Where to Start?

The Lap of Tasmania road trip takes you on an easy-to-follow loop around the island, showcasing the best attractions and places to see in Tasmania for all 9 regions.

Arriving in Devonport?

If you’ve taken the ‘Spirit of Tasmania‘ ferry to Tasmania then Devonport and the Cradle Coast region is where you’ll start your road trip.

Flying into Hobart?

If you’re flying into Hobart then we suggest spending some time in Hobart before moving on to either the Derwent Valley (clockwise) or the Coal River Valley (anti-clockwise).
