Free Wi-fi

Emergency Services

Here’s hoping you won’t need our emergency services, but it’s best to be prepared. The emergency telephone number in Tasmania is 000.  In case of emergency, do not call any other number, dial 000 immediately and you will be connected to the emergency service you require.

Although tips are not expected here in Tasmania, it’s always nice to tip for great service and our locals will appreciate this gesture!

Tasmanian Visitor Information Network (TVIN)

In Hobart you will find an accredited Tasmanian Visitor Information Centre that’s part of our wider TVIN network. Keep an eye out for the yellow “i” on the blue background where friendly staff can assist you with booking accommodation, maps, itineraries and general travel advice.

There are also white “i” centres that offer limited services in Port Arthur, Taranna and Huonville. For more details please visit the Start With ‘i’ website – click here

Driving & car hire

Tasmania is a great destination for self-drive adventure. A few things to keep in mind – most importantly we drive on the left-hand-side of the road just like the rest of Australia. There are plenty of options for car hire and it’s also important to know our driving times. Some roads, such as the road out to the west coast is long and winding. Although it might not look far on the map, it’s important to allow plenty of time to get to your destination.
