If you will need accommodation for yourself, friends, family or crew we urge you to plan early.
Summer in Tasmania is peak season and many accommodation choices can book out months in advance. Our travel partner Tas Vacations can help you with a range of options.
If you have not been to Tasmania before, it’s worth noting that you don’t need CBD or waterfront lodgings to enjoy the Wooden Boat Festival. Twenty minutes driving opens up many more accommodation choices in nearby areas including Kingston, Bellerive, and the Northern Suburbs a bit further out you will find Richmond and New Norfolk. Our roads, even in summer, are far less crowded than mainland highways and the drive is often very picturesque. A little longer drive opens up the East Coast, D’Entrecasteaux Channel, the Tasman Peninsula and the Midlands Highway. There is parking available in Hobart at the Domain (5 minutes from the Festival site) and at several CBD car parks. Fees may apply, but they are generally much less than other capital cities. Coach services including Redline and Tassie Link connect regional towns with the city with limited services on Festival weekend.
If you have accommodation available and would like to discuss inclusion as a provider to the Festival please contact us.
