  • How many people are included
  • Age of the vehicle
  • Extras and inclusions
  • Time of year

When is the best time to hire a campervan in Hobart?

Weatherwise, the best time to visit Hobart falls during the summer months. December to March offers warm temperatures, outdoor activities and lower chance of rainfall to ruin your trip.

For the cheapest time of year, you want to book between April and November. The cold winter months provide fewer crowds so prices for flights and accommodation are cheaper.

What licence do I need to drive a motorhome in Hobart?

A select few companies will rent motorhomes to drivers aged 18-21 years old, but are likely to add a surcharge to your booking.

Are there any age restrictions on driving a campervan in Hobart?

You need to be at least 18 to drive a campervan in Hobart and over 21 to rent a campervan with most companies.

Some companies rent to younger drivers, though they tend to add a young driver surcharge.

Can you park a campervan anywhere in Hobart?

No, parking at any given place in Hobart can result in a fine. There are plenty of low-cost or free campgrounds where you can stop to take a rest.

How long do I need to travel around Hobart by campervan?

A good 14 days in our most southern state allows you to see absolutely everything Tasmania has on offer. For those of you with less time on your hands, we recommend allowing 3-5 days to be able to tick off some of the must-sees.

Tips for driving a campervan in Hobart

While Tasmanian roads are generally a lot quieter than those on the mainland, it can be a tricky island to navigate in a camper.

Here are a few tips and tricks for setting off like a pro.

  • Book your parking. Although there are plenty of caravan parks to go around, Tasmania becomes extremely busy during the holiday seasons (December, January and February). You can't pull up on the side of the road in Tassie, so make sure you book a spot in a park well in advance.
  • Take extra care on the road. Unlike most of the Australian outback, roads in Tasmania are windy and narrow. Take the driving times on your GPS with a pinch of salt and give yourself extra time.
  • Check to see if you need a 4WD. While the east coast of Tasmania is relatively well-developed, the west coast is quite unruly. The road between Derwent Bridge and Queenstown has an incredible 99 bends to conquer and the unsealed Western Explorer Highway should only be tackled by experienced drivers in a 4WD.
  • Drive during the day. Where possible, avoid driving at night. Kangaroos, wallabies, wombats and other creatures of the night are prone to jumping in front of headlights and not all insurance companies will cover you for this kind of damage.
