Spirit of Tasmania

Come Aboard!

Whether you’re planning an adventure with the family, or a weekend getaway with a loved one, taking your own car on Spirit of Tasmania is the best way to discover Tasmania’s natural wonders, historic landmarks and delicious local produce.

With the only luggage restriction being your car’s capacity, you can bring your bike, kayak, golf clubs, fishing rods, and your hiking and camping equipment. You can even take your furry friends and set sail for a stress-free holiday. Remember to leave room to bring some local goodies back home.

While on board sit back and enjoy Bass Strait’s beautiful sea views. There is a restaurant, reading room to relax in and two cinemas showing the latest-release movies. The kids will love the Game Zone and adults can enjoy local Tasmanian wine, craft beer, cider and liquors at one of the three bars. On day sailings there are activities and performances for kids and a great line-up of live music.

When it’s time to turn in, there are accommodation options to suit all budgets. Relax in comfort in either a Deluxe Cabin, a Twin Cabin or Four Bed Cabin. All cabins come fully equipped with their own private ensuite, air conditioning/heating and bedding. Recliners are also available as a great, low-cost alternative for budget travellers.

After a good night’s rest, you’ll wake up refreshed and ready to drive straight into the touring paradise that is Tasmania!
