Hobart University of Tasmania

Directions, Transport and Travel To and From Hobart University
(Hobart, Tasmania - TAS, Australia)

Hobart is well served by an international airport connecting it to the rest of Australia and neighbouring countries. It has no rail service but has an excellent motorway system, providing fast, efficient transport within the city.

Travel by Air

Students from other countries and the rest of Australia usually arrive at the Hobart International Airport, 17 kilometers from the Hobart city centre. Hobart University can arrange for pick-up of new students from the airport straight to the campus, but for visiting students and families, there are several other transport options.

Hobart International Airport (HBA) Information - Useful information about Hobart (HBA) Airport

If you are driving, the most direct way out of the airport is via Addison Drive and out to Holyman Avenue. This will take you to a roundabout - the first exit leads to Queenstown and George Town, and the third exit takes you to St. Mary. Car rental services are easily accessible from the airport. The airport carries the following car rental companies: Hertz, Avis, Budget, Europcar, and Thrifty. Booking online though our recommended provider gives you access to availability and best deals among all of these companies collectively.

Car Parking

The airport has spacious parking lots for cars and vans, but it can get crowded during the peak seasons. Most students, and often their families, arrive from late August to early September. If you cannot schedule an earlier arrival to avoid the rush, arrange for a pickup service from you car rental company about a week ahead.
