Since Tasmania is not connected with direct international flights, the tourists have to transit from Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney or Brisbane and take a direct flight towards Hobart, Launceston, Devonport or Burnie.
Jetstar and Virgin Blue operate directly from the four major cities of Australia towards Hobart. Qantas provides direct flights from Melbourne and Sydney and other available options include Regional Express from Melbourne towards Devonport and Burnie.
With a daily high speed ferry called “Spirit of Tasmania” operating directly from Melbourne to Devonport at night and a third ferry operating thrice a week from Sydney to Devonport, Tasmania is easily accessible in a span of 10 hours journey. The ferries operating from Melbourne have a capacity of carrying 1400 hundred passengers and 650 vehicles. With an excellent cuisine onboard to offer that also includes bars, lounges and live entertainment the trip to Tasmania cannot be afforded to miss!
