Tips for driving a campervan in Tasmania

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.

  • Although there are plenty of caravan parks to go around, Tasmania becomes extremely busy during the holiday seasons (December, January, 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 4WD.
  • 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.
