Also known as Nuenonne and Palawa kani among indigenous communities, the historic aboriginal land became a British penal colony in the 1850s. 

Overcoming its grim past, today the isle is replete with picturesque campgrounds and grandiose national parks that both Aussies and visitors cherish. Even better, cities are well-connected thanks to Tasmania's solid road infrastructure. Also home to immense eucalyptus forests, endemic animals like platypuses, wombats and Tasmanian devils, plus some of the world’s cleanest air, this state is among the most popular locations for Australia car hire based on so much stunning outdoor scenery. All the while, the isolated island is known for its many festivals, rustic traditions and stellar food exports including seafood, cheese, bread, honey, nuts, truffles, craft beer, whisky, gin and wines!

As you prepare for your expedition across Tasmania, perhaps now you’re considering which natural wonders you’d like to visit. Along those lines, you’re probably deliberating which vehicle would be most conducive to traverse a variety of terrains and landscapes. Well, depending on the nature of your trip and your interests, Kemwel is pleased to provide the most affordable car rentals rates throughout all three of Tasmania’s major cities! Whether you’re intending to tour the landscapes around Hobart, Devonport or Launceston, we are here to assist! Continue reading to learn more about these island hubs and our affordable one-way car rental options in Australia! For the sake of freedom and leisure, we’re confident that you’re going to adore your stay in Tassie with your own set of wheels.

Cheap Devonport car rental

Cheapest Devonport car hire KemwelTo commence your Tasmanian holiday, one of the most popular ways to reach the lush island involves hopping on the Spirit of Tasmania ferry from Melbourne to the northern city of Devonport. Vehicle fares reportedly start from AUD$89 and passenger fares start from AUD$79. On the other hand, Devonport Airport car hire is also available over the Kemwel booking engine!

With easy access to neighboring Launceston via the National Highway 1, this hub is an optimal spot to gain your bearings before hitting the road with your Devonport car rental. This is especially true in regard to the profusion of nature within the northwest corner of the island. Ranging from the dramatic rocky coastlines of the Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area to trekking up the snow-capped mountains at the Walls of Jerusalem National Park, a short-term car lease in Devonport will certainly motivate travelers to get out and explore this area’s utterly breathtaking environment!

Other local landmarks include the Bass Strait Maritime Center, the Mersey Bluff Lighthouse with its signature red stripe, Coles Beach, and the Tasmanian Arboretum full of unique tree species. Let us not forget about the extensive path network either! For any cyclists or avid long-distance hikers, this city is also where the 286 mile (460 kilometer) Tasmanian Trail begins from Devonport to Dover in the southeast. There are 15 sections, each requiring approximately a one day journey via bicycle or horse.

Cheap Launceston car rental

Launceston car rental AustraliaFrom playing golf at the Barnbougle Dunes or touring the lavender fields at the Bridestowe Lavender Estate, there is no shortage of engaging outdoor activities to enjoy with your car rental from Launceston or the Launceston Airport. Being Tasmania’s second-largest city, one of the primary landmarks for visitors is the picturesque Cataract Gorge. Matter of fact, this just so happens to boast the world's longest chairlift measuring 1,010 feet (308 meters) and providing unbeatable views of the city. Animal enthusiasts can also check out the Tasmanian devil breeding program at the local Tasmania Zoo.

Within the greater Launceston area is another one of Tasmania’s top attractions: the Bay of Fires. Established on the northeastern coast about three hours away with your Launceston car rental, this area is saturated with white sand beaches, azure waters, and crimson-colored granite. With the north portion of the bay belonging to Mount William National Park, some of the most prominent activities involve camping, boating, bird watching, fishing, swimming, as well as surfing with the locale’s impressive waves.

Last but certainly not least, a two-hour drive west with your Launceston Airport car hire is the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. Composed of protected rainforests, majestic alpines and pristine mountains, this conservation area is a gateway to the lush Central Highlands of Tasmania. Here visitors will encounter high-levels of biodiversity ranging from surreal-looking fungi to truly extraordinary endemic animals. Some of these include Tasmanian pademelons, Bennett's wallabies, quolls, Tasmanian devils, short-beaked echidnas, platypuses, common wombats, possums, among other creatures.

Cheap Hobart car rental

Cheap Hobart Tasmania car rentalFrom Launceston, the next logical step in your Tasmania road trip will be paying a visit to the capital city of Hobart. Half the fun, though, is traveling between these locations due to the spectrum of natural treasures found in between! Take the Freycinet National Park, for example, where dolphin watching from Hazards Beach and wandering red-necked wallabies await newcomers furnished with a bargain car rental from Hobart Airport! Not far from the city center is also Mount Field National Park renowned for its temperate rainforests, local fauna such as bandicoots and echidnas, in addition to a series of tranquil waterfalls.

Once arriving in Hobart, certainly one of the first things that visitors will appreciate is the scenic view of Mount Wellington lingering on the horizon. Known as Kunanyi in the local aboriginal language, this peak will provide an special vantage point of Hobart and its vicinity. With a major elevation gain, the loop trail is also partially paved and kid friendly.

If hiking isn’t exactly your forte, rest assured that you can take your Hobart car rental up to the summit from Pinnacle Road. History connoisseurs may also appreciate paying a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Port Arthur, the town and former convict settlement situated 60 miles (97 kilometers) from Hobart. According to UNESCO, Port Arthur and its collective Gothic-style buildings are “the best surviving examples of large-scale convict transportation and the colonial expansion of European powers through the presence and labour of convicts.” Among the most popular structures is the medieval-looking neo-Gothic convict church.

Another well-known nature activity to do with a Hobart car hire is stopping by the Inverawe Native Gardens, the largest landscaped native garden in Tasmania. Just 15 minutes outside of Hobart, this is where newcomers can breathe in the fresh air on 22 acres of native plants, not to mention over 100 bird species roaming about the grounds. Other popular local activities include shopping for artisan crafts at Salamanca Market or visiting the local botanical garden or seeing an indoor or outdoor exhibition at the trendy Museum of Old and New Art (MONA).
