estate. Down south in Hobart, you can watch the Sydney to Hobart Yacht race. The Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) MOFO Festival and Launceston’s Festivale feature Tassie music, art, food and vibrant crowds. Throughout Tasmania, you can hike countless trails and swim at countless beaches, but don’t miss out on the Bay of Fires, with its bright orange rocks, white sand, and crystal-clear waters.

Excellent car was brand new 2022 Corolla , pick was easy and SIXT was very accommodating with drop off times which helped but found returning the keys when busy was a real pain had to stand behind 4 people in front for almost 30 mins just to hand back vehicle keys which was a bit unprofessional 🤷‍♂️ especially when your at an airport

The customer service man was extremely helpful. He stayed back a few hours extra to make sure that we got our rental car. Our flight was over 7 hours late and landed a few hours after closing time. This stressed us out and I was thinking that we will be stranded without a car and we going to waste more time the next day picking our rental. Virgin airlines let us down but SIXT Launceston went out their way to help us with beyond and above with fantastic service. Great customer service is rare today.

Thank you again
