Travel to Tasmania

By Air - Four carriers can get you to Hobart; Qantas, Tiger, Jet Star and Virgin Australia. Frequently scheduled flights operate from most capitals cities to Hobart. Flights take approximately one hour from Melbourne to Hobart. Access from the airport to Hobart city is only 20 minutes. 

By Sea – The Spirit of Tasmania operates from Melbourne to Devonport and this is often a popular option for visitors seeking to explore more of Tasmania.

From Hobart Airport to Hotel Grand Chancellor

Hobart airport is 15 kilometres from the CBD. Allow 20 minutes by Taxi.

Take Holyman Avenue until you come to the Tasman Highway roundabout. At the roundabout take the second exit onto Tasman Highway (for approximately 10 kilometres; please note the speed limit is 110 km) until you come to the end of Tasman Highway. Stay on the left hand lane (please note speed limit drops to 70 km) as you get to the start and over the Tasman Bridge. Continue on the left lane and take the Hobart City exit off the Tasman Bridge. As you get closer into the city (approximately 2 km’s from the bottom of the Tasman Bridge) get onto the middle lane and soon as you pass the Liverpool Street exit stay on the extreme right hand side lane. As you progress you will pass a 9/11 wine and bottle shop and soon as you pass Evan Street intersection (this is one corner of the hotel) you begin to see the main entrance driveway of the Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart.

A Taxi would cost from $45.00 per transfer from the Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart to the Hobart Airport .
