Hobart Airport Transportation
Located in the small town of Cambridge, which is just east of downtown Hobart, Hobart International Airport offers a simple way to get to know Australia’s island state of Tasmania. Drive across scenic stretches, from the shores of Tiger Head Bay to bridges crossing River Derwent, all by booking the right ride. Whether it’s a slow and steady pace through the mountains with a private sedan or a speedy drop-off to an event courtesy of a taxi, the best option is always waiting.

Hobart Airport Shuttles
Located in the eastern city of Cambridge, Hobart International Airport is actually 11 miles from the capital city, making instant rides to Hobart’s hotspots especially helpful. Reserve a shuttle from either local sedan or taxi cab companies to hop on the moment you land, choosing the simplest route instead of a Tasmanian whirlwind.
Pick the coolest part of town to enjoy your trip in, getting dropped off in the buzzy southern neighborhood of Battery Point for bayside parks and instant access to Salamanca Market, or go even more south for a wide array of beaches and rocky landscape in Sandy Bay. Enjoy close access to the iconic views of Mount Wellington afterward, overlooking the town by staying in either South or West Hobart, alternately staying close to the acclaimed botanical gardens and old homes of New Town in the popular North Hobart area instead.
Beyond picking the right hotel, neighborhood, or vehicle, making sure you keep track of all your to-dos is the easiest way to keep the day’s treasures from slipping away. Print out your confirmation e-mail the moment it arrives, doing the same with your hotel reservations as well as any other events you have scheduled. A stylistic way to keep organized is with a hardy travel journal sleeve, many of which offer hidden compartments for documents as well as popular leather designs that blend in perfect with the outback.
About Hobart International Airport
With constant expansions and additions, it’s easy to enjoy the handful of shops and restaurants scattered across both terminals. Spend some time shopping to make delays fly by, whether it’s through last-minute souvenirs from Tasmania & Beyond or the extensive clothing and travel gear at Australian Way, not to mention quick reads from Runway News. As far as food goes, grab-n-go eats are available at The Marketplace while fresh coffee and baked goods can be found at Black. You can also grab a cold one at Iron House Brewery, or indulge in total seclusion through either of 2 on-site VIP lounges.
Those planning to stay near the airport, or simply in the eastern town of Cambridge, should enjoy themselves through Tasmania’s acclaimed nature. With 4 golf clubs surrounding the airport on all sides, getting a view of the bay while taking a work break is as easy as walking outside, while those in search of an entrenched experience should delve into the trails at Pittwater Nature Reserve, afterward complimenting the lows with the highs at Mount Rumney Conservation Area, which rests just south of the Meehan Range Nature Recreation Area. Cambridge is also home to idyllic beaches, including the buzzy shops and eateries along Seven Mile Beach as well as the total isolation of Cremorne near Pipe Clay Lagoon.
When the afternoon turns to dusk, get a great view of the bay by staying close to central Hobart’s attractions, moving through the eclectic recipes and handicrafts at Salamanca Market until you reach the harbor views provided by the stately Constitution Dock. A great place to watch the sunset is Cape Bruny Lighthouse, located atop an island cliff south of downtown, not to mention countless hidden shorelines, from Hinsby Beach to Goat’s Bluff Lookout. Enjoy an all-in-one evening at a hotspot that can take care of you at the end of the day, choosing between the 1913 architecture & rooftop café at State Cinema or the entrees & pick-me-ups from Cultura Espresso Bar & Restaurant.
