Frequently asked questions
If your trip to Hobart is all locked in but your itinerary is a little on the empty side, we can give you a few hints and tips.You’ll need to jump out of bed early if you want to check out all the great sights that this place has to offer. St. David’s Cathedral and Theatre Royal are non-negotiable. Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens and Cascade Brewery can’t be missed either.Near the city center, Salamanca Market is one attraction you might like to consider adding to your must-see list. If you still have some room on that travel schedule, Salamanca Place and Wrest Point Casino will keep you busy too.
If you find yourself with a bit of extra time and you don’t mind traveling 22 miles, take a look at Cygnet. This popular place offers up loads of things to keep you busy. Heritage Pickers Hut Village, Pelverata Falls and Cygnet Recreation Ground Dog Park alone justify the drive out here. Locals will also likely point you in the direction of Port Arthur, 31 miles away. If you only see one thing here, let it be Port Arthur Historic Site. (But we’re also huge fans of Port Arthur Lavender Farm and Remarkable Cave.)
Steer your car in the direction of Long Beach. It’s 2 miles from Hobart and is a lovely place to lie back and unwind. Go for a peaceful walk by the sea and listen to the waves lapping against the shore.

Hobart Function and Conference Centre (0.3 miles away).
Hobart Convention And Entertainment Centre (1 mile away).

Sometimes rental outlets offer big incentives to pay immediately, so be sure to watch out for these great deals

Having your own wheels in Hobart will give you the freedom to go where you want, when you want. Maybe you just can’t wait to head out of the city, cruise down the open road, and go where the wind blows. If so, pick up the keys to one of our SUVs and check out the bays in the surrounding area. If you just want to soak up the bright lights of the city, jump behind the wheel of something small. Navigating bumper-to-bumper traffic will be a lot easier in an economy or compact car.
Sometimes the journey is more significant than the destination, which makes your car choice important. If you’re about to head off on an amazing road trip around Hobart, a safe and sturdy SUV could be the best solution. If you’d like the best possible price and plan on sticking mostly to the city, an economy car is a wise pick. All you have to do is work out what’ll suit you best, load up the car, and clock up those miles.
