How to get to here
If you are coming from interstate you can fly QantasLink into Devonport or Regional Express into Burnie airports direct from Melbourne Airport. Both flights are just over an hour. Alternatively you can board the Spirit of Tasmania in Port Melbourne and arrive in Devonport nine hours later. Hire cars are readily available in Devonport and Burnie.
Tasmania has some of the world’s strictest quarantine regulations. There are serious restrictions on bringing fruit, vegetables, seeds, plants, flowers, fish, birds, animals plus other items into Tasmania. On the other hand there are quite a lot of items you can take with you when you leave such as meats, seafood, flowers and fruit but it depends on which state you are travelling to. Check the Department of Primary Industries and Water website for a list of items you can bring in and take out.
