As Tasmania is Australia’s Island State, there are only two ways to enter – either by plane or ferry with the Spirit of Tasmania.
The Spirit of Tasmania arrives in Devonport, which is just over an hour from Launceston. You’ll enjoy a unique drive through rural Tasmania, incorporating a large part of the Cradle to Coast Tasting Trail.
The Launceston Airport is located just minutes from the city, and is a short drive by Hire Car, Taxi, Ride Share or Airport Shuttle Service.
