Cheap Flights to Tasmania

Tasmania is one of the most unique islands in the world. An Australian state separated from the rest of the country by the 240km-wide Bass Strait, Tasmania has turned its isolation and rugged landscape into a massive asset. Over 40% of the island is protected as either a national park, a wildlife reserve, or a world heritage area! It is also so compact that you can start your day in an ancient alpine meadow and be at a gorgeous white sand beach by afternoon! Tasmania's colonial history, unique open-air museums, and stunning natural landscapes draw tourists from all over the world despite its remote location.

Getting to Tasmania

Tasmania is home to a number of regional airports, but the two biggest ones are located in Hobart (HBA) and Launceston (LST). If you are traveling internationally, you will almost certainly end up in one of them! 

Unfortunately, there are no direct flights available from Canada to Tasmania. You'll have to stop in Sydney, Brisbane, or Adelaide first. Canadians traveling to Australia require an E.T.A. (electronic travel authorization) for business or tourism purposes. The E.T.A. can be purchased online for $20 through the Government of Australia website.

The Best Time To Visit Tasmania

Australia's seasons are opposite of those in Canada. The summer months are in December, January, and February, and include mild weather and lots of tourist activity. Despite that, there is still plenty of wilderness to roam crowd-free! If you want to travel at a quieter time, try the autumn months of March, April, and May. That's when you'll see the best deals on hotels and nice, mild weather (similar to Canada's late spring). Despite Tasmania's location, it has fairly mild weather year-round without extremes in the winter or summer. 

What to Do in Tasmania

Tasmania is well-known for its remote location and vast expanses of wilderness to explore. Even so, there are plenty of museums, markets, historic sites, and festivals to check out along the way! Here are a few ideas for inspiration:

  • Head to Port Arthur for a day's worth of exploring in a massive open-air museum. Formerly a massive 19th century convict settlement, it's now a very popular historic site.
  • Take a private cruise through Bruny Island in southern Tasmania, where you'll see stunning rugged cliff faces, squeeze through the narrow gap between the cliffs and the famous "Monument" land formation, and explore deep sea caves.
  • Enjoy some cool-climate wines at Moorilla winery, then head underground to the quirky Museum of Old and New Art inside the winery - it is the largest privately-funded museum in Australia!
