Anyone who is not an Australian citizen needs a valid visa/Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) to enter and spend time in Australia.

With the exception of New Zealand citizens travelling on New Zealand passports, all foreign nationals must obtain a visa/ETA before travelling to Australia. New Zealand citizens can obtain a special category visa on arrival in Australia.

Visas are available from Australian Missions overseas. They are also available, in ETA form, from travel agents and airlines in certain countries.

For more information on Australian visa requirements, please contact an Australian Mission overseas or visit the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) website

Ferry Arrivals

Spirit of Tasmania operates twin passenger/vehicle ferries daily from Port Melbourne to Devonport in Tasmania”s north-west.  The comfort and familiarity of your own vehicle is a great way to explore the pleasures of southern Tasmania and it takes around three and half hours to drive straight to Hobart from Devonport.

Coming from elsewhere in Tasmania

Southern Tasmania can be accessed by a number of key roads.  From the west coast, the Lyell Highway (A10) passes Lake St Clair and goes through Derwent Bridge.  Once you are in Derwent Bridge, technically that”s southern Tasmania.  From northern Tasmania, (Launceston, etc.) your journey south on the Midlands Highway, or Heritage Highway, becomes a southern experience at Oatlands.  This is National Highway 1.  From the east, the drive from Orford to Sorell on the Tasman Highway (A3) plunges into the south just past tiny Buckland.

There are other ways to make your way south, such as around the Great Lake in the Central Highlands and on many of the dirt roads that reveal some of our most unique experiences.  Not all hire-cars are covered by insurance on dirt roads so it is vital to check this detail with your hire-car company.

If you feel like living it up, you can also fly from elsewhere in Tasmania to many places in the south.  Par Avion operates from Cambridge Airport and is available for charter, Tasmanian Air Adventures operate a sea-plane out of Hobart”s waterfront and can land in many of Tasmania”s beautiful waterways and RotorLift Helicopters are based at Hobart Airport and offer charter flights.
