Tasmania is more accessible than ever these days. There are numerous flights from other Australian cities, while the passenger/car ferry prices have been reduced, and an extra service put on from Sydney.
Hobart has an international and domestic airport (www.hobartairpt.com.au), which is linked by various local airlines to all the major cities in Australia (although often with a stop on the way). International charter flights with Singapore Airlines also arrive at Hobart. Check www.travelonline.com for flights to and within Australia.
Hobart airport is situated 17km from the city centre and is easily reached by shuttle bus. The Airporter Shuttle Bus will deliver you to your accommodation in Hobart, or to transit stations. On departure for the airport you have no need to make a bus booking unless your flight is very early morning (www.redlinecoaches.com.au). Car hire and campervan facilities are also available at the airport.
The Spirit of Tasmania (www.spiritoftasmania.com.au) car and passenger ferries cross the Bass Strait from Melbourne to Devonport in the north of Tasmania.
Passenger trains are no longer running in Tasmania. Check locally for some tourist routes on historic tracks.
