Looking for the most beautiful, unspoilt place in Australia to take a holiday in your campervan, motorhome or caravan? Then book a ticket on the Spirit and pack your sense of adventure, because Tasmania is where you’re headed. This small island state just off Australia’s south coast is known for its vast and rugged wilderness, which is largely preserved and protected within parks and reserves.
Tasmania has four distinct seasons, yet can be a lot cooler than much of the mainland.
In summer, the average temperature is around 20 degrees Celsius, yet in winter it can fall to around 5. Rainfall varies dramatically across the island, with the dry city of Hobart on the South East Coast and lush rainforests on the West Coast. Regardless of when you decide to visit, you should be prepared for all eventualities, especially when bushwalking, because the weather in TAS can change quickly and dramatically.
In Tasmania, there are more than 50 caravan and camping sites spanning from the North, South, East & West Coaststo Hobart, Launceston and the Midlands. Many of these sites are located in stunning surrounds and include top notch facilities at very reasonable prices.
Whether you want to go trekking on Cradle Mountain, take a scenic drive by the highland lakes,hike through old world pine forests in the South West wilderness, laze on the beach in the Bay of Fires or indulge your inner foodie with the abundance of fresh local produce in Hobart, TAS has got you covered.
