Hi all,

We are hoping to settle in Melbourne. Can someone tell me how easy it is to travel from Melbourne to tasmania for holidays? I am sure that i read about a ferry somehwere? I looks like a place that i would like to visit.

Hi AlliwsonW,

My hubby frequently goes to Tazzy on business from Melbourne. He normally flies (abou 1 hour) but you are correct about the ferry. There is a ferry that leaves from St Kilda which is the famous seaside beach in Melbourne. I'm not sure what days it sails but I definitely know it leaves on Sunday nights full of business people. The last I saw the tv ad, the charge was $79 per person. There is probably a website too??

Here is the web link for the Spirit of Tasmania, which is the ferry between Tasmania and Melbourne. It sails every evening and in peak times has a day sailing as well. The trip by ferry takes 9 hours. Just remember the $79 tickets are just seating tickets, they are definitely not for recliners or cabins.
