Tourist information

Booking your trip to Tasmania is an absolute breeze with our step-by-step guides and tourism information

Option One: Spirit of Tasmania

If you're travelling from Melbourne and planning to extend your stay in Tassie, the Spirit of Tasmania is a great, no-fuss way to get you, your bike and your entourage to Tasmania.

  1. Book your Peaks Challenge ticket

  2. Book your spot on the Spirit of Tasmania

  3. Book somewhere to stay in Devonport or surrounds

  4. Head to a Peaks Challenge training ride

  5. Extend your stay and enjoy Discover Tasmania

  6. Put your bike on the car, the kids in the back and enjoy!

 

Option Two: Fly

If you're short on time, flying is a quick and efficient way to get to Tassie. To avoid any dramas getting your bike over there, we recommend flying to Launceston, as the small planes that fly into Devonport only have limited capacity for bikes.

It's just over an hour's drive and you'll get to experience a section of the Cradle to Coast tasting trail, including the Ashgrove cheese factory, chocolate tastings and a raspberry farm.

  1. Book your Peaks Challenge ticket

  2. Book your flight to Launceston with Qantaslink, Virgin or Jetstar

  3. Book a hire car - Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz, Thrifty and Redspot all operate from Launceston Airport

  4. Book somewhere to stay in Devonport or surrounds

  5. Head to a Peaks Challenge training ride

  6. Extend your stay and Discover Tasmania

  7. Box up your bike and head to the airport. There are bike assembly stands when you arrive at Launceston airport, so you'll be in Devonport in no time.
