Accommodation: If required, we suggest you book early for both accommodation and flights or ferry. Hobart is now a happening place at this time of the year.
In previous years we have had a number of cancellations due to inability to obtain flights and accommodation at reasonable cost at short notice.

The website www.tripadvisor.com offers good independent advice by travellers on accommodation options in Hobart.
We suggest that you approach accommodations individually, use AirBNB or one of the many accommodation booking sites.

We look forward to seeing you!!!
