Car Rental at Launceston Airport Mini Guide

Pick up your hire car keys from the car hire desks near the baggage claim area at Launceston Airport which is a small regional airport 15km south of the town of Launceston in Tasmania, Australia. Whilst you might be staying in Launceston itself, many of its attractions are found outside the city. You will need a hire car to reach many of them including The Tamar Island Wetlands Centre where you can discover the importance of the wetland area to conservation plans and hike out to the bird hides for a closer look at the residents.
 

if you're collecting a hire car from Launceston Airport in Tasmania, here's a handy overview to help you navigate:

Launceston Airport:

  • Location: Launceston Airport is approximately 15 kilometers (around 20 minutes' drive) south of Launceston city center.

Driving from Launceston Airport:

  • Once you leave the airport, you'll be on Evandale Road (B41), which provides straightforward access to Launceston. Follow it north, and it'll merge into the Midland Highway (National Highway 1) which takes you directly into the heart of the city.

Driving in Tasmania:

  • On the Left: Remember to always drive on the left side of the road in Australia.
  • Speed Limits: These are usually signposted, but as a general guide: 50 km/h in cities and towns, 100 km/h on open roads, and 110 km/h on freeways.
  • Seatbelts: It's compulsory for all passengers in the vehicle to wear seatbelts.
  • Mobile Phones: It's illegal to use a mobile phone while driving unless it's hands-free.
  • Drink Driving: Tasmania has strict drink driving laws. It's best not to drink and drive.

Emergency Number:

  • For emergencies, dial 000. This number covers police, fire, and ambulance services.

Tolls:

  • Good news! There are no toll roads in Tasmania.

Fuel Stations:

  • Fuel stations are widespread in urban areas, but if you're planning to drive in more remote parts of Tasmania, it's advisable to fill up when you can as stations can be sparse.
  • Some stations in rural areas might not be open 24/7. Always ensure you have enough fuel, especially if driving during the night or in isolated areas.

Safety Considerations:

  • Wildlife: Especially during dusk and dawn, be cautious of wildlife on the roads. Tasmania has a lot of wildlife, and collisions can be dangerous.
  • Changing Conditions: The weather can change rapidly, especially if you're heading to mountainous areas or national parks. Always check local conditions.

Places to Drive To:

  • Cataract Gorge: A mere 20-minute drive from the city center. A must-visit spot.
  • Tamar Valley: North of Launceston, it's famous for its vineyards and beautiful views.
  • Cradle Mountain: About 2.5 hours' drive from Launceston, it's a famed national park with stunning landscapes and walking tracks.

Enjoy your journey in Launceston and Tasmania. The island offers some of Australia's most breathtaking landscapes and attractions. Safe travels!
