If coming from Hobart, follow the Tasman Highway north-east until you reach Orford.
If coming from Launceston, there are two options: you can take the fastest route through the middle of the state, travelling along the Midlands Highway, then taking Lake Leake Road just past Campbelltown to the Tasman Highway. Alternatively, you can take the scenic option by hitting the Tasman Highway straight out of Launceston heading East. Once you reach St Helens, the highway heads south, taking you through Bicheno, Swansea and several other small coastal towns along the way.
We recommend flying into Hobart airport, as it’s the closer option at only a 50 minute drive away. If flying into Launceston airport, you can expect a 3-4 hour drive depending on the route (though you can also expect some lovely scenery).
Transport options are limited outside of the two cities. The best option is to hire a vehicle and make the drive, however there are daily coaches travelling up and down the East Coast via Tassielink.
