We land in melbourne in early sept 05 on our rtw trip, were in aus for 7 months and really want to go to tasmania, iam presuming that melbourne would be the best place to go from. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to get there taking a limited budget into account.
there are two ways of getting to tasmania- by sea or by air. if you want to fly check out qantas, virgin blue and jetstar. i'm not really sure of the pricing. most flights would probably land in hobart, but some may land at launceston and possibly (less likely) devonport.
if you have a car, you can take a ferry from melbourne to devenport- i'm fairly sure there is an overnight service aswell if you don't want to lose too much day-time travelling time. there is at least one company i know- spirit of tasmania but there may be others by now.
i just found this good website- there is a good section on transport.
hope it helps!
i will check that out
