How to get to Launceston

As Tasmania is Australia's Island State, there are only two ways to enter the State – either by plane or ferry.

Launceston airport is located just 15km from the city of Launceston and serves more than 1.3 million passengers annually. Jetstar, Virgin Australia and Qantas all operate frequent affordable direct services between Launceston and Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.

For some, it  can be a toss-up between flying, or catching the boat and bringing your own vehicle. The trip over Bass Strait on the Spirit of Tasmania ferry takes about 10 hours or so. May to November the twin ships do one sailing each a day, leaving Devonport (Tasmania) and Melbourne (Victoria) in the evening and arriving at their respective destinations early morning, passing each other on the high seas in the dark of night.
