Travelling to Tasmania

By Air

Regular flights with Jetstar and QantasLink link Launceston with Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane with direct flights.  Virgin Airlines mostly flies from other cities to Launceston via Melbourne.  Travellers from Adelaide, Perth and other centres will need to make a change in Melbourne.

By Sea and Road

The Spirit of Tasmania travels across Bass Strait from Melbourne to Devonport every night in each direction, leaving Melbourne and Devonport at around 7.30 pm.  A Tassielink bus meets the Spirit of Tasmania in Devonport and provides an express service through to Launceston.  If you are bringing a car or caravan, the drive from Devonport to Launceston is 100 kms.  Allow two hours to make the journey.
