For my brief visit to Tasmania at the end of June, I have been considering bus travel as an alternative to hiring a car. I have a good idea of where I want to go and have found that the coach line, Tassielink, can take me there at low cost.
Tassielink: Budget Bus Travel
Words by Roger Findlay and Photos by Dan Fellow
Tassielink has a good website featuring routes, timetables and cost. Frequent services cover most of the state making it an ideal form of travel for the student or backpacker on a low budget. I will be arriving by air in Hobart and, after most of the weekend, I want to visit places close-by including Triabunna, Dunalley and Franklin where I will stay for at least one night at each.
TassieLink: Don’t Miss the Bus!
Believe it or not, I can do all of this bussing around for the grand total of $106.10. Even less if I qualified for the concessions! For a bit more money, if I had more time, I could visit Bicheno, Dover or Strahan. Tassielink has them covered as well as all of the towns on the way.
