Coach touring

Many national coach touring companies offer traditional coach touring around Tasmania. They provide extensive year round multi-day intineraries for budget, deluxe and luxury travellers. This type of Tasmanian holiday allows visitors to enjoy the full experience without the worry of driving or planning an individual itinerary.


Specialised small escorted group touring is also available to cater for particular interests and the youth touring market. Many of these tours originate from specialised overseas operators who also cater for non-English speaking clients.

Local tour companies

There are many choices for local touring options in the main centres covering sightseeing, small group guided tours to the regions; specialised tours to visit wine trails; adventure based activities, wildlife, historic sites and especially in Tasmania - exploring our spectacular islands and coastline by boat. Many tours include a small coach tour to get to the tour.

Car touring

Self-drive car touring is a favourite way of holidaying in Tasmania. Tours combining great value car hire and accommodation as a touring package allow maximum flexibility - just follow the recommended itinerary.
