Tasmania – a curious island on the edge of the world!
Our team has been busy booking lots of amazing holidays for our travellers for the Tasmanian spring and summer time for those looking to explore and unwind in the majestic Tasmania with campervan hire from Hobart.
Although beautiful at any time of the year, Tasmania really comes alive in the spring and summertime with its unique mixture of rugged mountains, spectacular coastlines, native forests, sparkling lakes and picturesque beaches. Campervan hire from Hobart is the perfect way to explore this enchanting region.
One of our favourite places while travelling in a campervan hire is to fill our lungs with spring air in beautiful Tasmania – green and lush after the winter rains, this is the perfect time to experience the spectacular scenery, unique flora and fauna, coastal and heritage walks and to see Tassie’s magnificent waterfalls in their full splendour.
Native wildlife is especially active at this time of year; with baby wombats and Tasmanian devils venturing from their mother’s pouches to take their first unsteady steps, colonies of Little Penguins waddling into shore each dusk and humpback whales cruising south with their newborn calves. The temperature sits at a comfortable 18-20°C, wonderful for exploring Tasmania’s famed walking trails in comfort.
The milder weather brings with it a profusion of wildflowers, spreading themselves across the coastal healthland and up into the cool alpine regions, with Tassie’s famous lavender coming into flower and orchards bursting with apples and pears, and sweet new-season strawberries ripe for the picking! Arriving just before peak-period means less crowds and shorter queues to enjoy Tasmania’s vibrant cultural scene at your leisure too…and you’re never far from a world-class museum, art gallery or artistic event here!
