Dreading that stopover at Hobart Airport? Don’t kill your holiday vibes hanging around the noisy departures lounge or trying to sleep on the rock-hard floor. That’s no way to start or end your dream Tasmanian holiday! Instead, sleep like a baby in one of our Hobart Airport hotels below. They’re all just a zippy cab ride away!
If you pick a hotel in Cambridge, trust us when we say that’s the closest you’ll get to the airport! It’s practically just across the road and only a five minute drive away. It’s a popular commuter town, but a place where you can still find some shops, take-away joints and all your basic needs. Even better though, around Cambridge you can find a few of the Coal River Valley vineyards! The Coal Valley Vineyard is particularly well-known, and even has its own restaurant along with the fab cellar door sales. Another great nearby spot is the Meehan Range Nature Recreation Area, a wild but green reserve of native bush.
Prefer the beach? No worries! We’ve got accommodation in Seven Mile Beach so you can take a dip between flights to wash away the jet lag. Just 10 minutes around the corner, the township has local shops and restaurants to go with those views across the bay to the Tasman Peninsula. With a long stretch of sand to dig your toes into, if you make it all the way to the end at Sandy Point you could even spot little penguins. But there’s a walk through the bushland behind the beach and a leafy, grassy park to kick back in too. The golfers out there will also love that there are two golf courses right next door!
Sorrell is another spot near the airport that’s fab for a sleepover, just 15 minutes from the airport. It has a touch of history that makes it quite charming! With three National Estate listed churches, a fab antique shop and beautiful old remnants dotted around town, it’s a far cry from the bright lights of the airport. One of Tasmania’s oldest farming towns, Sorrell is surrounded by fields and the Orielton Lagoon, a gorgeous nature reserve.
Why would you bother killing time by the tarmac when you can book a hotel near the airport and save yourself the hassle? Stay just across the road, by the beach or in a quaint, historic town and keep the holiday fun flowing.
