Tips for driving a campervan in Tasmania

A road trip through Tasmania takes you on all sorts of twists and turns. Here's a few tips to help you have a safe and enjoyable journey:

  • It takes around 7 days (1,500km) to do the full lap around Tasmania. There's plenty of long stretches so be sure to take rest breaks every two hours or so.
  • Take note of speed signs on winding roads and slow down.
  • Campervans can be double the height and length of regular vehicles. Make sure to watch for height indicator signs at low level crossings or car parks.
  • It's best to avoid driving at night as many nocturnal animals are active on Tasmanian roads after dusk.
  • Watch out for kangaroos particularly at dusk and dawn.
  • There are many unsealed dirt roads that you can take in Tasmania but be sure to slow down and drive carefully on them.
  • Certain watercourses in Tasmania can be prone to flooding when it storms including the Sullivans Cove and Sandy Bay areas in Hobart, the Agnes Rivulet and Dover Rivulet and parts of Kermandie River and the Franklin Foreshore. If you come across a road that is flooded you should avoid it as driving through can be extremely dangerous.

What to know before renting a campervan in Tasmania
